THE BIG SMILE FOUNDATION ensure Girls access quality, safe education and continues education as school is a space in which girls exercise their agency, make their voice heard, and access their first leadership opportunities. Being out of school doesn’t just have devastating consequences for girls’ life opportunities – it places them at risk of teen pregnancy, child marriage, female genital mutilation and other forms of gender-based violence.
