THE STORY:

Invest in girls, transform a region.

DONATIONS GOING DIRECTLY TO: The Center for Girls Education, Kaduna State, Northern Nigeria

In 2015, the Center for Girls’ Education (CGE) met its first goal of raising $5000 to pay for 1 year of school fees for 200 adolescent girls to begin Junior Secondary School in Northern Nigeria. 

We raised our long-term goal to $15,000, intending to cover one additional year of school fees for an incoming class of 600 girls. Fortunately, a successful policy advocacy campaign in Nigeria has now made junior secondary school free.  This enables the CGE program to focus on senior secondary fees and to cover their completion exam fee, without which they are not considered graduates.

We are already halfway to our goal of $15,000.  In the new context, $15,000 will enable nearly 100 more girls to complete their entire secondary school education, an achievement that will truly transform their lives and the lives of their communities.

THE STORY:

Invest in girls, transform a region.

Tuition costs are the primary barrier to keeping rural girls in school in Northern Nigeria.  Since 2008, the Centre for Girls Education has raised funds for over 1,120 six-year secondary school scholarships for rural girls in Northern Kaduna State.  

The OASIS Initiative, in partnership with Venture Strategies for Health and Development (VSHD), is working to help 100 more girls complete their secondary school education. 

By supporting girls’ education, we can:

Break the Cycle of Poverty. An extra year of primary school education boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10–20 per cent. An extra year of secondary school adds 15–25 per cent.

Improve Health. Women aged 20-24 are five times less likely to die in childbirth than girls aged 10-14. Secondary education reduces maternal and infant mortality, improves health seeking behavior and improves overall quality of life. 

Accelerate Development. Girls' secondary education accelerates regional development and enables women's leadership.

$24 will cover one girl’s secondary school fees for a year.

$72 will cover one girl’s secondary school fees for 3 years.

$102 will cover one girl’s secondary school fees for 3 years, plus her secondary school exam fee.

97% of this will go directly to girls’ scholarships. The remainder is for the fundraising website's 3% fee for this service. Venture Strategies for Health and Development is a registered 501(c)3 and will send your donation directly to the Centre for Girls Education.  We will provide tax deduction receipts upon request.

"O Light Eterne, sole in thyself that dwellest, Sole knowest thyself, and, known unto thyself And knowing, lovest and smilest on thyself! Here vigour failed the lofty fantasy: But now was turning my desire and will, Even as a wheel that equally is moved, The Love which moves the sun and the other stars." 3 years ago
