We promote and advance girl’s education through “Learning Beyond The Classroom Initiative”

Girls are empowered for academic success, social skills and leadership skills through character building and mentoring that leads to independent responsible young women.

To meet this need and bridge the gap, the organization provides secondary schools in the community meaningful assistance through “Learning Beyond the Classroom Initiative” which has three programs:

  1. Co-curricular School Program (Girls club)
  2. Summer Leadership Program and
  3. Scholarship Scheme

Co-Curricular School-Based Program

The Girl’s club is a socio-academic club that is student-centred and focused. It is a dynamic opportunity designed to support the development of character building that leads to academic success, a positive self-image and the development of young women in order to foster a sense of empowerment in them. We believe our girls need to be taught what authentic character is, before, they can identify unacceptable behaviour. Co-Curricular School Program life-cycle is 3 years. This is a school mentoring program that runs weekly throughout the academic year.

Summer Leadership Camp

The Summer Leadership Camp program is geared towards the following objectives:

This is a program that runs during the summer holiday for four weeks and it is geared towards the following objectives;

  • empowering public school girls and bridging the gap between their private school counterparts
  • make summer holidays valuable to students thus positively impacting the girls within the community. Summer time is a time when students are at risk of engaging in unsafe activities. Most of these students are left unsupervised by parents who are  having their own economic challenges
  • The essence of Camp:
  • Girls acquire the broad range of academic, social and emotional skills to equip them for success
  • Have structured opportunities for enriching experiences in a safe environment
  • Provide a safe environment for the girls and lead them away from roaming the streets and exposing themselves to danger and unsafe activities
