Every day, girls face barriers to education caused by poverty, cultural norms and practices, poor infrastructure, violence and fragility. Girls’ education is a strategic development priority for RABNI.
RABNI’s commitment. to Girls’ education goes beyond getting girls into school. It is also about ensuring that girls learn and feel safe while in school; have the opportunity to complete all levels of education, acquiring the knowledge and skills to compete in the labor market; gain socio-emotional and life skills necessary to navigate and adapt to a changing world; make decisions about their own lives; and contribute to their communities and the world.
Through social advocacy, connecting with representatives, petitions, volunteering, educating the communities and other events, RABNI advances a positive response from all stakeholders on girls getting enrolled, and staying in school.
RABNI works essentially on training and capacity building for women and girls in vulnerable situations in working-class urban/peri-urban and rural areas. Our programs empower women and girls and provides opportunities for their leadership, such that they are able to participate in decision-making processes that have direct impact on their own survival and wellbeing.
Scholarships & Mentorship
Through strategic partnerships with donors and women professionals we offer scholarships to girls from vulnerable underserved communities and mentoring programs.
