THE STORY:

Oasis Initiative wrote -

Invest in girls, transform a region.

BENEFITING: Centre for Girls Education, Kaduna State, Northern Nigeria

The Center for Girls’ Education (CGE) just met its first goal of raising $5000 to pay for school fees for 200 adolescent girls to attend Junior Secondary School in Northern Nigeria.

Now let’s raise school fees for all the girls in CGE project villages who are entering secondary school, an incoming class of 600 girls, that is, $10,000 more.

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 1,000 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 educate at least 600 more girls with the money donated at this webpage.

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 school fees for a year.

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

$144 will cover one girl’s school fees for 6 years.

 

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 school receipts upon requested.
