SHE-CAN (Supporting Her Education Changes A Nation) is a San Francisco based nonprofit that builds female global leadership by helping disadvantaged girls from post conflict countries win U.S. scholarships and return as change-agents. As our world continues to get smaller, raising a global generation of capable and gutsy female leaders is critical to systemic change. That’s why SHE-CAN seeks out smart, ambitious, low-income young women in post-conflict countries, such as Rwanda and Cambodia, and provides them with a U.S. college education, mentorship and leadership training. Our mentors support each scholar through every step of her transformative journey — from securing a scholarship to thriving in school to finding her voice. SHE-CAN has gradually increased the number of scholars accepted into the program each year. As of winter 2017, a total of 46 young female leaders from Cambodia, Rwanda and Afghanistan, with the support of 200+ U.S. mentors, have won full-ride scholarships to top schools including: Lehigh, Lafayette, Bennington, Whitman, Harvard, Smith, Scripps, UC Berkeley, Oberlin, Bucknell and many more.
