Girls Leading Africa
Girls Leading Africa seeks to accelerate the development of communities by providing girls and young mothers access to quality education and equipping them with vocational and interpersonal skills to take responsibility for their lives and community. We envision a world where girls in rural communities have access to opportunities, resources, and support like their urban counterparts. Girls Leading Africa believes that when a girl is educated and empowered, she grows to be a woman who is part of decision-making processes in her community- changing dynamics - silenced voices heard, healthy and educated children raised, and economies grow.
Our Vision: To be a lens that diminishes stereotypes, preparing girls to become Nation-builders.
Our mission: To equip girls with skills and educational support necessary for personal growth and community development through Afterschool and vocational training programs.
In 2022, we successfully graduated our first class of 28 girls from our Girls Entrepreneurship Institute (GEI).
