Teachers smile in their elementary school tuck shop in rural Zimbabwe. Many of the students are vulnerable children, and the tuck shop profits go towards their school fees, uniforms, and learning materials.
World Education managed the program in 13 West African countries in collaboration with local NGOs. AGSP provided more than 188,000 scholarships to cover educational costs for 73,000 girls and boys who are economically disadvantaged, disabled, orphaned, and/or affected by HIV and AIDS.
