SGC was founded on the principles and ethos of the Starehe Boys Centre/School, collectively known as the “The Starehe Way”. The School motto “Our Education, Our Strength” (“ElimuYetu, NguvuYetu”) reflects the spirit of academic excellence that permeates the culture of the Centre.The founders of SGC set out not merely to provide food, clothing and protection to girls in need, but to restore in them the self-confidence and self-respect so often injured by earlier misfortune in life and finally to provide them with sound enough education to serve them well in today’s competitive world.
The Centre is a National Boarding School which has over the years been improving its infrastructure and facilities by building new classrooms, laboratories, dormitories, a dispensary, a library, a dining hall, as well as a borehole to provide water and a bio gas digester.
Vision: To establish a national centre of academic excellence for bright but disadvantaged girls incorporating high standards of discipline, responsibility, integrity and service.
Mission: To provide a homely, supportive environment within which girls from disadvantaged backgrounds can develop their full potential in academic and personal development. Also to redress the imbalance in access to quality education and leadership opportunities for disadvantaged adolescent girls.
