At She's the First, we believe that investing in girls begins with the people working with them each and every day. That's why we created the Girls First Network, a knowledge-sharing community for organizations working for and with girls worldwide.


Each year, we host the Girls First Summit, a conference for program staff of STF Partners to come together for new trainings and knowledge sharing. Held in Nairobi, Kenya, this conference is intended to help us grow intentionally in the ways we work for and with girls. If you'd like to attend the 2019 Girls First Summit on behalf of your organization, please fill out our interest form.
