I Am An African Girl is the theme song for the #AfricaEducatesHer campaign, a rallying call to Africa's leaders, education stakeholders, and youth to take action that safeguards African girls and women's education during and post the COVID-19 school-related lockdowns and disruptions.
This collaborative song was done by Afrie (from Uganda) ft Ifé (from Nigeria) and Smarty (Burkina Faso) and was co-produced by the AU/CIEFFA. The song is an official remix of Afrie's song "Let Her Know".
Millions of girls in Africa are out of school due to COVID-19 related disruptions and are at risk of never returning to the classroom. We call on Africa to make a stand for girls and take action that ensures girls return to school!
