Mission and Impact
Every three seconds, a girl becomes a child bride. The number one cause of death for girls aged 15 to 19 is childbirth, and four out of five victims of human trafficking are girls.
OneSqin supports pupils at the SEGA Girls School in Tanzania through the NPO Nurturing Minds in Africa.
SEGA students are vulnerable girls, who have left school before completing their primary education. Some have lost their parents to malaria, AIDS or other diseases; some can’t afford uniforms, books or transport to government schools; some work to support their families and have no time to attend school.
