Career Girls is excited to announce the expansion of our role model video and curricula programming in Rwanda. After a highly successful pilot project in partnership with Starlight Africa, we’re adding two new additional implementing partners – Rwandan Girl Guides and Mothering Across Continents – to reach even more girls across the country.

Career Girls has a global audience with 12 million page views from 232 countries and territories. Our library of 12,000 video clips from 700 diverse and accomplished role models is accessible both online and offline. Using our African role model videos, we worked with Starlight Africa to develop culturally sensitive and relevant curricula.

With a focus on STEM, we present hundreds of careers to help close the imagination gap for girls around the world. We welcome any opportunity to work with implementing partners to bring our role model platform to serve girls everywhere. Learn more about our impact in Rwanda.
