SEGA’s Modern Girl Program(Msichana wa kisasa – MK)
The program consists of 2 core stakeholders. SEGA Graduates who serve as the Mentors and Peer Educators in the communities and the community girls aged 10-20 years old. This age is critical because these young women are at a critical age where they are the most at risk of being forced into an early marriage, having an early pregnancy, and dropping out of school.

Our mentors collaborate with local health care professionals to teach young girls about diseases that have the ability to highly impact their life such as HIV & AIDS, Malaria, Breast Cancer, and HPV. They also discuss important women’s health issues such as menstruation and hygiene.
Life Skills Education
We focus on a series of activities geared to building confidence in both SEGA graduates and Our Life Skills Education program’s focus is to build strong, independent young women who have confidence, and self-awareness, and who also understand their rights as both women and children.
