A new FNIF Endowment Fund was launched 21 June 2015 to raise $10 million over the next three years to support more girls in the GCEF. More information can be found on www.gcefcampaign.org
The Girl Child Education Fund (GCEF), a signature initiative of FNIF, supports the primary and secondary schooling of girls under the age of 18 in developing countries whose nurse parent or parents have died. Your donation to the Girl Child Education Fund will go towards school fees, uniforms, shoes and books. Donations to the Girl Child Education Fund can be made by credit card, bank transfer or cheque.
Since the initiation of the programme over 350 girls have been enrolled in the GCEF. We are currently supporting 103 girls in Kenya, Swaziland, Uganda and Zambia. A contribution of just US$ 200 will help cover the costs of uniforms, school books, and fees for the primary education of a girl child for one year, and US$ 600 for secondary education. Approximately US$ 5,000 will secure the education of a girl throughout her primary and secondary schooling years.
