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.
