Get involved today

Whether you make a donation, take part in an event, or fundraise with friends, there are lots of ways to take action for girls’ education in Africa.

As well as paying school fees and other essentials, such as uniforms, books, and sanitary protection, your support helps beyond the classroom, supporting young graduates with the training and resources they need to become economically independent leaders in their communities.

A gift like no other

Your donation today can help a girl to secure an education. She’ll be able to create the future she imagines — for herself, for her community, and for Africa.

If you need more information on any of the following gift options, please contact us at [email protected] or 415-963-4489.
