Hello Queens!

Hi Queens! Happy New Month! Thank you so much for your support over the last couple of months! I started Afro after sitting on a panel that made me realize that we, as Africans, have a long way to go in the world of gender inclusivity. I realized that tradition, while important in our culture, can unfortunately be a major hindrance in the growth of African women and girls, everywhere. I figured that if we can impact the way that women think about our role in creating impact on the continent and provide access to quality education for the 52 million girls out of primary and secondary school in Africa, we can truly end poverty, (literally and mentally) and change the narrative of Africa in a positive way. Afro celebrates excellence, education and entrepreneurship for African women and girls. Our impact workshops encourage goal setting, entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship for both women and girls; Our website features real curated content for us, by us; and our education partnerships with schools and organizations across Africa help us achieve #SDG4 for girls. We are currently partnered with One Girl Can, Malaika and Nurturing Minds SEGA who are positively impacting the lives of girls in Kenya, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Tanzania, respectively. We are looking to partner with even more schools, organizations and brands to achieve our goals. Honestly, Afro is just a part of the conversation. If we plan on empowering each other to build a better Africa, then we have to empower our men to respect empowered women or the cycle will continue. Thank you for joining us on this journey. #AfroGirlMagic p.s I have no idea what is going on in this photo😂 xo Toks
