Donation of $15,000 from GSU’S Beta Alpha Psi to Imbako Public Health: The Global Impact Project is growing!
Yes! And so this happened… So excited that Beta Alpha Psi, Beta Mu Chapter of Georgia State University, presented a $15,000 check to Imbako public health, towards the Global Impact Project (GIP). It is incredible to work beside and alongside this team of individuals who go above and beyond to allay disparities in access to education faced by the girl-child in rural Kenya. Founded in 2009 as a collaboration of Georgia State University’s J.Mack Robinson College of Business and Imbako Public Health, The Global Impact Project is an initiative that allays disparities in access to education faced by the gild child in rural Kenya, by the provision of academic scholarships. The scholarships availed cover the full academic tuition for the scholars selected and provide a stipend for books. As of 2015, under the Global Impact Project, 20 girls from rural Kenya have been availed academic scholarships! Working with GSU students has been a great opportunity to see the impact that global initiatives can have. What began as a dream to send just 1 girl to college has now enabled 20 to get education! One of the unique things about GIP is that it is students helping students. This model is unique and is one we hope to replicate in other schools, globally. Together, and we plod on to make a positive difference!
