Change-Makers Announcement: Morgan Koegel

At the age of 25, Morgan Koegel is not only the youngest member of the One Girl team, but also its CEO.


One Girl is an organisation committed to educating girls across Sierra Leone and Uganda through programs that target gender inequality and factors that keep women out of the classroom. Previously Morgan has been the Sector Development Manager of Prison Legal Education and Assistance (PLEA) where she worked in prisons across Victoria, and CEO of Engage Education, a not-for-profit keeping Australian students from low socio-economic backgrounds in school. She is a passionate believer in the power of education and the capacity for young people to do anything they set their mind to.

But Morgan didn't always consider herself destined for global health and development stardom. Studying a law degree in Melbourne, she found herself faced with the opportunity of a lifetime, in the form of a Facebook video.

We are so excited to hear more from Morgan about her story, working in global development, and taking opportunities when you find them, no matter how daunting they may seem.
