One Girl Can

Our mission is to empower girls through education, to break the cycle of poverty and gender imbalance in sub-Saharan Africa.

We Build

We have been building and rehabilitate existing schools for girls in rural Kenya and Uganda. Since 2008, we are committed to long-term partnerships that ensure the school’s infrastructure will continue to support their growth and maintain safe and enriching learning environments.

We Educate

We provide scholarships for girls with the greatest need and potential in sub-Saharan Africa. Our scholarship program started in 2013 with just 2 girls. Today, we have 190 girls on scholarships. Our goal is to reach 1000 by 2025.

We Mentor

One Girl Can mentors every student at the schools in which we are involved by teaching goal setting, confidence building, strategic thinking and career planning. Through a series of 3 workshops (Empower Me, I Want to Be, and I Will Be), girls are motivated, empowered, and equipped to create a path to their success.
