HCC Girls Scholarship Program

photo Piloted in 2007, the HCC Girls Scholarship program aims to narrow the gender gap in northern Ghana. We provide secondary and post-secondary education opportunities to girls and young women. Scholarships are awarded at the beginning of each academic year to individuals applying to high school, training colleges and universities.

We are currently supporting 15 girls at the secondary school level and 1 girl attending teachers' training college.

We provide:

  • School, boarding and application fees
  • Textbooks and learning materials
  • Uniforms
  • Food and living allowance
  • Transportation costs

In addition, HCC scholarship recipients receive career counseling and leadership development opportunities.

Through this program, we aim to empower girls and women to be advocates, role models and leaders in their families, communities and nation.
