Improving Girls Education

Girls Education Trust Fund is a fundraising project that seeks to ensure young girls from rural communities in Nigeria gain access to quality education and necessary school materials. So far, the project has received a donation of 45 dollars and 25,000 naira which sums to about 114USD out of the requested 6,646 USD.

 

We began with the mapping of schools in communities where beneficiaries will be selected. Letters were also sent, alongside ongoing conversations with principals of selected schools to determine the eligibility criteria for the young girls. The criteria for selection was decided due to the fact that not all of these girls can be supported as a result of limited funds. Beneficiary forms were also created for record purposes and to track the progress of each beneficiary. 

 

In order to raise more funds, YouthHubAfrica staff have also had discussions to re-strategise on fundraising techniques that can work better to increase the number of beneficiaries. In this light, we appreciate your support in improving the lives of young girls in Nigeria as we hope to create more impact this year 2020. 

 

Happy New Year 2020!

Funding Girls Education

The Girls Education Trust Fund is a project which aims to help 30 young girls access basic education and also assist in the provision of materials for young girls in schools across communities in Nigeria. The project will support the needs of young girls to access 12 years of basic education in Nigeria which will impact the number of out of schoolgirls in Nigeria.

With the Girls’ Education Trust Fund, young girls will have their tuition paid, will have access to books, and other necessary materials for schooling. The project which was launched 3 months ago has received 45 USD from 3 donors on Global giving and the sum of 20,000 naira donation to the organization. The total amount of donation received so far sums about 100USD out of the requested 6,646 USD.

However, with the limited resources available, additional funding is required for the full implementation of the project. Albeit, mapping activities for the proper selection of girls are ongoing in communities and schools. The purpose of this activity is to ensure that the most vulnerable girls who need these monies and assistant get to receive them.

Stating this, YouthHubAfrica appreciates and commends the contributions of donors towards this project as we work together to ensure the future of girls are safe and secured and also building a strong skilled force.

16 Young people Trained in the Media Internship Program II

The Second Edition of YouthHubAfrica's Media Internship Program training was a comprehensive 4-day media training where young persons within the ages of 18 to 30 acquired hands-on training on skills such as Photography, Videography, Social Media Management and Video Editing. An Open Call for Application was rolled out for a week starting from Tuesday, January 15, 2019, to Tuesday, January 22 2019. A total of 242 young Nigerians applied for the training, of which only 16 persons were selected and trained, instead of the initial proposed target of 25 young persons.

The training commenced on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, to Friday, February 1, 2019, with different sessions facilitated by 10 resources persons who are experts in media, particularly media for development. The training, despite the odds, was impactful, empowering and commendable. Participants were awarded Certificates at the end of the 4-day training. This will be followed by a maximum of 6-months paid internship with our organization and interested sister organizations.

However, due to insufficient funds, YouthHubAfrica was only able to train 16 persons as against the proposed 25 persons. We were able to raise $60 from GlobalGiving. Additional funds covering expenses for the project was self-sourced.

We believe that the training would have being a more practical and enriching one if we had had enough equipment, facilitators and logistics to cover for the 16 participants and even include more individuals to meet the proposed target of 25 persons.

Thank you for your support so far. We believe we can reach our target for the year 2020 with your support.
