The Spirit of Giving



When you make a donation to support PESS, you join other generous people who are investing in a better world.


This year most girls have returned to school after being out nearly a year due to the Covid lockdown. We asked many of the students, “Why did you come back to school, after a year of lockdown? Why did you not get married, when your family ran out of money during the pandemic, like many other girls?” We heard the same message repeated by many of the returning students.


“We knew that you would call us back, and that we would have money to continue school, so we waited.”


On Colorado Gives Day, you can help – We want to see them graduate!
