In partnership with the community we serve, and in hand with others who enrich our efforts with their expertise and resources, the Girls Education Collaborative is helping to create environments where girls have the opportunity to realize their potential and through that realization, change their worlds.
Working in underserved rural areas in developing countries, we bring together local and global participants around grass roots, community driven projects where girls education is at the core. Bridging artificial boundaries to best address the needs of adolescent girls, we advance a holistic approach to address the inter-connected needs of the most marginalized girls and their communities – such as health, public infrastructure, agriculture and community development.
Our Collaborative acts like a portal – connecting resources and expertise to communities where it is currently difficult to access such assets. We leverage partnerships that link the expertise and resources of a variety of players, such as NGOs, individual citizens and institutions of higher learning to community-driven projects as a way to enhance and accelerate change.
Our intent is to be resourceful, nimble and creative; to make connections, to gather and coordinate resources in response to community-identified needs – to be collaborative. We are on the ground, with our partners, making it happen.
