Imagine you’re a 12-year-old girl in rural Africa

You went to primary school, loved your lessons, and enjoyed playing with your classmates. But when it was time to go to secondary school you were forced to drop out. Your parents did not have money for school fees, food, uniforms, or transport.

Our goal

Our main goal is to providing girls with long-term support. Successfully supporting an individual means investing in the structures that support her,enabling her to learn,succeed and lead change.

Our partner communities are among the most deprived in the region – far removed from hospitals, lacking public infrastructure, and often situated on the poorest land. They have the greatest levels of poverty within their countries, and suffer some of the highest rates of illness, including HIV/AIDS. They have extremely low literacy rates. Most people live a hand to mouth existence.

Schools in these communities are fewer in number, meaning children often have to walk very long distances to get to school, and have fewer teachers and less equipment. Girls are particularly vulnerable in these circumstances, and their education has the most transformative impact.

We track and measure the impact of our work through rigorous monitoring and evaluation, longitudinal surveys, and in-depth research

Because of our long-term support for girls through school and into independent adulthood, Cxage girls has a unique opportunity to track the economic and social impact of investing in girls’ education and young women’s leadership – on individuals, as well as on communities, and beyond.
