Mission Statement

The Advancement of Girls' Education (AGE) was founded in 2005. The mission is to provide secondary school scholarships, mentoring, and leadership training so that girls in rural villages in Malawi can continue their education.

Description

AGE employs a four-tiered approach to improve educational opportunities for disadvantaged, often HIV/AIDS-affected and vulnerable girls in rural Malawi.

1. Supporting the Girls: AGE provides scholarships, mentoring and leadership training to 17 girls. This approach offers girls financial and moral support and empowers them to complete their secondary education and become leaders in their communities.

2. Mobilizing Community Resources: AGE works with communities to promote the value of girls' education. This community support is critical for ensuring the girls' success and that of future generations.

3. Advocating for Systemic Change: AGE promotes policy interventions to improve the conditions for all secondary school girls. AGE aims to effect systemic change in Malawi and to create a model for girls' secondary education in Africa.

4. Building Awareness: AGE publishes articles and newsletters and engages civic groups to broadcast the challenges the scholars face and encourage active public interest and support for improving educational opportunities for girls.
