“Every girl has the right to be educated!” – Dr.Unoma Okorafor, Founder and President, WAAW foundation
In Nigeria, more than 10.5 million children are out of school, according to the most recent data (UNICEF-WCARO Nigeria Fact sheets on Girls Education), most of them in the north of the country, and many of them girls (60%).
Poverty, discrimination, and exploitation keep millions of girls out of school. Most girls do not 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.
Often a uniform, school supplies or exam fees are all that stand between a girl and the education she needs to secure a brighter future. With your support, we can break the cycle of poverty.
Help a girl go to school, receive an education, and overcome poverty with your donation.
