About the Hamsa Center
In Niger, only 9% of girls continue school after 6th grade. The number of girls who matriculate to high school and college is even smaller, and 75% of girls marry early. The goal of the Hamsa Center is to reverse these statistics through a quality, gender-sensitive education by providing adolescent girls the support, life skills and resources needed to become leaders.
Situated in the heart of the Tahoua region, the Hamsa Center will be the only all-girls middle and high school with wrap-around services for out-of-school adolescent girls. The Center provides a culturally sensitive, yet progressive array of programs that include tutoring for exam remediation and advancement, mentoring, technology instruction, retraining skills, and scholarships for vulnerable students.
