Our mentors

Slider

Meet our volunteer team of successful Kenyan women acting as our Advisory Board in Kenya. Each of these women is passionate and dedicated to provide valuable insights and connections to their world. They travel to our rural schools to coach and mentor the girls in our program. They share their own stories of struggle and success to inspire, motivate and guide the girls so they can fulfil their own potential.

"I am from a minority called the Maasai. My childhood was full of challenges and I sometimes wonder if my life would have been different with guidance and support. I wish to offer mentorship to girls facing similar obstacles."

"Educating one girl is educating a whole family, a whole village, a whole community! Knowledge is the strongest weapon girls have to conquer this complex world."

"Working with the rural communities in Kenya, I've seen girls dropping out of school at a young age to get married due to poverty. I was inspired to be a mentor with One Girl Can because I felt I had an opportunity to reach these young women."

Program Coordinator

Goodie
"We have been conditioned to think that being female we are a lesser breed of humanity. My hope is that through education more girls will feel brave to step out into previously unchartered waters and excel, without intimidation."

"There has always been a belief that the girl child should be second to the boy child and this breaks my heart. I want every girl to know that they are full of potential and once their potential is fully utilized they will make a difference in the world."

Vivianne
"In a future where every girl is given an education, she will be empowered to make a difference in her community. That will build this nation to heights we never imagined."
