A Partnership for Transformative Girls' Education

We are an independently governed faith-based partnership building a community where all girls and women live in safety, have the education needed to earn a living wage, and the opportunities to build a secure future. We believe in the power of girls’ education, the potential of girls and the possibility of transformation. Education empowers girls  to exercise their agency, make their voice heard, and access their first leadership opportunities. Our transformative services are trauma-informed, holistic, integrated and sustainable.
