The GET IT GIRL! Initiative 

Helping build northern Kenya's next generation of female leaders

No girl should be denied an education...but in remote northern Kenya factors like early marriage and a lack of resources severely marginalizes girls.


In this region, a lack of opportunity is holding girls back from getting an education and going after their dreams. 


The Get It Girl! Initiative places girls from the vulnerable region of Turkana into secondary boarding schools and universities. 


Join as we help set girls on their journey towards independence, career success and leading the positive change they want to see in their communities.

At the foundation of GIG! is the belief that micro changes can have macro impact. Educating one girl can result in exponential positive change for northern Kenya.


We don't just provide education - our commitment is long-term to solidify each student's lifelong success. 


Our commitment to students:

  • Quality education to ensure success (private boarding school)

  • Completion of secondary school

  • Opportunity to complete university
