Our success so far

Since inception, Life Lifters has been instrumental in building the capacity of girls through mentorship. We started in 2015 as a girls group that met to discuss the vices that affected us in the community and have since grown to be a supporter of women and girls education

Girls mentored since inception
Scholarships awarded
Girls Educate

This is a scholarship program that pairs donors with smart underprivileged girls in rural Kenya. The donors directly fund tuition for a girl in Kenya which costs approximately $700-900 a year. Our organization will constantly update you on the wellbeing, performance and status of the girl you support

Africa Girls Education Investment Fund

This a long-term investment fund into Girls Education in Africa. This model takes the donations contributed into the fund and puts them to work to generate more funds to support our girls. The fund enables our donors to have a continued impact on the lives of the girls that we support

Invest in Girls

Help us fund training and conferences for our girls. Your donation provides underserved girls with the support and opportunities they need. Without education and these opportunities, most girls in the communities we serve will continue to sink deeper into poverty and abuse


Our Training Pillars

Life Lifters offers the girls and women incubated into our programs with an opportunity to groom and equip themselves for the future. Our long-term goal is to build them up to be able to access productive resources in their communities and use them to transform their lives. To succeed in doing this, Life Lifters focuses on three major training areas:



The second pillar of our work. In this pillar we introduce girls to experiential leadership. We take our girls and women on a leadership journey that helps them to be influential in their families, schools and communities. They learn about leadership of self, servant leadership and all the qualities and skills that they need to have to be great leaders



This is the first pillar of our work. Life Lifters builds the capacity of the women and girls we work with. Drawing from their personal experiences, stories and dreams, Life Lifters engages successful women mentors who train, mentor and empower our girls. Strategic partnerships with other organizations, companies and initiatives are also established to ensure that our girls are exposed to all relevant and diverse opportunities


Entrepreneurship Training

In this pillar we teach women and girls how to identify productive resources, tap into the economic world and explore entrepreneurial opportunities in their communities. Borrowing from concepts like design thinking, research and business development, Life Lifters invests time and resources in building the economic capacity of women and girls



An experiential program that hopes to build the confidence, tenacity and self-esteem of women and girls who join our organization. Our organization believes in the power of stories and as such we help our girls discover who they are by connecting to their experiences

from the Founder

I founded Life Lifters Kenya in 2014 right after I graduated from high school. At the time I was just a 19 year old girl who wanted a better world for girls in my community. As a girl and now a young woman I have always wanted to build an ecosystem that encourages women and girls to succeed. I envision a world where girls and women, especially those in rural communities in Africa, have access to resources that can help them unleash their full potential. I believe education and entrepreneurship are two powerful tools for women liberation and that is why at Life Lifters we invest in Girls education and business. If girls and women unleash their mental capacity and become comfortable with creating wealth then the sky is no longer the limit
