Business for Good

Proud Sponsor of One Girl

Based in Kogarah and Turramurra, Global Education Academy has extensive knowledge in catering to the specific needs of NSW students. However, GEA also understands the way in which an education can change the life of any individual and provide them opportunities they would otherwise never be given.

Recognising the lack of education provided to students in Africa, especially girls, GEA wanted to help change this.

Currently, young girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda face many challenges that prevent them from attending school and receiving an education they are completely entitled to. These barriers include:

  1. A high chance of childhood marriage
  2. Early and/or forced pregnancy, and
  3. Poverty

As a result, GEA is a proud supporter of One Girl.

What is One Girl?

You may have heard of #doitinadress before. This is the fundraising campaign in which participants complete challenges in a school dress to raise money for African girls who are denied an education purely because they were born a girl.

The campaign was founded by the organisation One Girl, a charity devoted to empowering women through education.

In response to the shocking statistic that more than 130 million girls around the globe are not in school because of their gender, One Girl is on a mission to reduce this figure one girl at a time. They provide books, bags and uniforms, pay fees and offer social support and mentor programs to not only put girls in school, but help them get the most out of their time there.

At the time of writing, One Girl has provided 501 education scholarships to these girls!

How is GEA involved?

Global Education Academy is a business for good. We sponsor the UN Global Goals; our close to heart goals are Quality Education and Gender Equality. Every enrolment contributes to paying the fees for two girls in Africa (Sierra Leone and Uganda) to be educated for a whole year.

This means that:

  • The girls are less likely to be married as a child
  • Their income will increase by at least 10% for every year they attend school
  • They are less likely to endure the death of an infant child and,
  • They will most likely pass on their learnt knowledge to their children and send them to school as well

As well as this, they will be equipped with basic knowledge and life skills that many Australians take for granted.
