Who We Are

We believe education changes everything!

One Girl is a grassroots not-for-profit organisation on a mission to help break down the financial, cultural & social barriers girls and young women face in accessing their right to education.

Our locally led programs team is based in Sierra Leone, with fundraising and operations based in Melbourne, Australia. 

We are fully funded by everyday people (but we like to think of them as extraordinary individuals) - One Girl supporters who are changing the world with us, one girl at a time.

One Girl Sierra Leone School

And we’re not just your average organisation.
We challenge the status quo by being:

 Girl Led

We ensure that girls’ rights and voices are at the core of everything we do. We are led by them - They are the experts in their own lives and know best what challenges they are facing.

Strengths Based

We take a strengths based approach in our storytelling. We represent the power, joy and strength of girls & young women. No victim shaming here.

Locally Led

Co-creating our programs with the girls is a local team of passionate and experienced Sierra Leonean people!

Partnership Positive

We believe in leveraging the power of partnerships to scale up impact.

And through it all, we live by our values:


We are

We believe every girl on the planet has a right to education and we won't stop until this happens.


We challenge
status quo 

We're not your ordinary NGO. We believe in the power of doing things differently.


We are

We will always be open and honest
with our supporters and partners. 


We are transformative

Together, we are changing the world,
one girl at a time.
