ETC - Giving every girl a chance

Our mission is to empower girls & young women in East Africa through education & training.


Supporting education and innovation through our values



We don’t seek to impose ideals for what our girls should become, but create new opportunities to be able to empower them with choices, so that they can follow their true calling. We encourage independent, creative thinking – this is the essence of what we do.



We work shoulder to shoulder with the communities we operate in because we believe that this is the most effective way to ensure sustainability. We listen to what they want, and work with them to achieve it.



We encourage our girls to give back to those who are starting their journeys; we want to build a supportive network; we increase our impact and sustainability by doing this.



The number of girls we help is important, but so is the depth and the quality of the impact we make. We strive to transform minds and life situations.



When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90 percent of it into their families, as compared to only 30 to 40 percent for a man.

At least 200 million girls and women worldwide have undergone female genital mutilation. Data from 30 countries in 2015 indicate that more than 1 in 3 girls between 15 and 19 years of age have undergone the procedure.

The likelihood of exclusion from education is most problematic among young women in sub-Saharan Africa, where 49.8 per cent of the female youth population had either no or limited education


Limited educational opportunities for girls and barriers to completing 12 years of education cost countries between $15 trillion and $30 trillion dollars in lost lifetime productivity and earnings

Almost 60% fewer girls would become pregnant under 17 years in sub-Saharan Africa and South and West Asia if they all had a secondary education
