Afro Girls Lead inspires ambitious girls to be leaders, innovators and changemakers through education initiatives. We believe that our girls should be included, represented and supported in matters that affect all girls. 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 work, though customized to cater to the girls in the regions that we serve, reflect our vision tried and true.

Making the world better... one smart girl at a time.
Gone are the days when curious pre-teens and teenagers look to adults for answers. Today, our girls are looking to each other and the internet for answers to what matters to them. We re-designed the Smart Girls app to share encouraging messages, that will build self-worth, encourage self-compassion, promote sisterhood and share resources with tween and teenage girls around the world who are looking for smart answers on their smartphones.
