Beyond the Classroom

Our work is about more than just keeping girls in school. It is about building a generation of educated, empowered women through extensive mentorship, life skills training and academic support. We help each girl develop the knowledge and skills necessary to build a better life for herself and her family, sending a powerful ripple effect across the developing world.
