About us

We are a woman-led charity dedicated to transforming the lives of women, girls and their communities through quality education.

Our mission and vision

Our mission is to empower women, girls and their community through access to quality education, so that they can exit poverty for good.

We are working, with our local partners, towards a future where women and girls are empowered to make informed life choices and lead the way in their own personal development.

Since then, we have come a long way in the mission of providing access to quality education to women and girls. We have supported over 50,000 women and girls through 37 projects.
