"Empower women empower Africa"
Lets work together to ensure young girls stay in school and complete secondary education.


About Us

Support Girl Child Organization was started to help girls and women with innovative solutions which address the most immediate problems that women face in regards to healthcare services in the Arid & Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) starting with Makueni, Kitui and Mwingi districts.

Our Main areas of work are;

1. Providing sanitary towels/panties to girls in schools. This would help reduce the number of days these girls were absent from school due to unavailability and inability to acquire these products.

2. Restoring women’s dignity by providing obstetric fistula surgery which otherwise gone untreated can often lead to social, emotional and economic decline as well as broken homes.

3. Fund scholarships for girls to receive quality un interrupted primary and secondary education.

Our Vision
To see the girl child realise her full potential with sanitation and hygiene needs catered for and excel in school to be self-sufficient and not dependent on aid.

Our Mission
Empower women and girls in poverty stricken areas in rural arid and semi-arid areas in East Africa and improving their daily lives and the community at large by influencing government policies and practices as well as engaging the public.
