EHV HASHTGERD PROJECT
Our Scholarship Program
30 ENGLISH COURSE BOOKS
20 CHILDREN'S FICTION
and 4 COMPUTERS
...is what we have donated to girls in Hashtegerd, Iran thanks to the donations we have received from 2017-2018.
Many schools across Iran are yet to have access to basic learning tools, connection to the Internet and thus the wider world and educational books such as English language learning resources.
2017-2018 saw EmpowerHerVoice focus on this project by raising awareness and funds to provide these resources. We can also proudly say that our Iran Education Project launched in June 2018 helped open a girls dormitory in Yazd, and schools in both Yazd and Kerman.
We are also looking to create a 'PenPal' project, a link between girls at the Cheltenham Ladies' College and the schools in Iran whereby girls can exchanged information about their respective cultures, traditions and customs. This will enable both the girls in Iran not only to gain an understanding of British culture but will also dramatically improve their English language skills. Current tensions have lead us to postpone the launch of this project, but with time we hope to get the PenPal project up and running!
