Thank you for joining Ndajee 2023!

On May 22nd, hundreds of global advocates and friends met at Bronzeville Winery in Chicago for Women's Global Education Project's annual Ndajee benefit to support girls' education in rural Senegal & Kenya. Ndajee (en-DAH-jee) means "get together" in Wolof, and we were grateful to coming together to celebrate our organization's growth, and share stories of impact from the women and girls in our programs.
