Real Impact, Real Stories
1. Supported over $300,000 in grants to Women
Working with 100 women a not for profit based in Western Australia empowers women, we have supported over $300,000 grant to women across the world.
100 Women is driven by a passionate group of talented women, first inspired by the book ‘Half the Sky’ written by Pulitzer Prize-winning team, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.
100 Women enables everyday people to be involved in creating a world where all women and girls can live safely with access to health, education and economic freedom. They combine donations and knowledge to provide impactful grants.
'“Sometimes you can feel a bit helpless with all the problems of the world. How can I make a difference? I wanted to bring together women who wanted to start building a positive legacy in the world. I’m lucky, I have access to education, health services and employment. I am free from violence. Unfortunately, not all girls and women have these opportunities. How do we connect those who have with those who haven’t and bridge the gap? That’s when 100 Women was born.”
Alicia Curtis – 100 Women Co-founder and Chair.
2. Educating Rural Zimbabwe.
It costs $30 a year to send a child to school in rural Zimbabwe, however some parents cannot afford that. As you can see in the video taken by adopt a degree team on visit to Zimbabwe, some of the kids don’t even have shoes. They are given food at school because for some that is the only meal they get a day. $30 is the cost of a cheap dinner or a weeks worth of coffee.
One of our key mission is to ensure children from financially disadvantaged background as those in the video can have access to quality education regardless of their parents choices or income situation
Adopt A Degree aims to reach out to as many rural communities around the world and deploy resources that help volunteer educators in rural communities have access to materials and tools to provide quality education in line with global standards
