the opportunity:

Women make up 55% of our programs and we hope to grow our investment through these four powerful initiatives:

1. univ leadership program

Education prevents poverty. Less than 3% of women in Sub-Saharan Africa attend University. Let’s change this.

2. the accelerate academy

Business is the key to African prosperity. Let’s ensure more women can start, fund, and scale a business.

3. women's mentorship

We are matching 4th year students with 1st year students to help women navigate University and beyond.

4. usa internship program

We are helping our brightest graduates secure internships at top companies throughout America.

why you should invest in women

Education prevents poverty, yet less than 3% of African women attend University compared to 60% in the Global North.

African female University graduates earn 48% more income than girls who only graduated from High School.

Upon receiving income, African women reinvest 90% of it into their families and communities.

Educated girls have fewer and healthier babies. One year of formal education can result in a 10% decrease in fertility, giving smaller families the opportunity to thrive.
