Safety First for Girls —SAFIGI Outreach Foundation is a youth-led volunteer based non-profit registered in Zambia, Africa. We work with online volunteers to advance the interests of girl safety for girls aged 8-25 years old through Safety Education, increase accessibility to information on women’s health and wellbeing, and pursue socio-economic development through intrapreneurship.
Safety Education is the understanding that internal and external safety has to be achieved in order to attain peace. Internal safety is peace of mind, heart, emotions, and external safety is protection of the body, other person, and environment.
Our vision is to develop a world where girls are empowered, equipped and fulfilled in every aspect of their life for global development. And it is our mission to advance safety for girls through Safety Education. We achieve this through social media campaigns, volunteerism, partnerships, and workshops at a grassroots level, including webinars.
We began our work on May 9, 2012 and registered on July 18, 2014 in Zambia. To date, we have worked with online volunteers from over 50 countries and at least 200 volunteers since 2014. We maintain a 4.8 out of 5 volunteer rating from over 100 volunteers on UN Online Volunteers platform and also connect to local volunteers.
