Empower Girls - Support Gender Equality in Zambia


African Impact Foundation is hosting a Gender Equality campaign to keep Zambian girls in school by providing reusable menstrual kits, ongoing guidance workshops that focus on reproductive health, family planning, sex education and body awareness. This campaign helps prevent early marriages, unplanned pregnancies, and child labour.

Gender inequality persists in Zambia. Only 59% of Zambian women are literate, compared to 80% of men. Girls are less likely to attend secondary school, with only 25% of girls completing high school compared to 42% of boys. One of the major contributing factors to these alarming stats is that girls can't afford menstrual pads which keeps them from attending school. Additionally, the lack of reproductive health education leads to early pregnancy and often abuse.


Through our Gender Equality projects, we provide girls with reusable menstrual kits to last up to two years, and ongoing guidance workshops that focus on reproductive health, family planning, sex education and body awareness. By supplying menstrual kits, their school attendance improves, and the drop out rate is significantly reduced. Girls are equipped with the knowledge and support to complete their education and make better family planning decisions.

Long-Term Impact

Over the last 15 years, our Gender Equality projects have hosted a considerable number of girls. Many have completed their education & achieved tertiary qualifications with our support. Our holistic approach ensures that the girl child is supported through her schooling, avoids early marriage and unplanned pregnancies, and becomes employable therefore breaking the cycle of poverty for herself & her family. Additionally, by educating boys we help break gender inequality for future generations.
