Get Involved


SHOFCO embraces partner schools as powerful agents of change. In SHOFCO’s School-2-School program, schools from around the United States and beyond champion and support SHOFCO’s free schools for girls. There are so many ways that schools can help support SHOFCO—and we want to help you!

SHOFCO College Chapters

SHOFCO has deep roots in university communities—it was from a Wesleyan dorm room that Jessica and Kennedy launched the concept of The Kibera School for Girls. We understand the amazing force for good that college campuses are and we want you to join us!
