Part 1

Supporting University Students Facing Gender-Based Violence.

Our foundational goal is simple: to make learning safe for women.

Part 2

Tech-Driven Mentorship & Support Programs.

As the future engine of the South African economy, Black South African women are pursuing higher education, business ownership and career in higher numbers than ever before. To ensure that their dreams are fulfilled, it is more important than ever to support these women in creating safe and sustainable solutions for both learning and growth.

 

Traditionally, American social impact initiatives on the African continent (South Africa specifically) have been focused on short-term solutions, but fail to give the long-term support necessary to ensure participant success. SGI plans to address these problems by implementing a digital learning technology that will connect our global network of resources with South African students who need them most.
