Solar Powered e-Readers for SEGA Girls

Education

Help RP Construction Services, Inc. and Nurturing Minds bring solar powered e-Readers to the students of the SEGA Girls' School in Morogoro, Tanzania.

RP Construction Services, Inc. (RPCS) and Nurturing Minds, Inc. are excited to announce the launch of a campaign to bring e-Readers to the SEGA Girls' School.

Funded by Nurturing Minds, the SEGA Girls' School opened in 2008 to provide quality education and life skills for at-risk girls in Tanzania. SEGA provides secondary education and housing for over 270 girls in grades 7 through 11. In addition, 60 graduates live off-campus who are currently enrolled in continuing education programs supported by SEGA scholarships. Their mission is to educate and empower Tanzanian girls who are impoverished, marginalized, and in danger of becoming involved in exploitative forms of child labor.

Introducing e-Readers will provide the opportunity for students to become active learners through technology, and will be an added resource to fuel academic success. Through this joint campaign, RPCS and Nurturing Minds hope to supply 60 e-Readers to students to improve reading and vocabulary skills, and aid students in scoring higher on national exams, all while creating a brighter future for SEGA students.

SEGA also instills environmental stewardship, and operates an environmentally sustainable off-the-grid campus that runs entirely on solar power. This provides a clean, renewable energy source which eliminates the dependency on unreliable nationally supplied electricity and provides a superior learning environment for students. The solar power will ultimately allow students to charge e-Readers and give them the ability to study at night.

Help RPCS and Nurturing Minds create a brighter future for SEGA students!
