A2Empowerment is a non-profit company dedicated to empowering women through education. Since its founding in 2008, the company has worked with Peace Corps Volunteers to award over 1,200 educational scholarships to young women in Cameroon.
Recipients are chosen based on need and merit, with a priority placed on selecting girls in the later years of high school when they are at a higher risk of dropping out. Currently approximately $75 USD will cover tuition, fees and books for a year of school. All company overhead costs have been covered by the company co- founders, so the full amount of all donations is put towards scholarships.
The project is set up as a Peace Corps Partnership Project, so all funding is strictly monitored by the Peace Corps and A2Empowerment.
