We need your help to support this life-changing work!

The Powerful Beyond Measure program is more than just a trip to Africa and it begins with a curriculum taught over 5 months. 

Because we believe important learning also happens outside the classroom, the PBM program includes off-campus educational cultural activities in and around Nanyuki and Morogoro.

Each of the girls is required to participate in pre-trip fundraisers, as we believe the girls should invest in their own experience. But this program simply could not exist without the help of generous supporters like you. 

Program costs include: 

  • Pre- and post-trip curriculum expenses

  • Round trip airfare to Africa

  • In-country travel expenses

  • International medical insurance

  • Room and board for all program participants

Many companies match charitable gifts made by their employees. Contact your HR department to find out if your company matches, and your gift could be doubled or tripled.
