SAGES “Strengthening Adolescent Girls with Education & Support” began in 2003 and has proven to be a life-changing program for the girls and their families. It is a two-year empowerment program that includes peer group discussions, culturally driven field trips, education, and community service projects. Through these efforts, the girls envision their future, learn to find their potential, and gain control of their lives.
