Epiphany recognized the impact that STS International has had on the educational opportunities for girls and young women by delivering a new model of educational support for children in developing countries.

Recognizing the importance of education for women in developing countries, Epiphany partnered with STS to provide  a food stipend for the families of 5 promising girls studying at the Nasser primary school in Guinea.  The food is a financial incentive that helps the parents keep the girls in school by replacing what the girls could help produce or earn. 
In a recent interview, ten-year-old Fatoumata, one of our students, shared that she would like to be a computer engineer when she grows up.  Her parents shared their desire for her to able to continue her education through the university level in order to better support her family in the future.

The holistic Whole Child Model is incorporated into the mission on which STS was founded in 2002. After reaching more than 8,000 students, 130 teachers and thousands of parents and community members in 34 schools in Guinea, 2015's Goals include a plan to work with 50 more schools.
