Poverty, discrimination and exploitation keep millions of girls out of school. What's more, half of all girls in developing countries don't even finish primary school. Some girls must work to help their families or stay home to care for younger siblings. Other girls simply don't have the money for educational fees or school uniforms.

Your donation today can help transform the life of a girl in poverty and give her hope for the future. Education gives girls the potential to earn better wages, raise healthier and more educated children plus have voice in her community under human rights.

Without a basic education these children have a little chance of climbing out of the poverty they were born into. They're stuck in a cycle of poverty at a greater risk of malnutrition illness and diseases. Education is the key to unlocking a country potential for economic growth improve health gender equality peace and good governance

Students everywhere deserve schools that are safe, clean and uncrowned. They should spend their days feeling inspired to learn and grow. Your donations will be an extension of your affirmation to educate children of current & coming generations. Your contribution is for building a safer & secure society for all of us.

School participation remains a challenge across Nigeria, and obstacles are particularly severe in northern states. In addition to issues of school access, family and school resources, and attitudes towards education, school attendance in northern Nigeria is impeded by the increasingly brazen extremism of Boko Haram, an Islamist militant group, and it's targeting of girls’ education.

The group opposes the Western-style education associated with formal schooling in Nigeria and seeks to relegate women exclusively to the household.

 As a result, risks associated with school-going are compounded for girls and young women in a context where female educational attainment is persistently low. Indeed, in many northern states more than 90% of young women ages 15-24 have no experience with formal education

The April kidnapping of an estimated 200 school girls in Borno state by Boko Haram testifies to the magnitude of risk that girls and young women bear when they attend school. This challenge to safety accompanies great educational need in Borno , where the female secondary school net attendance rate is only 29% in comparison to a national average of 53%.

 An additional 18% of secondary school age  girls attend formal school in Borno but at the primary level. These girls may benefit from exposure to schooling but they are behind for their age and at greater risk of dropping out.

 Given the increased violence from Boko Haram from 2010 forward, it is impressive that even 54% of secondary school age girls participate in some form of schooling, formal or nonformal. Still, alarmingly, nearly half (46%) of girls of secondary school age aren’t attending either formal or non formal education programs and therefore don’t receive any benefits of schooling.
