The Girl Impact

The Girl Impact is a collaborative project between The African Impact Foundation and our partner volunteer organization African Impact. Our goal is to support and educate young girls to help them make more informed decisions as they move towards womanhood.

Drawing from the years of development experience that both organizations have in Africa, volunteer projects were set up in three amazing locations: Cape Town, South Africa; Livingstone, Zambia; and Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. These three gender equality volunteer projects aid in the development and education of girls between the ages of 11 and 18; a crucial time when a girl’s future potential and opportunities can flourish through education, learning skills and social support, or be stunted and stifled by the irreversible effects of child marriage, early pregnancy, HIV and other preventable hardships.
