Advancing Girls’ Education in Africa

Educates impoverished girls, mostly orphans, through school scholarships in Malawi, East Africa. Provides innovative after-school leadership and school-to-work programs to ensure success and change lives.

Advancing Girls Eduication in Africa Advancing Girls’ Education in Africa (AGE Africa) provides life-changing opportunities to young women in Malawi through education, mentoring, and leadership development.

Our vision is that all girls in Africa will have equal access to secondary education, and that young women will be empowered to finish school, leverage their educations into viable opportunities for earned income, and have the tools they need to stand up for their own life choices.

In the short-term AGE Africa’s goal is to graduate talented, disadvantaged young women who are equipped with the knowledge, resources, and self-confidence they need to make healthy and informed choices about their futures.

Immaculate, an HIV/AIDS orphan and AGE Africa-sponsored student, is one of those young women. Upon graduation she said, “When I go to college, I want to focus on studying about food, nutrition, and economics. I want to travel around Africa to educate the communities about proper health. The hunger and HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa inspired me to follow that path.”

In the long-term AGE Africa seeks to increase the number of girls like Immaculate who attend and succeed in public school nationwide by providing a model for girls’ achievement and retention that can be replicated throughout the country.
