Simply stated, we invest our time and resources in adolescent girls because they hold the key to a better and healthier world. Globally, girls face greater social and economic obstacles than their male counterparts. Because adolescence is the period when girls cultivate habits and make the decisions that shape the kind of women they become, it is crucial that adolescent girls have access to mentors and learning opportunities that will promote their positive development. When girls are empowered and thriving, their families and communities also thrive. A higher level of investment in the girl child is necessary to ensure the achievement of the Global Goals.
Investing in girls is smart economics
While SEGEI seeks to empower girls and women in the global community, our projects are based primarily in Nigeria and Kenya, with community collaborations in the United States.
