Moving the Goal Posts Scholarship Program


For Granted worked with Moving the Goal Posts, an NGO working in Mombasa, Kenya, to provide educational scholarships for girls in economically depressed Kilifi. Moving the Goal Posts works to promote leadership for girls through education, reproductive health education, HIV/AIDs awareness, and by providing economic opportunities. Moving the Goal Posts is working with young women in the Kilifi district of Kenya because of the high illiteracy rates and lack of opportunities for women in the area. Throughout this area of Kenya, young women face the difficulties of not only high poverty rates, but also of early marriages and unequal opportunities in education. Working with For Granted allowed Moving the Goal Posts to provide scholarships for young girls, who would have otherwise forgone educational opportunities.
