Mission Statement

NIGEE’s mission is to leverage community resources to equip vulnerable girls with knowledge and skills for productive and fulfilled adult life. We target girls who dropped out of school, mainly due to teen pregnancy, sexual violence, female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage. NIGEE operates in western Kenya which exhibits the worst indicators in a number of critical aspects of public health nationally.
