Just released: New research led by Amplify Girls identifies the primary reason girls dropped out after schools re-opened during the pandemic. Their report found that economic precarity leading to transactional s*x for basic goods (such as food, clothing & menstrual hygiene products) and unintended pregnancies was the most common pathway leading to girls’ dropout.

You are an inspiration! Congratulations!
Hongereni wanangu
Anne, thank you so much for your inspiring and informative presentation today on GEC's work in Tanzania on behalf of girls, their communities, and the future. I loved that there were 13-year-old American girls there to hear about some of the challenges facing their African sisters.
Is there any way to order the tshirts you were selling at Malala? They sold out before I could get some!
I am so proud that I have finally been able to meet these wonderful, beautiful, hard-working young ladies. Please consider helping us out to educate not only these girls but the whole world!!
