School and Community Partners
In the US, our programs serve over 120 girls of color in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. We currently partner with:
Ascend Public Charter School System, Brooklyn, NY
Overbrook Education Center, Philadelphia, PA
Friendship Public Charter Schools, Washington, DC.
Our partner schools are all located in low-income, urban communities with student populations that are predominantly Black and Brown.
In Africa, our programs serve 35 girls in 3rd through 6th grades from local community schools:
Prince Dan Academy, Kajatdo Town, Kenya
Ashaley Botwe Sowa Din Cluster of Schools, Madina, Ghana
Our education team was recently selected by the Smithsonian Science Education Center to participate in their 18-month Zero Barriers in STEM Education: Accessibility and Inclusion program which offers educators support in designing enriching, equity-based STEM experiences for all students, especially students with disabilities.
