When Females Lead (WFL) Zambia launched a scholarship program powered by Beautiful World Canada (BWC), a not for profit organization based in Canada, that is aimed at providing scholarships for young vulnerable girls to obtain tertiary education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics known as STEM fields. BWC supports scholarships for girls across sub Saharan Africa for vocational, college and university programs by partnering with local organizations. Their projects are currently in Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Ethiopia, and Zambia through WFL.
