When a girl receives an education, it’s not just her that’s impacted. She positively impacts her family, her community, and even her entire country.
But around the world, approximately 130 million girls are not currently in school, and 15 million of them probably won’t even set foot in a classroom in their lifetime.
We need Canadian Christian Schools to help us change this.
Together with our partners in Zambia, we want to build on-campus dorms and washrooms for girls.
On-campus dorms at one school in Zambia will be constructed, ensuring girls have a clean, safe place to stay while they’re focussing on education.
Girls at six schools in Zambia will have safe and sanitary washroom facilities -- allowing girls to stay healthy while they attend school.
Equal access to a quality, Christ-centred education means both boys and girls can impact their communities for generations to come.
We need your help to advocate for the cause of girls’ education! Share the campaign video with your fellow educators and friends so we can work together to ‘Multiply Her Effect.’
Whether your class is virtual or in-person, we’d love to share about how EduDeo and its partners are championing girls’ education in Zambia and how you can join us.
Read The Chrysalis, EduDeo's school e-newsletter. It will help you bring a global perspective to your classroom by providing lesson ideas, engagement activities for your students, and international project updates.
Download a ready-made lesson plan to fit into your curriculum, and teach your class about girls’ education and gender equality around the world.
Join as a class, group, team, or school to set activity goals, raise donations, and have fun while doing it! You can run a GO: SE event from wherever you are, for however long you want - all to impact girls' education.

“I have seen the hand of God working in my life through education. I don't know how to thank CCAP for helping me with school fees, only God knows how to bless them for me. I am confident I will complete my secondary education with their help. To me, this will be my greatest achievement because I never imagined I would reach this far. My greatest responsibility as at now is to study hard so that I complete my secondary school education and see what the future holds for me.”

“Over the years, girls’ rights have been stepped on in Africa, and specifically in Zambia. So, we believe that when a girl is educated she will be able to stand up for her rights. And these same girls, when they are educated, then they will be role models for other girls to be educated and they will be able to stand up for their rights. Girls here in Zambia have been vulnerable and they’ve been looked down upon to be more inferior to men. But when they are educated, they will know their rights and they will be able to stand up for their rights.”
– Collins, leader, Zambia
“Canadian students should be aware that we live in a world where, in certain parts of the world, girls are not seen as equal. This means they have less opportunities to access good quality education that would equip them to actually be successful. We need to give girls a choice: that would be my message to students in Canada. We need invest more in girls’ education and create opportunities for them to pursue their dreams in life.”
– Mario, educational leader, Dominican Republic
