Advancing Girls' Education in Africa: AGE Africa
AGE Africa’s mission is to provide life-changing opportunities for young women in Malawi through targeted initiatives in education, mentoring, and leadership development. Our vision is that all girls in Africa will have equal access to secondary education, and that young scholars will be empowered to finish school, leverage their educations into viable opportunities for earned income, and have the tools they need to self-advocate for their own life choices. AGE Africa supports the education, sexual and reproductive health programs, and leadership development of over 700 Malawian girls at 22 secondary schools. Although in Malawi less than 6% of women hold a high school diploma, nearly 90% of AGE Africa’s students complete high school and 64% go on to higher education.
