Challenge

According to the Nigerian National Bureau of Statistics, there are 83,000,000 Nigerians, about 40% are living in poverty. Poverty is the factor that exposes young girls to street hawking for a livelihood. Girls that resort to street hawking experience sexual violence, rape, and sexually transmitted diseases. The quest for money for sustenance drives the girls to prostitution to make more food and negatively affects their physical, mental well-being, and career development.

Solution

GCAF provides textile design training for underserved young women in the society who experience poverty. The girls are trained in creative and technical processes of making batik, tie and dye, fabric pattern designs, weaving, knitting on fabrics, and marketing skills. This project will empower underserved young women, promoting education and bodily rights through the artistic expression of arts and crafts through textile design.

Long-Term Impact

The project will empower 30 young women, improve their self-worth, and equip them with entrepreneurial skills to earn a living. Exposure to sexual violence, human and body rights violations and transactional sex will reduce among young women. They will overcome financial lack and become support systems for their families.
