About SAFG:

SAFG's mission is to keep kids, especially girls and under served youth (starting at the age of 5), engaged in STEM for the long term, either as professionals in STEM fields or as contributing members of the global community with a strong background in technological skills and scientific methods.

SAFG envisions a gender­ equitable society, where all girls know their full potential and know they are capable of great things. They will be equipped with 21st century skills.
