Our organization is comprised of multiple initiatives, including our well-known Exponential Education Peer to Peer programs, our newly established Girls Leadership, Engagement, Action Program (LEAP), and Expo NEWTS. This term, we will be piloting a new boy’s program in order to address gender inequality more wholesomely.

The goal is to work towards eliminating gender inequalities that hold back the development of our communities and nation, while also freeing boys of the restraints that masculinities can create, so they, too, can lead happier and healthier lives.
