Bright Minds

We are a team of Cameroonian and Nigerian women empowering girls and women in our communities through education, healthcare, clean water projects, and microloans

Sponsor a girl to attend Bright Minds Academy and transform her life trajectory from a young bride to an educated young woman with life choices

Your sponsorship will enable an out-of-school girl living in extreme poverty to attend Bright Minds Academy, providing her with a competitive education, ongoing healthcare, three nutritious meals a day, extracurricular activities, and the mentorship of our wonderful staff. Sponsors will receive photos and updates of their sponsored student's academic journey. Email to sponsor a girl on our waiting list and change her life forever.

We work in regions of West Africa experiencing armed conflict and extreme poverty, where most girls drop out of school before sixth grade and become young brides. Because we are from the communities we serve, we know what our communities need and we know how to use our limited funding to have the biggest impact.

Transforming the world, one girl at a time

The longer a girl stays in school, the later she tends to get married, the healthier her children, and the more economically stable her community becomes. What if every family with means sponsored the education of a girl without means?  Imagine the world we could live in...
