Our History

Established in 2003 with the goal of addressing the wide gender gap in girl’s enrolment in school, especially in the Northern part of the country, Girl Child Concerns has continuously sought ways of improving the lives of girls and women in Nigeria. Its numerous interventions have not only provided access to education for young girls, but also provided them awareness on their reproductive lives, rights, entitlements and responsibility.

To achieve its goals, GCC targets the legislature, religious and traditional leaders as well as communities and institutions. 

 

GCC is working in empowering and promoting girl child education and providing educational support to young people through its Female Students Scholarships Scheme (FSSS), Safe Spaces and life skills development. Through a comprehensive approach the process of the scholarship scheme is built in such a way that  the girl-child is not only offered formal education but also armed with general life skills, sexuality education and in the process age of marriage is delayed. (Over 200 girls have graduated from secondary school under the scholarship scheme and we have almost 300 presently placed in various girls boarding schools in four states across the North)
