About Our 2020 Goal
In Nigeria, 13.2 million children are out of school, the highest in the world. About 60% of these out-of-school children are girls. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on education in the country, with schools closed from March through November. Girls and young women were among the hardest affected as additional household duties reduced the time spent on education.
As schools reopen, Give Girls A Chance is working to ensure that we support as many girls as possible to return to school safely. We also plan to support those who may have fallen behind in their education as they work to catch up.
This year, Giving Tuesday also falls on our 4-year anniversary as an organization. Over the past 4 years, we have supported more than 100 girls through our Scholarship and Mentoring program. Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 to support an additional 100 girls for the next 2 years. $100 will cover the tuition, fees, and uniforms for a girl for 2 years.
Join us as we work toward a more equitable society through education.
