When One Girl Can started by building schools and providing scholarships, it was quickly identified that it wasn’t enough. As we began interacting with the girls at our schools, we realized no one had ever even asked them what they want to be.
For many girls in sub-Saharan Africa, their future is predetermined from birth. They will remain trapped in the cycle of poverty; marrying young, rearing children and working 15-18 hours a day, often as a single parent.
Through education, coaching and mentoring, we can help these girls realize that an alternative future is possible. Our workshops teach girls how to create a vision for the life they want to live, how to develop a plan to achieve this, and to execute the plan every day to begin moving their lives forward.
High School Mentorship Program
We’ve developed a program that starts from the first year of high school that introduces creating a vision and goal setting to their graduation year that sets them up for thinking about their goals through university and beyond.
University Mentorship Program
Having participated through the high school program, our girls are equipped with the foundation of success for university. We hold an annual conference that furthers their actionable goals and turns them into tactics to build success after school.
Our volunteer team of successful Kenyan women travel to our rural schools to coach the girls in our program. They share their own to inspire, motivate and guide the girls so they can fulfil their own potential.
