We work hand-in-hand with communities, schools, civil society, Non-Governmental Organisations and ministries to achieve gender equity and equality in education through targeted programmes.
We encourage our partners to enact policies and provide positive learning environments that treat girls and boys equally.
Our work influences government policy, builds public awareness, demonstrates best educational practice through effective models, and encourages the adoption of these models by governments and institutions of education.
This has led to increased rates of girls’ enrollment, retention and completion of school in countries in which our National Chapters operate.
Through our work, girls and women across sub-Saharan Africa have the chance to attend school and overcome material deprivation and social and political exclusion.
A world in which all African girls have access to education, perform well and complete their studies, and gender disparities in education are eliminated.
To promote gender equity and equality in education in Africa by fostering positive policies, practices and attitudes towards girls’ education.
