We are committed to combatting barriers to quality education and socio-economic empowerment opportunities for girls.


Girls are vulnerable to violence, abuse and discrimination because their age and gender factor subordinates them in the home, school, and community.


We inspire support as possible for girls and young women through mentorship, sponsorship, capacity building and advocacy.
