Education is something that changes the people and their perspective around you. What if you did not have access to the education you receive today? Just One Person is a unique program that not only educates African girls boy is geared to take them beyond academics.
What is the program?
Just One Person started in 2008 and has been a huge blessing to the girls of Africa since then. It started out as only ministering to 25 girls or so, but has really taken off now. It's more than just educating the African girls, it's about teaching them life skills, so that they help provide for themselves and their families. Empowering these girls allows the whole community to feel involved and empowered.
What is the cost of the program?
The cost of the program is actually quite small in comparison to a lot of similar programs. The goal of this program is to provide women with life altering options. A lot of the program expenses are taken care of by donations, but the girls are asked to help pay nominal money too. The total cost for 25 participants in the program comes out to around $7,000.
