EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT! Regarding a new GIRL CHILD EDUCATION FUND initiative at the FNIF luncheon in Korea on 21 June. Watch the ICN/FNIF websites for postings.
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 385 girls have been enrolled in the GCEF. We are currently supporting 178 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.
