“I was just 8 years old when my parents died. My relatives took care of me but unfortunately, I got pregnant in class 8 and dropped out of school before the final examination. I got married but by the grace of God through FAWE, I joined form one at Kitmikai Day Secondary School in Kisumu.

Due to the complexity of gender constraints to female education, efforts to advance girls' education cannot be undertaken in isolation. There is need for sustained advocacy at the global, regional, national and community levels.

Over the years, we have built awareness and consensus on the social and economic advantages of girls' education through our advocacy work.

Our advocacy activities include:

  • Influencing the integration of gender into national education policies and plans
  • .
  • Sensitising parents and communities on the importance of girls' education.
  • Reinforcing the girls’ education campaign through strategic partnerships with education stakeholders.
  • Contributing to global debates and advocacy campaigns on education and gender.
