The Visão Foundation
My Muse has proudly invested in the efforts of Visão Foundation by offering annual scholarships to female secondary school students aged 12-16 to defray school fees, school supplies, and school uniforms. Central to our selection criteria is that these girls from disadvantaged backgrounds exhibit academic prowess and a strong desire to change their future.
More than ten years after the end of Sierra Leone's civil war, it is still common to encounter school-aged children who lack access to basic education on account of broken social and financial support systems. How was a post-conflict country supposed to rebuild without the bedrock of educated, emboldened, and empowered youth? Ten years ago, the Visão Foundation stepped in with a solution to reach these vulnerable young people and equip them with essential resources. Visao Foundation stands out because their programming aims to make learning fun by building self-esteem and exposing youth to viable career options. Their mission: Enrich, Empower, Transform.
Congratulations to the 2015 My Muse Scholars in Sierra Leone!!
Thanks to our partnership with Visão Foundation, these scholarships defray the cost of school fees, supplies, and uniforms for these phenomenal girls selected for their shining academic prowess and proven community leadership. Go ahead, girls!
