Challenge

According to the one on one interview with some community members during a field research conducted at Imude Community in Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State Nigeria with estimated population of 60,000 people indicated that 4 of every 10 girls marry before the age of 17 years, preventing them from further education or acquiring skills that can empower them economically (Bella Foundation 2019, Focus Group Discussion report on child marriage in Imude Community).

Solution

Bella Foundation for Child and Maternal Care will enroll these 5 girls in schools in order for them to pass their West Africa School Certificate examination and afterwards enroll them in the Joint Admission and Matriculation exams which will qualify them to gain admission into the University. These girls will also be trained as champions to advocate against girl child marriage in the community and the importance of sending the girl child to school.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 5 adolescent girls ( aged 12-17 years) which will eventually provide employment, thereby bringing them out of poverty, improving their health and their families and the community at large.
