We see so many reasons for optimism...
Raising knowledge and income in rural communities
1,000 girls safe in dormitories built by Lyra with local communities since 2011 – Lyra's goal is to reach 5,000 girls.
Average savings have tripled. We want to help farmers do the same for their yields.
Fast tracking learning through new technology.
We invest in girls' education. Because every girl deserves to be in school. And educated girls create prosperous communities, through smaller, better educated families.
We build community enterprise through finance, business training, and livestock. So that families have enough income to feed and educate their children.
Youngest Lyra supporters raise funds for girls’ education
We’re proud of how much the young people have already achieved and are thrilled to have secured new grants to expand the programme.
Sayuni was one of the first girls to stay in the Lundamatwe hostel and is now teaching other young people in her community to start businesses.
