Keeping Girls in School


Poverty is a key reasons girls drop out of school in Uganda. Impoverished families often need their daughters to stay at home and help with the housework or other income-generating activities. Some families have to marry off their young daughters to receive a dowry, which prevents them from continuing their education. Of the girls that stopped attending school, 40% dropped out because of child marriage. We are partnering with like-minded organizations in East Africa to end child marriages. Keeping girls in school SO THEY CAN THRIVE is our top priority. Education is a clear way to create a brighter future for these young women, which also benefits their families and communities. Thank you for joining with us to support this impactful work!
