Plan International is one of the oldest and largest children's development organisations in the world. They work in 51 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas to promote child rights and lift millions of children out of poverty.

Plan has been supporting the campaign ‘Because I am a Girl’ since 2007 to tackle the barriers that deny millions of girls their right to an education. For this reason Plan developed some projects to break down the barriers that prevent girls from being educated and aims to directly support millions of girls to get the education, skills, livelihoods and protection they need to transform their lives.

One of those projects is the 1000 scholarships Senegal project that aims to deliver 1,000 scholarships to girls from nine different villages the possibility to begin or continue their studies in schools and colleges. These grants will help to improve the quality of education of 1,000 girls aged 10 to 16 living in households with few resources, and sensitize communities on the importance of education for girls.


  • Provide educational support to girls who receive scholarships through tutoring and other activities.
  • Train Senegalese coordinators and workers from the school who organize activities for girls.
  • Sensitize communities on the importance of girls education.

Who will benefit?

Thanks to MeQuedoUno clients, 30 scholarships will be distributed to young girls in vulnerable situations.

Reduce the school dropout rate of girls in vulnerable situations which currently stands at 15% to 10% in 2015.
