Ever since moving to California in 2003, Tina Kampor always wanted to pay forward her good fortune and she could never forget the girls she knew were struggling back home.
What We've Achieved
Thanks to the generous support of our donors, in our first year as a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Peace Sisters was able to double the amount of students that we reach to about 240 girls in Dapaong, Togo. All of the students who receive our assistance are underprivileged in some way - whether as orphans or by some other family struggle - and all of them would have discontinued their studies by now if it were not for the intervention of Peace Sisters.
Where else can the improvements in girls' education be seen?
Increased opportunities for the next generation.
Enhanced social mobility.
Economic growth both at the family and community level.
Delayed marriage and improved birth spacing in family planning.
Reduced child mortality.
Expanded ability for women to make informed choices and exert control over their lives.
Increased women's participation in government and organizations.
Reduced incidents of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
