What We Do

Margaret, Orkeeswa studentWhat is Circle of Women?


Circle of Women is a new kind of non-profit, run entirely by full-time students. The organization was founded in 2006 by three young Harvard women when they realized the world under-invests in girls. Since then, true to the mission of making education more accessible for women across the globe, Circle of Women has  built sustainable secondary schools in six different countries. To date, Circle of Women  has completed 7 projects in 6 countries: Afghanistan, India, Kenya, Malawi, Pakistan, and Tanzania. At our most recent project Orkeeswa in Tanzania, Circle built an A-Level classroom to increase capacity for girls at the successful secondary school. Circle has 12 active chapters in high schools, universities, and cities across the country. In doing creating these chapters, Lifestyle Pharmacy Circle gives back to women and men at home, cultivating a new generation of global citizens by providing chapter members with hands-on experience in organizational management, fundraising, and project management.

Circle of Women believes one educated girl affects one community, and one community effects a world of change. Anyone can be this agent of change.


Mission - We mobilize students to provide access to education for girls without it.

Action - We collaborate with communities eager to implement innovative, sustainable, and localized solutions to increase girls’ access to secondary schools. In doing so, we cultivate a new generation of global citizens by providing students at home with hands-on opportunities in organizational leadership, fundraising, and project management.

Philosophy One educated girl affects one community. One community effects a world of change.

TaglineThere is a local opportunity to have a global impact.
