We know that academic success is the route to a better future for our young African women and girls. Parents expect good results, and girls need them if they are going to get places in the schools and courses they want.
Did you know that not everyone learns in the same way? Helping each girl to understand her study habits allows her to identify her strengths and address her weaknesses.
Helping Young Women to Discover their Learning Habits
Every young woman or girl learns differently, even if our African schools do not always have the capacity to recognise this.
