What Is Our Current Fundraising Focus?

Student Sponsorship Program

Supporting the student sponsorship program will give you the opportunity to connect with and follow the progress of a SEGA student. You can have first-hand experience of how your contribution is making a difference. Visit the Student Sponsorship Donation Page

How does SEGA keep running? It’s thanks to you – our supporters – who continue to fund the basic needs required to run a residential school.

uniform-fittings-1Uniforms & Shoes – SEGA supplies each student with shoes, socks, undergarments, and a full uniform. Annual budget is $5,832 or approximately $30 per student. A special thanks to Mills Wear, Inc. who donates athletic uniforms to SEGA each year!

Student Recruitment & Selection – This is a lengthy process that entails a team of SEGA staff who travel to the selection region and spend several days interviewing, testing, and conducting home visits to determine the most appropriate student for SEGA. 20150322_nm_112The entire process costs  $3,240 or approximately $108 per student.

Student Meals – most students coming to SEGA have never had the luxury of eating 3 meals per day. SEGA spends just over $6,000 or approximately $27 per student on meals per month for the campus.

Solar Panels

We are raising funds for solar panels and batteries for the new construction, so that the entire SEGA Girls School campus can operate on solar energy. The total cost of the solar equipment for the six new buildings is $190,000, roughly $30,000 for each building.

If you are interested in donating solar equipment, or making a significant donation towards the purchase of solar equipment contact us.

Thank you for investing in girls’ education for a better world
