Educating girls is the key to breaking systems of poverty and inequality.
Yet, 130 million girls are not in school around the world, with a majority of them in sub-Saharan Africa.
How S H E is helping 1,500 girls get their education this year?
It starts with a school uniform... That grows
Notsé, Togo, West Africa
Our program launched in 2017 in Notse, Togo, Africa, a country where girls spend an average of just 2 - 3 years in school, and just 33% of girls go to junior high school.
A required school uniform is the largest financial barrier keeping girls out of school in Togo and in many countries around the world.
To address this problem, S H E designed the world's only school uniform that grows so girls can wear their uniforms confidently for up to 3 years! Every girl receives a new school uniform as part of her sponsorship at S H E.
how our girls' education programs have grown
What started with school uniforms has evolved into a holistic girls' education program serving 1,500 girls annually in kindergarten through high school. Every girl at S H E receives:
S H E uniform that grows
Reusable menstrual supplies
skills training and tutoring
year-round support from our local team
