Girls Education – Lifting Girls Out Of Poverty

Women in leadership is a major agenda within Manasprings, so empowering young women to become leaders in their chosen career is vitally important to Manasprings. Educating Kenyan girls to realise their full potential is worthy of our efforts, especially when we understand that girls and women suffer such inequalities, including gender disparities within education and leadership.

Still to this day, girls belonging to some tribal groups in Kenya are forced into early child marriage, undergo female genital mutilation, and simply miss too many school days because of gender inequality. Girls education is crucial in breaking down barriers that stop them from realising their human potential, and is vital to eradicating poverty

University studies and vocational training are out of reach for many Kenyan girls, so please join us in helping to make further education a reality for them. Education empowers. Education encourages. Education opens doors to brighter futures.

“When you educate a girl, you are lifting an entire society.” 

You can help by donating to the Manasprings Girls Education initiative.
