The Power of Empowering Girls
The World Bank has found a correlation between girls withdrawing from school child marriage and early childbearing. Therefore, the World Bank posits that “keeping girls in schools significantly reduces the risk of child marriage and early childbearing.”*
Educated and self-aware young women who are able to make healthy life choices leverage their educations into viable opportunities for earned income and self-advocate for their own life choices. AGE Africa graduates help to catalyze change for young women nationwide through our three areas of impact: scholarships, life-skills programming, and transition support.
