Paper Crown nurtures the personal and professional development of girls and young women using the power of participatory education and mentoring.

Paper Crown provides secondary school girls with a solid foundation in gender and leadership education as it relates to their lived realities. Our approach fosters personal confidence, critical thinking and practical life skills, reinforced by hands-on community improvement projects driven by the girls themselves.

To complement this approach and ensure sustainability, we also work to engage men and boys in the fight to end gender discrimination and gender-based violence, as well as conduct gender-related research to better inform our own work and international dialogues about gender issues in the 21st century.
