Mission of Impact Network International
Impact Network is transforming lives in rural Africa with education and innovation.

Impact empowers and uplifts rural girls and young women in Zambia with an approach that addresses the critical challenges they face. Impact Girls is committed to addressing issues such as limited agency in decisions regarding health, as well as the scarcity of essential menstrual health hygiene materials and knowledge. Additionally, the grant aims to create economic opportunities for rural African communities. The project will support key components of the Impact Girls Program, benefiting over 3,000 girls and women, including Menstrual Health Workshops, GLOW Clubs (Girls Leading Our World Clubs), NetGirls Zambia League, Financial Literacy for Women, Female Mentor Program, and more.

Why We Love This
We love this project because it is community led and driven. The workers are Zambian, so they have lived experiences of what is needed to make the work succeed. Impact Network currently runs 40 schools, an impressive accomplishment since its inception in 2008.
