Visit or Volunteer

Visits and volunteers 1

Visitors and volunteers are welcomed and valued at the SEGA Girls School. The opportunity to meet and get to know our students is a life changing experience for many of our supporters.

“You hear a lot about giving opportunities to help girls education in third world countries and I can say with enthusiasm that the SEGA Girls School works. To meet the teachers, volunteers and especially the girls was a rewarding experience I will carry with me always.”

Cindy Hughes, Chaperone with the Agnes Irwin School Service Learning Visit

Visitors

We are able to accommodate groups of up to 12 who would like to visit the school for up to 3 days and connect with the SEGA students. The school is open to visitors after 3:30 pm during the week (after class hours) or all day on the weekends. We suggest that visits are best planned for a long weekend to maximize time for students and visitors to enjoy time together.  It is possible to spend an extra day or so visiting the surrounding area, and many visitors combine a visit to the school with a safari or holiday in Zanzibar. We are happy to give advice and ideas for your stay.

Visits & visitors 2A visit to the SEGA Girls School will cost $50 per person per day, which covers the administrative costs of arranging your visit and a donation to the school. This includes dormitory-style accommodation in bunk beds and simple meals provided by the school, although if you prefer, you can arrange to stay in hotel accommodation and eat in Morogoro town.

Visitors under the age of 22 are required to come with at least one other person, and under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or other adult aged 25 or more.
