Let Girls Lead catalyzes scalable change for girls by investing in visionary leaders and local organizations through leadership development, organizational strengthening, grant-making, and advocacy. Let Girls Lead's innovative model achieves sustainable impacts and systemic change by improving laws, policies, funding, and programs for girls in Africa and Latin America.
Let Girls Lead (LGL) and sister initiatives, Champions for Change (C4C) and Youth Champions Initiative (YCI) drive sustainable impacts and systemic change through leadership development, organizational strengthening, grant-making, and advocacy to improve laws, programs, and funding for women, youth, and girls around the world. C4C advocates for improved Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) in Nigeria. In Kenya, C4C works to prevent and combat Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) among young people through locally-led advocacy. YCI is investing in visionary young champions who will lead the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) movement for the next generation. LGL, C4C, and YCI are based at the Public Health Institute.
