Why Girls?

Educate, Empower, Equip.

Studies show that girls who are educated earn higher salaries

and sending more girls to school and into the workforce can

10 to 20 percent more for each additional year of secondary school

boost an entire country's GDP.


Educated girls also marry later,

have lower rates of infant and maternal mortality

and are more likely to immunize their children

and less likely to contract malaria and HIV.


Girls who are educated earn higher salaries 10 to 20% more for each additional year of secondary school. Mfariji Beauty & Brains scholarship fund embodies the notion that when a girl sets her mind to something, she is unstoppable.


Mentoring has proven to increase confidence, make girls feel valued and allowed them to believe in their self-worth. Mfariji Mentorship clubs empower at-risk girls to look beyond their current situation and imagine a successful future.


850,000 Girls in Kenya miss school 5 to 6 days every month during menstruation because they
cannot afford sanitary pads. Our Sanitary Sanity Campaign program supplies girls with annual packs of sanitary pads to save school days for girls.
