This grant provides 716 female students and teachers in Abuja, Ibadan, Kano and Calabar with a packaged trip experience to see HE NAMED ME MALALA in theaters. Youthhubafrica will work closely with Reading Hamlets in Abuja, One Life for Human Development in Ibadan, Community Health Research in Kano, and After School Center for Career Development in Calabar to activate a screening that includes a panel discussion, sparking dialogue and actions across Nigeria surrounding girls' education issues.

A UNICEF report states that no fewer than 10.5 million Nigerian children are out of school, and about 60% of these out of school children are girls. Despite important education gains in recent decades, Nigeria, of all countries, has the largest number of girls not in school. The average girl stays in school only through age nine. Less than one-third of Nigeria's girls enroll in the lower secondary school and, in northern Nigeria, less than one in 10 girls generally completes secondary education.


This grant will empower girls in key cities to stand #withMalala and start demanding their right to 12 years of free, quality education in Nigeria. Discussions and post-screening lessons back in the classroom using the film's curriculum will encourage these girls to raise their voices, especially surrounding issues of violence against girls in and around school in Nigeria.

Long-Term Impact

The project will raise awareness about the importance of girls' education among children and youth in Nigeria.
