Key Information

Impact(Ed) trains and supports local communities in establishing boys and girls clubs which often provide a ‘foot in the door’ to the school environment leading to increased school attendance. Girls clubs develop life skills with a focus on girls’ agency, self-efficacy, and a growth mindset. These youth clubs have become key to social and emotional learning and academic performance.
