Mission and Vision

Our purpose
We are our region’s leading voice for the education and empowerment of girls and young women. In collaboration with girls’ schools and key partners, we strive for a world where women make a difference in new and impactful ways, promoting inclusion and enhancing society.

Our mission
To advocate for and support the distinctive work of girls’ schools in their provision of unparalleled opportunities for girls and young women.

Our key principles
The work and direction of the Alliance is shaped by four key principles. Any initiative undertaken must contribute to achieving/satisfying these key principles

Inspiring girls: Our work inspires girls and young women to feel a positive sense of agency, to be unafraid to stretch beyond their comfort zone and be motivated to lead and determine their own future.

Challenging convention: Our work critically questions social archetypes and conventions, providing evidence and insight that enables girls and young women to challenge traditional stereotypes and expectations in the ambitious pursuit of their goals and a more inclusive society.

Creating opportunities: Our work provides girls, young women and their educators with a range of experiences, skills, tools and knowledge that open their hearts and minds to new ideas and ways in which to make a difference.

Harnessing voices: Our work brings together the voices of many, advocating the case for girls’ schools and enabling the needs of girls and young women to be heard clearly in society as a platform for positive change.
