As usual, we'll be counting on you, our generous donors, to cover half the cost of the project. As always, if your donations exceed our target, the additional funds are used to increase the total grant to our partner organization.

Thanks for helping us change lives!
Getting pregnant doesn’t mean you have to drop out of school — unless you live in a place like rural Ecuador, where economics and social pressures limit most young mothers’ opportunities. But quitting is a trap: without an education, you won’t have the ability to earn an income to support your family. Staying in school is essential for these young women to live healthy, economically stable lives. With your help, we can rekindle young women’s hopes for a better life.
We are bringing to scale a pilot project in the area around Guayaquil, Ecuador. Since 2014, Plan International has been working to keep pregnant girls in school. Early results are impressive: girls in Phase 1 have remained in or reintegrated into the Public Education System. Mundito will be investing in the next phase of solutions and success, where Plan will award three-year scholarships to fifty young mothers.
Our support will provide a financial allowance for young mothers to purchase school supplies, uniforms, and transportation. The program will provide individualized follow-up to each student to ensure a successful school year completion. The Plan team will work on violence protection, training on reproductive health, reinforcement of self-esteem, and planning for a secure future.
We’re targeting a grant of $60,000 to launch Phase 2 of the program.
