Challenge

Rural Kaduna has high incidence of poverty, which affects children education, hygiene, nutrition and health. Girls/women are most affected, as they become breadwinners with the dereliction of their husbands/fathers. Without income skills, most females are at the mercy of vices. Survey suggests 6 of 10 girls quit school due to poverty. Females have difficulty accessing gender- empowerment information, absence of online mentoring forums and lack of exposure harness arts to promote gender causes

Solution

The project will financially support the education of 10 girls in public secondary schools and build their capacity in life skills over two years. It will train, mentor and support 120 indigent women (widows and heads of households) in income generating skills as well as soft loans to enable them start up small businesses. It will also engage 100 female college students in an online network and will support opportunities for 2 female artists to advocate on social causes using their crafts.

Long-Term Impact

Ten girls will complete their secondary school education, giving them a fighting chance to further the education. The capacity of 120 indigent women would have been built, their level of poverty reduced with an improved economic status. 2 female artists will have received exposure and use their work to further social causes on gender parity and VAGW reaching the wider community. 100 female adults from two tertiary institutions empowered, connected and engaged in capacity building and exchange.
