Planned Giving

“Nurturing Minds and the SEGA Girls’ School is among my favorite charitable organizations.  I have come to know them intimately as a NM board member, student sponsor, and school visitor beginning in 2010, and every day I am impressed with both organizations’ leadership, how they approach and implement their mission, and what they’ve accomplished.  The metamorphosis of the students is the proof of their success. While my support is but a ripple in the pond, I know collectively it has an impact, and I want to ensure that SEGA remains a beacon and role model in the East African region and beyond.  To do this, I have chosen to leverage my current giving by leaving Nurturing Minds a bequest in my will.” – Susan Hannah

Student Sponsorship

Sponsoring a student at SEGA is a meaningful way to support our important work and connect with and follow the progress of one SEGA student. It gives you a first-hand experience of seeing how your contribution to the school is making a difference, offers a cultural exchange and helps girls improve their English. Committing to 4 years is a great and stable way for the girls to get to know their sponsors, and also for you to cheer them on throughout their time at SEGA.
