Afro Girls | Girls Education and Leadership

We envision a world where 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.


52 million girls across Africa are not getting the proper education that they deserve and colorism has become a major challenge affecting effective living. Here's how we are changing this narrative.

Our initiatives and projects currently build community and provide access to quality education for girls across Africa and the United States. Our recent research and future partnerships in the United Kingdom seek to positively impact education for our girls in the UK. 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.

Inspired by former first lady of the United States Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn, our new campaign, Let Girls Lead, is a call to action for the advancement of quality and culturally inclusive girls education through effective leadership - from both influencers of change and girls themselves.

Speak up for humanity - take the pledge and make a comittment to supporting girls.
