Girls Impacted


Our Mission

Our Mission is to inspire girls and women to excel in technology careers.

Our Vision

We envision an African world where women are proportionally represented as technical leaders

Pearls Africa Youth Foundation
An NGO based in Lagos Nigeria that promotes the cause and advancement of vulnerable young girls and women for the purpose of economic independence

Why Pearls Africa?


Through our projects: Girls-Coding, Empowered Hands, GirlsInSTEM and GC Mentors, we help each girl acquire functional skills, thereby achieving economic independence before the age of 18. We believe there is a link between the amount of empowerment (either in education or training) a girl receives and her long-term ability to participate in the economy. By empowering a girl, we empower a family and an entire community benefits as a result. As empowered girls become women, they become capable of transforming local communities and add even more to the world’s economic prosperity.


Creating architecture for change in underserved communities through process reform

Pearls Africa received a CNN Hero award in 2018 for her GirlsCoding project

GC Mentors

Social skills, such as communication, teamwork, and leadership, enable girls to build relationships, work effectively with others, and advocate for themselves, are crucial for young girls to succeed and reach their full potential. When combined with technology skills, girls in underserved communities have the tools they need to succeed and overcome barriers, helping to break the cycle of poverty and inequality. By investing in their education and development, we can create a brighter future for girls, their communities, and the world.
