Why Girls?

Out of the world’s 130 million out-of-school youth, 70% are girls. The Girl Impact seeks to give girls across Africa a better start to womanhood by not only advancing their knowledge, but by ensuring the boys and men in their community see the value of healthy, educated, and empowered women. Our goal is to see young women and better informed young men, working together to close the huge gender equality gap that still exists in many African countries. Every adolescent girl has the right to health, education, and protection from violence and abuse. By empowering girls and women, we can, in a small way, help girls achieve their potential and help them become more active in their communities and countries.
