Our Partners

As a membership organisation, we strongly believe in working through partnerships for long-term sustainability and continuous shared learning. We are strongly committed to promote partnerships as we consolidate our role of convening the organizations working in promotion of girls’ education in order to foster synergy and muster the authority to effectively engage with government.

By partnering with FAWE, you join a unified voice that promoting girls and women’s capabilities is not only a human right, but also a pathway to sustainable development.
