WHAT IF EVERY GIRL COULD FINISH SCHOOL AND LIVE HER LIFE TO THE FULLEST?

One in five adolescent girls leaves her teens as a mother

In Kenya, teens experiencing

COVID-related containment had twice the risk of pregnancy

and were three times more likely to drop out of school

How do we support a population of teenage mothers and reconnect them with their youth?

Unwanted pregnancies are not the only concerns for Kenyan youth

A third of all new HIV infections are among women aged 15-24

mental health

How do we restore the mental health of Kenyan youth and cultivate empathy throught the HIV epidemic?

Too often girls are scared to seek health services for fear of judgement, or are misinformed about side effects from contraception and HIV treatment.

Despite decades of investment into interventions to reach adolescent girls with contraception and HIV services, uptake of services remains low.

Through our digital platform, we know where every cent goes. Track your impact every day with real-time reports, data-driven insights, and on-the-ground partnerships.

what we offer icon

WE ARE BRINGING THE EFFICIENCY OF OUR MODEL TO THE PUBLIC SECTOR

Through our partnership with the Kenyan government, we are paving the way for counties to subsidise these health services themselves. We already have financial commitments from 10 counties towards seeing this happen in line with Kenya's move towards Universal Health Coverage.

LET’S REVOLUTIONISE HEALTHCARE FOR GIRLS, TOGETHER.

MEASURE EACH MOMENT OF IMPACT WITH A DEVELOPMENT IMPACT BOND

INVESTOR

Provides upfront funding for the service provider

SERVICE PROVIDER

Works with beneficiaries to achieve outcomes

BENEFICIARIES

OUTCOME PAYER

Identifies beneficiaries, defines payable outcomes, pays for achieved outcomes

A DIB is an outcomes-driven investment that measures impact in pre-defined terms.

Often labelled a pay-for-success strategy, impact bonds deliver return on investment over time. If the project is successful, investors are paid out a return by funders for their investment.

This is our opportunity to address critical issues with precise, cost-effective, and tested tools.
