Educating Vulnerable Girls in Northeast Nigeria
It’s estimated that three million children in Nigeria need emergency education support. In the State of Borno alone, over 600,000 children have lost access to education and 943 of the 1,627 schools remain closed for the fourth year running.
This has had the greatest impact on girls, who are two and a half times more likely to be out-of-school, and face a heightened risk of trafficking, early and forced marriage, early pregnancy and gender-based violence. Only 4% of girls in Northeast Nigeria are expected to finish secondary school.
Your generosity will help support thousands of young people that have suffered through the trauma of displacement and violence return to school by helping them overcome the barriers to education and building their resilience to create brighter futures.
Educating Vulnerable Girls in Northeast Nigeria is a $10M project, started in December 2019, with an anticipated end date of December 2022.
Global Affairs Canada will generously match any donations made to this project 5:1 to offer maximum impact in Northeast Nigeria.
Individual Tax Receipts can be issued only to those with a Canadian address.
