Forbes Article Highlights Asante Africa Foundation’s Work in Girls’ Education
In early March of 2021, Asante Africa Foundation and three other girls’ education organizations operating in rural Africa, were awarded a $3 million grant, $750,000 per organization, from Jack Dorsey’s #StartSmall Initiative to fund their joint efforts to educate girls in remote villages across Africa. This grant is helping Asante Africa to scale the Wezesha Vijana (Girls’ Advancement) Program, enabling more girls to continue their education through and beyond the Covid-19 crisis.
