2018 Annual Report

12th December 2019

Back to all news

Dear Friends and Supporters,

I am proud to present to you Batonga Foundation’s 2018 Annual Report and the incredible growth and impact your support has generated. 

In 2018, Batonga doubled the size and reach of our programs! We expanded our programs to start serving girls as young as ten years old. Accompanying these girls just before they hit puberty is crucial in helping them make choices that will lift them out of poverty. Our 67 new SONAFA Leadership Clubs for the additional 1,500 young girls aged 10-11 we added to our programs this year enable this age group to learn about their rights, their options, and how to make healthy choices, all the while becoming financially literate. This is going to make a huge difference in this new generation’s lives.  

The power that all of these girls possess within them is incredible. Now it is our job to continue to work to unleash this power and create a safer, healthier, and more equitable world where each and every one of these girls and women can thrive.

I am so grateful to each of you for your support and look forward to continuing to work together in our fight to ensure that all adolescent girls can access their rights, unleash their power, and reach their fullest potential.

With Love,

Angélique Kidjo
