OUR theory of change
The Ann Bancroft Foundation believes investing in girls by increasing access to transformative experiences builds competence, confidence, connection, character and caring (the 5 C’s of positive youth development), and disrupts the impacts of gender inequities by helping girls build skills to navigate the challenges they face today, and laying the foundation for future successes that strengthen our communities.
