As we continue to invest in the advancement of quality education for girls in Africa through partnerships, we are pleased to announce our education partnership with One Girl Can. With a mission to build schools, educate and mentor girls in Kenya and Uganda, One Girl Can is committed to creating a vibrant hub of women who are educated, employed, socially and politically active and committed to helping other girls follow in their footsteps. Their holistic model supports girls from the time she leaves primary school, until the day she gains meaningful employment.
One Girl Can's long-term school partnerships ensure infrastructures continue to support growth and provide a dynamic and safe learning environment. They provide secondary and university scholarships for girls with the greatest need and highest potential. With support from a volunteer team of professional African women, they are able to empower girls to achieve their potential through a series of mentoring workshops.
Founder Lotte, believes every girl should be given the opportunity to reach her full potential. As a successful entrepreneur, she enjoys mentoring and coaching the girls in her schools to build their confidence and encouraging them to believe that anything is possible.
Since 2008, the organization has provided over 400 scholarships, developed nine school partnerships, and have reached thousands of girls with mentoring workshops. Their goal is to provide 1,000 scholarships by 2025, and then keep going!
We are committed to helping One Girl Can achieve their goal to empower girls through education and end the cycle of poverty and gender equality. Find out more about One Girl Can and ways that you can support their mission as well by visiting OneGirlCan.com.
