Girl Child Education Fund™ (GCEF)
The Florence Nightingale International Foundation (FNIF), the charitable arm of ICN, launched the Girl Child Education Fund (GCEF) in 2005 with the mission of supporting access to education for the orphaned daughters of nurses in developing countries. Currently, GCEF is present in four countries from the sub-Saharan Africa region: Eswatini (Swaziland), Kenya, Uganda and Zambia.
Since the initiation of the programme over 400 girls have been enrolled in the GCEF and has enable enabled 285 girls to graduate from secondary school. Currently, 77 girls are being supported through this initiative.
An average of 1,400 USD ensures one year of school fees, uniform, shoes and books to an orphaned girl. Your generous donation will support the Girl Child Education Fund and ensure that these orphaned daughters of nurses complete their school education.

Your donation will make a difference
Diana Mumbula, who has been supported on the scheme for as long as she can remember, has recently followed in her mother’s footsteps and qualified as a nurse. Her story illustrates her determination to succeed in life, and the powerful difference that individuals’ donations to the GCEF can make to girls who might otherwise miss out on the vital education that they need to lead full, healthy lives.
