In most countries, completing the last year of high school involves hard work and long hours of study for students and considerable support by parents. In most countries, completing the last year of high school involves hard work and long hours of study for students and considerable support by parents. Such support often includes financial investments by families to provide tuition, books and other learning materials. Final year high school students in Iran are required to sit for a national exam which is very competitive and quite stressful. Unfortunately, students who have access to extra tuition and supporting material gain an unfair competitive edge to those who do not. Through this project, we are aiming to support a group of 15 girls who are completing their last year at high school and preparing to sit at the entrance exam to go to universities. Students study at the Sefid-cha village boarding high school which is close to the city of Behshahr, north of Iran. They live in a remote area and the $960 fund raised by this project will go a long way in assisting them to perform better in the last year of high school and help them to access better quality university studies.
