Updates on GEANCO Leadership Scholarship for Girls

By Afam Onyema | Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Our scholarship girls continue to thrive. They attend Brightland Academy in southeast Nigeria, Baptist High School in northern Nigeria and Lightway Academy in the capital of Abuja, and Fruitful Vines in southwest Nigeria. 

We continue to be grateful to the Archewell Foundation for supporting our girls’ education by donating school supplies to our girls. They also donated thousands of feminine hygiene products to girls & young women in Nigeria. Our GEANCO team distributed the products at special menstrual health workshops we organized at schools and health clinics throughout the country. This urgent work provided the girls with critically-important information about their bodies and will allow them to remain in school during their periods.

We are also delighted to announce that we recently received a $240,000 grant from the Smiths Groups Foundation to hold three STEM education summits for girls and boys througout Nigeria this year.  We will also create online STEM lessons that will be generally accessible to underprivileged students in Nigeria.
