Batonga in action

Batonga in Action


In choosing the individual girls, schools and communities to receive support, priority is given to the most disadvantaged populations within the target countries.

Batonga girls are typically girls that have been orphaned by AIDS, are disabled, extremely poor, or otherwise disadvantaged yet are driven to succeed despite their circumstances. The vast majority would not be in school without Batonga’s support. These girls have taken on multiple obstacles and personal challenges with enormous spirit, tenacity, and dedication to their education.

Batonga implements its mission at a country level by working in partnership with existing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that have successful onsite experience in girls’ education. Our work is guided by the input of a Board of Advisors who have extensive experience in this field.
