In Nigeria, the greatest challenge facing girls in pursuing an education is funding . Many girls lack access to education due to high costs of schooling (which include the cost of books, uniforms, transportation, shoes, bag, sanitary pads, tuition and exam fees). The nation widespread poverty makes it more difficult for parents to prioritized the education and training of girls. Statistics indicate glaring imbalances against girls in enrollment, attendance and completion rates in all level.
This project provide opportunities to access formal education, and mentorship/career guidance for 50 girls from less privileged homes to build sustainable, independent futures-ensuring they are not vulnerable to violence and abuse. We will provide tuition and exam fee, text and exercise books, school uniforms, bags, socks, shoe, sanitary pads and transport stipend to secondary school girls in north central part of Nigeria who are not provided with strong motivation to go to school.
Girls Education Mission International will increase school enrollment, retention and completion among young girls in northern part of Nigeria where is the Boko Haram target. We will train to empower and develop future global leaders, and break the cycle of illiteracy in the communities where we work; thereby creating the opportunities girls need to fulfill their dreams and potential. Our daughters are future mothers and leaders, they deserve what is best, and we must not give them anything less.
