AGE Africa’s three-pronged approach enables disadvantaged but academically talented young women to attend and finish secondary school and to pursue opportunities beyond high school by equipping them with all the resources, knowledge, and awareness they need to succeed. Our scholarships, extra-curricular programs, and post-secondary support strategies address the most prevalent causes of drop out.

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.
