Education is the key to unlocking the growth potential of our great nation Nigeria; this is why the education of children, especially the girl child is of paramount importance to Women Impacting Nigeria. Girls education is a strategic development priority. Better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labor market, earn higher incomes and enable better healthcare and education should they choose to become mothers.
Women Impacting Nigeria has taken strides to create programs that empower and educate females in the society. We currently have over 100 mentors available for the WIN ‘One Woman, One Child’ mentorship program, to inspire and develop educational and career aspirations, reduce female dropout in primary school, increase the number of girls advancing to secondary school and to show the children that WIN cares about helping them achieve their goals and fulfilling their potential.
