We envision a world where Black girls from all socio-economic backgrounds and cultures believe in themselves, have access to quality education and fiercely pursue opportunities that allow them to fulfill their limitless potential. Our work, though customized to cater to the girls in the regions that we serve, reflect our vision tried and true.

AFRO GIRLS LEAD

52 million girls across Africa are not getting the proper education that they deserve. Here's how we are changing this narrative.

LIMITLESS POTENTIAL

Our initiatives and projects currently build community and provide access to quality education for girls across Africa and the United States. Afro Girls began as a youth development project and grew into a space for girls to fulfill their limitless potential in 2018. Since 2011, we've impacted over 500 girls.

Our efforts aim to provide the necessary resources to ensure wholistic, inclusive, relevant and effective learning outcomes for our girls.

Effective action is at the core of the work that we do. We recognize the organizations creating impact and promote these skills within our girls.

We work to increase young women’s representation and participation in results-driven decision-making processes.

Our enrichment activities foster mentorship, spark creative thinking, entrepreneurship and

problem-solving skills.

AFRO VOICES

2020 has forced us all to re-evaluate our impact. We are committed to the same vision for Afro Girls, but we've updated our mission to reflect the work that we have done for 10+ years.

52 million girls across Africa are not getting the proper education that they deserve. Here's our open letter to our future women, leaders and changemakers.
