Empower 50 Nigerian Girls to Forge their Own Path

by Wonder Foundation

Summary

Poverty is a significant challenge for many in Nigeria, and because of this many young women are left unable to gain sufficient education to get secure, well-paid jobs. Wonder Foundation will enable 50 at-risk young women to access quality vocational training in the growing hospitality and tourism industry. Our beneficiaries will acquire entrepreneurial skills and the ability to make lasting changes to their lives and those around them.

Challenge

In Nigeria, many young people are unable to complete their education due to their families' financial instability. Being a girl with few opportunities leaves them vulnerable to child pregnancy and early marriage, forced servitude and trafficking. The young women we educate aspire to continue their education to fulfil their own potential and forge their own paths.

Solution

Girls from at-risk communities will receive high-quality professional training and opportunities to work in Nigeria's growing hospitality and tourism industry. Our project promotes self-sufficiency and agency in young women, boosting their self-confidence and self-worth, enabling them to secure employment, typically doubling their family's income in their first job, or start their own enterprises as well as to inspire other girls in their families and communities.

Long-Term Impact

Our graduates will have greater financial security, and improve their quality of life. They are empowered to make better, considered life choices about their personal relationships, such as who they marry, and how they raise their children. They inspire through their example and become leaders in their workplaces and communities. They will create new employment opportunities in their local communities and inspiring women to improve their own lives.
