True Grasses focuses on helping poor orphaned and vulnerable girls in Africa to afford to stay in school. In Sub-Saharan Africa, cultural expectations have created a belief system that force girls to be the first to drop out of school and the last to be fed or to receive medical care. Without an education, a girl’s future is bleak: child marriage, domestic servitude, poor health, high mortality rates for her children and low wages.
