Star Girl Education Foundation (SGEF) mentors 38 Secondary School Girls on “Choosing the Right Career”



Star Girl Education Foundation

Star Girl Education Foundation (SGEF) recently concluded a one-day career mentorship programme of 38 girls in Junior Secondary School at Ikosi Junior High School. The program entitled “Choosing the Right Career” was very well received by the Principal, Vice Principal and Career Counsellor at Ikosi Junior High School. The program empowered girls with the various 21st-century careers and also the ability to find their purpose and passion early in life.

Star Girl Education Foundation team made up of Funmilola Kehinde, Tomi Bamgbelu, Anu Adelakun, Seun Taylor and Onyechi Chukwujama expressed their satisfaction at the success of the program. They also encouraged the girls to find their strengths and focus on it very early. They emphasized the importance of having a good relationship with God as it is the bedrock of success in life.

At the beginning of the program, the girls expressed their desires to become Doctors, Fashion Designers, Accountants and Bankers only. Most of them had a limited view of the 21t century careers such as Social Media Managers, IT Consultants and the likes.

The team mentored the girls on the new age careers and the great possibility of carving a career path in them. After the end of the program, the girls were more aware and educated about the new career paths and also promised the team they would work hard and never give up on their dreams.

Star Girl Education Foundation is an educational NGO for junior secondary schools; we facilitate learning and development using technology, mentorship programmes and latest innovations in career evolution to prepare the female child for opportunities in the future.

We aim to expose them to as many career options as possible and steer them in the most fulfilling career path.

Our Vision is to educate, motivate and inspire 10,000 young girls in becoming better leaders through the provision of mentorship and training in the next 10 years.

    the males/boys nko?

    Instead of you to educate them all together, you will isolate boys all in the name of FEMINISM and women empowerment

    Later you all will be shouting that the men arenot cultured, they dont have values, you cant find a good husband to marry…bla bla bla

    are they meant to acquire the skills from the wind?

    kontinue…awom feminist oshi

      I do not think this has anything to do with feminism.. The team have found a niche and they have rightfully tapped into it. If you feel like there is something missing for the boys then why not take up this challenge and set up a Star Boy Foundation and come together with this wonderful initiative that was set up by these people. Let us support one another and not bash each other.
      Let us be happy for each other and not cast stones.

    @boys nko, I’m so awed by your comment…. The organizers of this GREAT initiative have found their niche (ever heard of that word), why don’t you work on finding yours other than leaving such ‘BEAUTIFUL’ comment on the thread?.

    Nice Initiative Star Girl Education Foundation. Highly commendable. @Boys nko, I think it is up to us to do that. Also, I think FELA DUROTOYE is doing something like that already. If you are this passionate for Men, then just raise it up, I am sure many persons will support you. I will support you for instance. I dont want to believe it is a FEMINISM thing, I want to believe, it is about CAPACITY requirements and Scope of the Star Girl Edu Foundation. Let’s keep changing the world in our own way,
