Majengo’s programming emphasizes, the importance of education.
During School Closures:
Though schools were closed from March to July, Majengo worked hard to provide support to all the students both inside and outside of the centre, regardless of gender. Majengo provided:
– homeschool work packs
– school supplies
– food subsidies
– handwashing kits and coronavirus education
Additionally, classes were held within the centre to keep up with the curriculum.
These initiatives were not only put in place to support children and their families through a difficult time, but also to ensure that all students, and especially girls, remained engaged in school and would be eager to return as soon as possible. Keeping girls engaged is just one small way to keep them safe, and help them return to the classroom.
The children enrolled in Majengo’s education programming are continuing to return to school as they open. Majengo mentors, supports and empowers its students to achieve their best and remain motivated and determined while pursuing their education.
A girl who can advocate for herself will be much more likely to succeed
In addition to providing school supplies, fees and mentorship, Majengo also takes special care to emphasize the importance of each girl child’s education and works to empower them to be independent and outspoken.
Today is The International Day of The Girl Child, and we are thrilled to celebrate our girls – both old and young – who continue to achieve, succeed and grow every single day. As Malala Yousafzai said, ” We cannot all succeed if half of us are held back.”
