SHE-CAN’s journey took flight in Rwanda back in 2011. Today, eleven years later, SHE-CAN supports 103 women on their path to leadership. This means that over $27 million in scholarship funds have been invested directly into future global women leaders.

Once graduating, SHE-CAN scholars begin their change-agent careers. To name a few: one scholar has a cabinet-level position in the Rwandan government, another leads a division of an impactful NGO, and another works in her country’s embassy. Even scholars still in college are making waves – scoring coveted internships, organizing clubs on campus and taking on the roles of international student ambassadors. Each is ready to fight for women’s rights and be a role model for the millions of young women who are discouraged from reaching their potential.

Numbers don’t lie: SHE-CAN’s impact on the world is measurable and significant. And it continues to grow, faster and bigger each year.
