Join us for a dynamic dialogue with those “on the ground” creating freedom for girls in rural communities in East Africa. The challenges these girls face, including cultural bias, limited access to opportunities, and gender inequality, hamper their chances for personal and economic development. Our panelists, leaders who work with girls in East Africa and around the world, will share their perspectives and discuss best practices designing programs that value and empower girls.
