Girls for Leaders
Girls for Leaders program works with 55 schools and over 5500 girls; in communities that practice Female Genital Cutting and early marriage. This program addresses cultural and logistical impediments to girls’ education to increase their probability of staying in school. We encourage boys to understand, respect and support the rights of girls and women. Consequently, in 2020 we had a 99% transition rate in schools we work with from 45% when the program started in 2014.
