2022 UNESCO Prize for Girls’ and Women’s Education

Congratulations, GLAMI!


On October 11, 2022, the International Day of the Girl, AfricAid’s sister organization, GLAMI, received the 2022 UNESCO Prize for Girls’ and Women’s Education. GLAMI was honored at a ceremony at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, which was followed by a panel discussion with prize laureates on the theme ‘Her rights, our future: Transforming girls’ and women’s education.’


This tremendous honor for our partner began 20 years ago, with the simple desire of AfricAid’s 16-year-old founder to help girls her own age secure educational opportunities. Today, after two decades of partnership, trust, hard work, and dedication, GLAMI’s mentoring programs, supported by AfricAid, are helping more girls transform their own futures – and are now winning global awards! The AfricAid/GLAMI story is one of true partnership and is something to celebrate. This programming is possible thanks to donations from generous individuals like you.


Donate now to expand these programs to more girls in 2023.


“The NGO [GLAMI] has been awarded the prize for its work helping adolescent girls to safely transition between education levels, complete their education, and develop into confident members of their communities through two flagship programmes.” – UNESCO
