Who we are

We are a team of change-makers who believe that every helping hand can raise a girl and create a better future for them.

Let Girls Learn Initiative is a feminist non-governmental organization registered in Kenya. We work to enhance adolescent girls and young women’s access to quality education by addressing their sexual and reproductive health needs. Let Girls Learn Initiative recognizes the unique and systemic challenges affecting girls’ access to education in Kenya. Gender inequality, poverty, discrimination as well as and socio-cultural norms impede girls and young women from access to education. Let Girls Learn Initiative works directly with communities, girls’ parents, caregivers, health care service providers, and governments at all levels to create a sustainable ecosystem for girls and young women.

Our Core Pillars

Access to Education

We believe that all girls have an inalienable right to access education. This pillar focuses on advocacy to ensure all girls access education. We aim to provide safe access to schools for girls and address the unique contextual challenges that affect their access to education. Educated girls are the foundation of communities and are able to make better choices for themselves, build stronger economies and communities. Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for girls and young women. When girls are educated, they lead to healthier and more productive lives. They gain the skills, knowledge, and self-confidence to escape the cycle of poverty.

Raising a Feminist Generation

This is at the core of LGLI’s advocacy. We believe that girls and young women represent boundless possibilities and enormous talent to build a better future for the world. But to truly harness that power, we need to listen to them because they have to power to realize gender equality.

Empowering Adolescent Girls

Our programmes are young women led and their voices matter to us. We believe that interventions for girls and young women are crucial and we seek to hear their perspectives. Our objective is to ensure that we impart self-confidence, mentorship for young women and to provide a safe space o ensure they participate actively in all our interventions.

Get Involved

COVID 19 has had a tremendous impact on girls’ and young women in Kenya. In 2020, Reuters reported the rise of teenage pregnancies as a result of the lockdown Kenya. Many girls and young women were unable to access education, sexual and reproductive health rights services and information and many experienced sexual violence as a result of the stress from parents driven by economic challenges due to loss of jobs. Let Girls Learn Initiative partnered with Feminists in Kenya to provide toll free psycho socio support to young women and adult women. We were happy that our counsellor provided support to over 1000 women during the period of the lock down. We also linked young women with NGOs across Kenya who could provide immediate support.
