About Us

Advancing Girls’ Education in Africa’s mission is to provide life-changing opportunities for young women in Malawi through targeted initiatives in education, mentoring, and leadership development. Our vision is that all girls in Africa will have equal access to secondary education, and that young scholars will be empowered to finish school, leverage their educations into viable opportunities for earned income, and have the tools they need to self-advocate for their own life choices. Since 2005, AGE Africa accomplishes this goal through a combination of educational programs that include scholarships for needy girls to attend secondary school and tertiary education, as well as holistic after school programming in life skills education and career guidance. In Malawi only 6% of women hold a secondary school degree and less than 1% of women hold a university degree, over 90% of AGE Africa participants graduate from secondary and more than half move on to college or university, and AGE Africa scholars are more than likely to be the first in their families to attend and complete secondary school, and move on to university.
