Come and hear CEO and Founder, Lotte Davis, talk about her life-long mission to eradicate poverty and promote gender equality in some of the most disadvantaged areas in Africa. See why empowering girls through education is essential to this mission, and how One Girl Can is changing lives in incredible ways.
Last year we raised over $200,000 to build dormitories and washroom facilities in a girls’ school in Kenya and provide scholarships for girls in high school. This year we need your help to build and equip 2 science labs in an effort to promote essential learning in the notoriously male-dominated fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics! STEM education has been directly linked to economic growth and it is estimated that 80% of jobs created in the next decade will require some form of STEM skills. Theory training in science and technology is common practice in most African secondary schools, and students have little to show when it comes to practical application. One Girl Can wants to equip girls to succeed by giving them the level of hands-on experience that is required to enter the job market or pursue higher education in STEM subjects.
