10,000 girls - Senegal entrepreneurship & education

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The 10,000 Girls program provides girls in the villages of Senegal with the tools to succeed. The program has two interdependent components: education and entrepreneurship.


The education program supports girls at risk of leaving school early by
  • purchasing textbooks and providing tutoring and space in which to study
  • monitoring school progress
  • encouraging parents to support their daughters' education

Bottom line

10,000 Girls is
  • self-supporting through the girls' own work
  • sustainable as it grows
  • capable of scaling to the needs of the region
  • supported by the local communities
