Donate To The Chibok Girls’ Scholarship Fund

chibok girl, nigeria, welcome, united states, canyonville christian academy, bring back our girls

Thank you for your help

 

In April, 2014, 274 teenage girls attending a private boarding school in Chibok, Nigeria were kidnapped and enslaved by Boko Haram terrorists.  The school was burned to the ground.  A group of girls escaped, some by jumping off of a speeding truck.

In 2014-2015, Canyonville Christian Academy provided continuing education for four of the Chibok girls and one other victim of religious persecution.  In 2016, we took seven Chibok girls.  Two of these girls remained at CCA and are graduating in the Spring of 2017.  We have arranged for full scholarships, with room and board, to American Universities for these graduates.

We welcome your donation to help cover the costs of this project.

For those who have already donated, thank you for helping these brave young ladies adjust to a new life, far away from home and find healing from the trauma of their recent experiences.

You can make your donation payable to Canyonville Christian Academy and write in the memo part of the check, “Chibok Girls’ Scholarship Fund.”  Mail to Canyonville Christian Academy, PO Box 1100, Canyonville, Oregon 97417.
 
Or you can also help by making a direct donation online via paypal that is exclusively setup for the education and living expenses of the Chibok Girls while they are at CCA. 
 
It is also possible to donate to two girls directly, Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu, through their GoFundMe campaign

  1. […] And she’s excited that some of her Nigerian classmates will join her at school, with the help of the Christian group The Jubilee Campaign, which is raising funds so that all 57 girls who escaped can finish school in the U.S. Mercy’s boarding school scholarship was provided by the Canyonville Christian Academy’s Chibok Girls Scholarship Fund.

  2. […]      The following letter, composed by students and teachers, will be read aloud at today’s special ceremony.      “To the girls still held captive. You may think that you are forgotten. But you are mistaken.  We have never stopped thinking of you, never stopped praying for you and never stopped loving you.  You are not alone.  You are not forgotten.  And one day the whole world will celebrate your freedom.  Someday people everywhere will say of any lost and hopeless cause, don’t give up, be brave, remember the Chibok girls?  Remember how they finally came home?  We will be waiting for you with open arms.  You are not alone.  You are not alone.”      Tonight, the Empire State Building will be lit up in special colors to honor the Chibok girls.  For those wishing to help the girls donations can be made to the Chibok Girls’ Scholarship Fund.

  3. […] The girls were only supposed to stay at the Academy for one year, but a scholarship fund has been started to help them stay for a second year. The money raised from the fund goes to support the girls’ room, board, tuition, counseling, medical needs and other daily expenses. It is the goal of the Academy to help provide the girls with scholarships so they can attend college. The Academy is dedicated to helping the girls adjust to their new lives and to help them heal from the trauma they have experienced. You can help the girls continue their education by making a donation to the Chibok Girls Scholarship Fund. […]

  4. I have been praying for these girls ever since their kidnapping. They are constantly in my prayers and I praised The Lord when these girls managed to escape. I would also like to sew financially in their lives; however, I am a contractor in Afghanistan and can only give via credit cards. I have no checks and don’t prescribe to PayPal Any recommendations?

  5. Thank you Gil for your prayers for these beautiful girls. You can donate through PayPal using a credit card without being a member. There is an option for that once you click donate.

  6. Thank you so much for setting this up to help these girls! I heard about the kidnapping on the news but wasn’t sure what I could do to get involved. It’s good to have another reminder that while there are people doing despicable things, there are also warm, kind individuals doing everything they can to spread love and happiness. Thank you for helping make this world a better place!
