Girls are the greatest untapped resource for social and economic growth in Rwanda. When you invest in girls it starts a ripple effect of change—for her, her community, and her country. That’s the girl effect.Girl Hub Rwanda is a strategic collaboration between the Nike Foundation and DFID to scale the girl effect in Rwanda. We are not an implementer, we’re a catalyst. We work across four fronts—research and insights, social communications, cultivating innovation, and influence—to develop sustainable solutions that deliver for girls. Ultimately, Girl Hub and our partners will enable all of Rwanda’s 1 million teen girls to fulfill their potential to realize Rwanda’s Vision 2020.
