Girls leadership in East Africa


The Challenge:  Adolescent girls face many barriers to staying in school, including poverty, climate change, gender inequality, sexual violence, teen-pregnancy, and child marriage, making them less likely to finish their schooling. While the impact of girls’ education is significant for the girl, her family, the environment, and countries, there are limited supports to girls that help them navigate the barriers and stay in school.

Our Model:

African women mentors

Develop mentorship skills among African women teachers.

girls leadership

Build leadership skills such as self-confidence, public speaking, collaboration and creativity, and build knowledge of girls' rights and advocacy tactics among adolescent girls.

creative advocacy

Provide a platform for girls and mentors to determine a critical topic they want to address through creative advocacy efforts in their school and community and receive peer feedback.

Coaching to women mentors

Provide coaching to mentors and girls as they prepare for advocacy efforts in their schools and communities.
