“The struggle for gender equality is the single most important struggle on the planet. Nothing comes close to it. Nothing approximates it.”

Stephen Lewis, 2010 



Our Impact

Education is the most powerful tool to improve the lives of girls and young women in East Africa. Girls who are educated become self-confident, strong, critical thinkers, and better decision makers. They marry later, dare to dream, and take leadership roles in their communities.
