enabling
outsized IMPACT BY women leaders

By providing scholarships and personal support for post-secondary education, the Spark of Hope Foundation empowers bright young women from the Global South to become tomorrow’s leadersespecially from regions that are in turmoil and those that are remote.  

By selecting, investing in and providing holistic support for the post-secondary education of bright young women from developing countries, we ensure equal access to education and promote lifelong learning opportunities. An inclusive and equitable quality education reduces the gender-based disparity that exists in developing countries. This allows for better policy decisions and interventions in those countries which in turn accelerates their development in a more sustained manner.

With university education, each of them is already beginning to impact thousands of lives as doctors, engineers, journalists, lawyers, managers, scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs and teachers.
