New Skills Training -- and Much-Needed Gifts!

Thank you so much for helping to fund our vocational training programs for Boko Haram victims and other war-affected adolescent girls in Nigeria. We're so close to meeting our funding goal now!

Our Nigeria team recently shifted our skills training focus to emphasize agriculture in response to food insecurity issues created by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the program is still in the initial stages, we expect to be ready to begin demonstrations and small farm projects in the second quarter of 2021.

In addition to agriculture, bakery, and other skills training programs, some of our students in Nigeria have been learning to make handbags. Over 20 girls enrolled in and completed our handbag-making program, and several are now making handbags on their own to earn some income.

Also ending the year on a positive note: All of our students in Nigeria recently received Christmas gift bags -- hygiene kits containing soap, razors, underwear, and other necessities. (Basic hygiene supplies are often difficult for residents of displacement camps to obtain, a reality that has been exacerbated by the pandemic.)

ChildVoice’s vocational training and associated programs are made possible only by the support of donors like you who care about the lives of vulnerable, war-traumatized girls. With the pandemic continuing to impact everyday life for all of us, we thank you for your ongoing support. Together, we can make change happen!
