Overwhelming Joy and Excitement for NIGEE Girls! It has been almost 2 years 4 months since this journey begun with your support in cooperated and when you support the empowerment center you are not just funding but you are empowering a million girls strong that make real change happen. As much as it’s incomplete the girls could not just wait but use the complete section of the building in running activities. In the month of August NIGEE conduct a leadership and girl-led advocacy training for 35 girls within the facility: The training focused on the following topics: Leadership skills, Communication skills, basic community-led M&E skills, Team work, Advocacy, Networking, Social mobilization, basic Mentorship concepts, Understanding social norms, Problem solving, Message designing and girl-led media tools. As NIGEE we couldn’t resist sharing with you some of the great reactions from the girls as follows: “I wish to thank you for the continuous support and the help you provide, for your dedication, attention and open-minded thinking and for your readiness to help whenever you hear from us” “I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous giving. So that you will understand the importance of your act, I would like you to know that your generosity has helped in my long recovery from my dark background” See photo below, Donors happy as much as the girls and showed their support by sharing out our post on how girls are excited about the new structure”. NIGEE Girls empowerment center flash activities: • In the past two months, NIGEE maintained the 444 girls reached with the skills training since the inception of the program. • Currently, 378 girls have completed and have graduated in dressmaking, computer skills and hairdressing. • The GEC provides life skills sessions to girls’ to build their self-esteem and confidence in all aspects of life, the sessions are conducted at the girl’s center by the mentors. They continue to use the standard life skill training manual during the sessions. We have also partnered with the health sector who has greatly offered Education on Reproductive health to the girls. • The GEC safe space have influenced girls to learn more on the referral pathway in the community and this has accelerated reporting of any form of Gender Based Violence (SGBV), this has also allowed NIGEE to be extremely keen on girls experiencing exploitation in the society and make necessary referrals because NIGEE protects, promotes and ensures that all rights of women and girls are respected. It is our pride to inform you that every dollar you donate to us is used to build a fairer, flourishing and just society and what mesmerizes the girls is the fact that every penny will support!!!
