We celebrated International Day of the Girl with our Global Partners in East Africa! Our partners, Kakenya’s Dream and Girl Up Initiative, work to empower women and girls in their communities. Their work addresses longstanding gender inequalities by improving young girls’ access to education and healthcare services. By opening opportunities for social and economic development, child marriage and poverty rates decline, leading to a brighter, more equitable future for the entire community.
During this event, our speakers delved deeper into their impactful work. They shared how they address barriers, enabling young Ugandan and Kenyan women to realize their full potential. Their transformative initiatives include scholarship programs, leadership training, and college and career guidance.
