Mission

Daring Girls (formerly AfricAid) partners locally to ensure that girls have the knowledge, tools, mentorship, and support to confidently design their own futures. In close partnership with our sister organization, GLAMI (Girls Livelihood and Mentorship Initiative), we support mentorship opportunities that help secondary school girls in Tanzania complete their education, develop into confident leaders, and transform their own lives and their communities.
