About us

Her Star Scholars sends girls to school. We reach out to girls and young women from impoverished communities around the world who would otherwise not have the chance to receive an education.

We are an entirely volunteer operated organization. 100% of all donations go directly to supporting the children.

Currently we are running programs in the Philippines and Burkina Faso.

In the Philippines, we are supporting a nursery school and kindergarten, sponsoring elementary students, providing scholarships for college students and offering summer enrichment programs. Women from the community are given opportunities to attend classes to develop job and parenting skills. All of our children receive school registration fees, uniforms, shoes, school supplies, books, a daily lunch, and transportation. We also provide annual medical and dental exams.

In Burkina Faso we have a small program sending over 30 girls to elementary school and high school. These children also receive bicycles so they can safely make the long trips to their schools and the families are provided with beans and rice

Future plans in the Philippines include the purchase of a farm which will both help the primary and kinder schools become financially self-sufficient and also offer opportunities for environmental education programs. We also hope to expand our programs in Burkina Faso to provide medical and dental care to the girls.
