Scholarships for Women and Women’s Education

It is statistically proven that educating young women proves access to economic opportunities for the woman, her family and even her community. Founder of Scholarships for Burma, Kirk Acevedo tells VOA about his organization and his support in empowering people everywhere through education.

 

Acevedo met a young Burmese woman, Ying who has gone through many hardships in her life and whose one wish was to go to college. 7 months after Acevedo began his foundation, he has collected over $21,000 for Ying to go to college. Ying only needs $6,000 to make her dreams a reality. Watch the video and see why empowering women is access to real equality. You can donate to Scholarships for Burma here: scholarshipsforburma
