Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO)

The SHOFCO model is centered around a school that provides a superior education with free healthcare, food, and psychosocial services. The school gives students the support they need to complete their education and the tools to find a path out of poverty for themselves and their families. Our girls are tomorrow’s leaders. SHOFCO believes education is the key:

"By linking community services with a school for girls, we show that girls and their education are part of an ecosystem of value, and we invite the whole community to participate. Placing schools for girls at the epicenter of our programing makes schools portals for large scale social change. This approach enables both genders to be part of the solution and builds a community invested in its own future—ultimately, transforming the face of urban poverty."
