Each year for the annual BEF conference held in South Africa with the students, the girls put together the BEF Bookmarks newsletter with updates, stories, and uplifting messages. This year's Bookmarks is a special edition—it commemorates 20 years of helping these incredible young women achieve their educational goals!
Current and past students have come together to share their stories about how the BEF's support has helped change their lives. Also included is a report on the Fund's progress over the last 20 years prepared by Susan Van Scheltema, our program director in South Africa.
Thanks to all our generous donors for making this possible, and for our students for putting this year's Bookmarks together!
