Sega Students Celebrate International Women’s Day

On March 8th, the Sega students joined with women across the World to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Students in the Sega Girls School’s recently formed Peer Educator Club prepared a speech to raise awareness of International Women’s Day.  Club member Vaselista Njozi presented the speech during the Sega Girls School morning assembly on March 8th. The girls then visited a local radio station to talk about the opportunities that their education is giving them, and spent time sharing information at a Women’s Center.

In their speech, the students first thanked all of the women staff at the school for their inspiration and support. They then commented that nowadays there are more opportunities worldwide for women to be educated, to share their ideas and become leaders. They celebrated famous Tanzanian women leaders like Anna Makinda, the first female speaker of the Tanzanian National Assembly, and Asha-Rose Migiro, former Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations.

The speech finished with the Peer Educator Club motto “Wanawake Tunaweza Bila Kuwezeshwa”, which means “Women Can Do It Themselves”!
