Meet Titilayo

Here's Her Story...

Meet Titilayo (Titi) Mesaiyete, a 15-year-old first child in a family of four children. Her father is a mechanic and her mother a domestic help. She had been staying at home since she concluded her primary education in 2015 due to financial constraints. Her dream of starting junior school was bleak. Having stayed at home at the time for more than two years, she confided that she was already forgetting some of the things she learned while in primary school. In 2017, through the SEGEI scholarship & mentorship program, she enrolled in JSS1 and her delight was so satisfying to watch. Through SEGEI’s education program, Titilayo and other girls are provided with academic scholarships, school supplies and tutoring in selected subjects particularly English language and mathematics which helps keep their grades up and ensure that they do well in school.

By contributing to the SEGEI Scholarship Fund you ensure that girls are not denied an education because of their inability to afford it.

Many driven and exceptional young women are denied the opportunity for higher education due to lack of money. This fund provides supplemental scholarships to assist young women in low-resource settings to pursue a university degree. All donations are tax deductible.
