“There’s nothing as exciting as a comeback – seeing someone with

dreams, watching them fail, and then getting a second chance!”

This couldn’t be more true, especially for PAK, for we were exhilarated

and felt extremely honored to witness and capture these amazing girls

given a second chance to work towards a brighter future.

As it is in the country, thousands upon thousands of girls fail to finish

school because they are forced by their society, their circumstances or

even by the threat of violence to focus on household, caregiving and

child rearing responsibilities.

To combat these challenges that are so prevalent in the Nyanza region

of Kenya, NIGEE was born.

Nyanza Initiative for Girls’ Education & Empowerment (NIGEE) located

in Kisumu, is an organization that provides an opportunity for girls who

dropped out of school due to Teen Pregnancies, Female Genital

Mutilation, Child Marriages, HIV, and Poverty to resume schooling and

improve their chances of living a fulfilled adult life.

Partly sponsored by the French Embassy as one of the PISCCA Projects,

they empower Adolescent Girls and Young Women by equipping them

with skills necessary for employment; offering vocational skills, training

on hairdressing, dressmaking and computer studies.

We believe that women, like men, must be educated, for there is no

greater pillar of stability than a strong, free and educated woman
