Daring Girls (formerly AfricAid)
Denver, Colorado, USA
MissionDaring Girls partners locally to ensure that girls have the knowledge, tools, and mentorship to confidently design their own futures.
Our vision is a world where every girl has the skills, confidence, and savvy to design her own future and dare to become exactly who she wants to be.
What We Do. In partnership with GLAMI (Girls Livelihood and Mentorship Initiative), Daring Girls works to support girls at a key stage in their life where access to mentorship, education, and life skills can transform the trajectory of their futures.
Through two core mentoring programs - which recently earned the 2022 UNESCO Prize for Girls' and Women's Education - we support girls who dare to do something different, who choose to prioritize their education and take control of their futures. Every week, these Scholars show up to learn together in a supportive environment from a successful, university educated woman mentor who exemplifies what they can become. As a result, girls become more resilient, more confident, and more prepared to set and reach their goals.
