WE CELEBRATE BLACK GIRLS, EVERYWHERE.
Know your worth, then lead with it.
We celebrate their worth, their stories and their dreams.
Our dedication to education and inspiring our girls, everywhere, through Afro Girls Lead is 10+ years strong. We've evolved overtime, but the heart of our work remains the same: celebrate Black girls around the world, for who they are.
We envision a world where girls from all socio-economic backgrounds and cultures believe in themselves, know their worth, have access to quality education and fiercely pursue opportunities that allow them to fulfill their limitless potential.
OUR 2023 PROGRAMS
We work with remarkable and phenomenal girls, ages 5-17, in different regions of the world.
In 2023, we're taking a new approach to impact:
READ TO LEAD📚
We're partnering with local businesses for our annual free book giveaway for girls ages 5-12 through our sister org, Afro Girls Read. When our girls see themselves in stories written about girls like them, by women (and sometimes girls) like them, they see a world of endless possibilities. We want girls to see and celebrate their stories.
LEAD WITH STEAM🔬
We're invested in creating new experiences for our girls through science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) focused education. Our annual programs for girls ages 5-12 will center around STEAM activities with industry experts. We want our girls to build confidence in spaces where they have been traditionally underrepresented.
We're hosting annual
gatherings for girls ages 13-17 where they talk and we listen. We celebrate the work that these girls are doing for just being themselves. Our gatherings will also include licensed professionals, community leaders, influencers and mentors.
OUR MEASURE OF SUCCESS
Girls today, leaders tomorrow.
We recognize our responsibility to uplift our girls everywhere. Our goal is to support 100,000 girls by 2030. We're doing this with support from our partners and kind people like you.
Our partners go the distance. We are committed to promoting and investing in schools and organizations who are doing the groundwork to advocate for girls and advance girls education. Our partners currently positively impact girls and communities in the US, Nigeria, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania. Our work has also been recognized by various change makers and we've worked with global organizations who are working to end poverty around the world by 2030, with longterm goals for 2063 in Africa.
