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.


The project seeks to facilitate sustainable and innovative interventions that improve access to quality and inclusive education for girls. We will provide scholarship, 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, uniforms, bags, socks, shoe, sanitary pads, transport fair and other needs of girls and the organisation.

Long-Term Impact

The main objectives of this Project includes: 1. increased access to quality education for girls in primary and post primary schools 2. Improved Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) among girls. 3.
