Nigeria Digest of Education Statistics (NDES), indicates that more than 10 million children are out of school, and about 60 per cent of these out-of-school children are girls. Furthermore, with a completion rate of 64%, 39% and 29% for girls in primary, junior secondary and senior secondary school respectively, many girls who do enroll drop out early.While education indicators are low nationwide, they continue to remain weakest in the North-East, West and Central zones of the country.
This project seeks to facilitate sustainable and innovative interventions that improve access to quality and inclusive education for girls. We will provide mentorship/career guidance for 50 girls annually to build sustainable, independent futures-ensuring they are not vulnerable to violence and abuse. The girls will be supported with Tuition and exam fee, text and exercise books, school uniforms, bags, socks, shoe, sanitary pads and transport stipend.
The main objectives of this Project includes: 1. increasing enrollment, retention and completion rates of girls in primary and post primary schools particularly in conflict prone areas and among internally displaced communities. 2. Improving Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in primary and post primary schools. 3. Influencing policies and ensuring the Government takes education of girls with seriousness and ensuring sustainability of girl child education initiatives.
