A2Empowerment is a Somerville-based nonprofit company dedicated to empowering women through education. Since its founding in 2008, the company has awarded over 150 scholarships to young women in Cameroon. The project is coordinated by A2Empowerment and Peace Corps Volunteers working in Cameroon. Recipients are chosen by A2Empowerment based on need and merit. In 2011, approximately $65 USD will cover tuition, fees and books for a year of school. The project is set up as a Peace Corps Partnership Project, so all funding is strictly monitored by the Peace Corps and A2Empowerment. To date, all company overhead costs have been covered by the company co-founders, allowing for the full amount of all donations to be put toward scholarships.
