Visionary: Nila Tanzil

Location: Flores, Indonesia

Focus: Education/Girls Empowerment

"If a girl can stay in school for just two more years, the future of the whole country changes."

In Eastern Indonesia, nearly half of girls leave school by the eighth grade. Poverty rates, cultural norms and pressure to marry early combine to form a future without education. But what does it take to imagine a different future?

For Nila Tanzil, the answer brings together her whole life of learning—and created a program where only $350 a year can give a girl another year in school and the support to invent a future of her own imagining.

Nila has 25 current amazing girls being considered for this program. Every $500 raised means a year of school and support for one of them. 100% of your donation will go directly to make that happen.
