Communities know best.
We believe firmly in working with local organizations and teams, because they know best what their communities need. STF Partners have been fully vetted for solid financials, programs, and values.
STF Partners provide a nuanced, community-based approach to their interventions. This means that while each STF Scholar may have a slightly different educational experience, each is equipped with the skills she needs to survive and thrive in her environment.
We invest in locally-led leadership with a multi-pronged approach:
Flexible funding to strengthen girls' programs
Capacity-building assistance to report impact and troubleshoot obstacles
Direct training at our annual Girls First conference in East Africa
Knowledge sharing year-round through an online hub
