Challenge

In a survey of student learning competencies in literacy, numeracy and life skills across sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria was the lowest scoring nation. Participation in education in Nigeria is associated with child gender, household income and geographical location with students in Public schools performing significantly poorer than their peers in private schools. Also gender stereotypes inhibit girls from exploring the possibilities in high growth career fields like science and technology.

Solution

Our program delivers hands-on technology workshops, English language remediation classes and life and leadership skills to 300 girls in public schools around Lagos, Nigeria. The technology workshops teach girls skills in electronics programming, and mobile app and games design. English workshops are designed to bridge the gaps in literacy while our activity-based Life and Leadership curriculum equip them with soft skills and leadership values that help improve self-efficacy and good citizenry.

Long-Term Impact

There is a strong link between educating and empowering girls and positive outcomes for maternal health, economic empowerment and social mobility. Girls with expanded opportunities and strong ethical value can be economic contributors, in the home and larger society, and can help foster higher ethical standards in a country like Nigeria where corruption is endemic.
