Project Report | Mar 19, 2020
Girls education needs your help!

By Rukshana | Project Volunteer

The Lagos State Government has said that it will close down all public and private schools from Monday, March 23, 2020, as part of the preventive measures against the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, The State announced this on its Twitter handle; @followlasg

Further, twitter instructions were:

“It is important for parents to ensure that their children practise ‘social distancing’ while at home, wash their hands regularly or use hand sanitizers and observe high standards of personal hygiene.  Children should be encouraged to remain at home.”

And it was clarified via the State twitter account that “The closure is not intended to create panic but to arrest the spread of the disease, which has become a global threat."

“The Incident Command Centre, headed by the Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who is the Incident Commander, will continue to trace all contacts of the identified cases and encourage anyone who has information about suspected cases to report to the nearest hospital or call the emergency telephone numbers 08023169485, 08033565529, 08052817243 and 08023401214,” the tweet continued.

We have ceased all live trainings in Nigeria at this time.  We are looking for ways to virtual outreach to our scholars to keep them engaged and learning. We will keep you updated.

In the meanwhile, please continue to support this great cause and this project which will continue as soon as safety permits.
