About Us

SHE-CAN is a San Francisco Bay Area based non-profit that builds female global leadership by helping disadvantaged girls from post conflict countries win US 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, Afghanistan 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. All 28 are studying at top schools, such as Scripps, Whitman, Bennington, Bucknell, Harvard, Lafayette, Oberlin, Smith, and Haverford.
