Tatiana Reis Arturi, daughter-in-law of Knowledgent’s Executive Vice Chairman Manny Arturi, has been on an inspiring mission to send two Ghanaian through a 4 year university.
On November 8th, 2015, Tatiana went to Ghana with a delegation to visit schools and assess their needs. While on this life changing trip she met two brilliant girls, Grace and Susan, whose dream is to go to a 4 year university to become a nurse and a teacher, respectively.
Gender inequality in Africa is rampant and girls are not encouraged, nor have the means, to get an education. In fact, only 3% of Ghanaian women go past secondary school to attain a higher education.
Although they yearn to get an education, these girls have no chance to attend university without a sponsor. Grace and Susan want to change what being a woman in Ghana means but their plight seems to be impossible.
Tatiana was immediately determined to help them with the help of her Co-Chair, Sue Kramer. With a goal of raising $18,000 to cover all expenses for a four-year college degree, the Go Ghana Girls Fund has raised a total of $19,010 to date. As a part of Knowledgent Cares, our employee volunteer program, a number of our Informationists have contributed to this great cause.
The Future of Go Ghana Girls: Any funds that exceed the original goal of $18,000 will go towards future Ghana Girls aspiring to go to university. Their future plan is to create a not-for-profit organization dedicated to putting girls through a 4 year University.
