Speak Up Scholarships

A portion of our proceeds help fund Speak Up for the Poor's Girls Education Program. 

 

The School of Bravery is proud to sponsor girls' education around the world! We do this by donating a portion of our proceeds to the 501(c)3 nonprofit Speak Up for the Poor.

This justice organization changes the way societies view and treat girls who are at risk of exploitation. Their Girls Education Program (GEP) helps more than 1,400 girls in Bangladesh to stay out of child marriages and other abuses of girls. Speak Up accomplishes this by helping these girls to stay in school all the way through college.

 

 

Thanks to our bravery students, girls around the world are empowered to pursue their brave dreams, have greater agency over their lives, and rise out of poverty.

In turn, these girls become examples in their communities for other girls and women that 1) you are allowed to have dreams and 2) they *can* come true!

The School of Bravery Community knows these girls can achieve their brave dreams if they are given the chance to achieve them. Thank you for enrolling in The School of Bravery and helping make these dreams possible!

These GEP students each have a dream of becoming nurses!

These GEP alums are now graduates and practicing nurses!

Thanks to the Girls Education Program through Speak Up for the Poor, these young women, who very likely would have had an early marriage that prematurely ended their education, have now reached their dream and are working as nurses!
