She's the First fights gender inequality through education. 
Here's how it works:


100% of your donations to our scholarship fund supports girls in low-income countries who will be the first in their families to graduate high school.


Our giving levels enable you to be matched with a specific She’s the First Scholar whose progress you can follow.


Why it works



We’re about more than getting girls into the classroom—we ensure they get the tools, mentors, and support system to succeed beyond.



We partner with international programs led by locals who know their communities best.



We influence a larger movement with our expansive network of high school and college campus chapters across the U.S. and worldwide.

50 million girls of secondary school age are denied an education. 
Never underestimate your ability to change that.
