Our Objectives

Is to encourage and promote girl child education and women empowerment

CGEE, is committed and dedicated to encouraging and promoting girl child education by identifying the less privileged ones and enrolling them in schools and offering free education / scholarships to them, funding them from primary up to university level. We organize seminars / workshops toward sensitizing the rural areas on the importance of girl child education.

CGEE, identifies less privileged women and widows, support them with grants to start small scale business. We seek to partner with donor agencies, corporate organizations and spirited individuals for assistance (financial or otherwise) to enable us achieve our objectives.

Why Support Us?

  • The Nigeria Digest of Education Statistics (NDES) released by the Federal Ministry of Education indicated that more than 10 million children are out of school and about 60% of these out of school children are girls. Furthermore, with a completion rate of 64%, 39% and 29% for girls in primary, Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary School respectively, many girls who do enroll drop out early. It is an undisputed fact that women are the builders of home/families. The more educated and empowered women are, the better for the family and society at large.

     

    This is why we are channeling resources towards building and helping people achieve their goals in life with focus on educating the girl child and empowering the less privileged women. Your support to the Organization will ensure a better society for all and sundry.

  • The establishment of the organization was borne out of the necessity to ensuring a better society, promising future and making the World a better place for all and sundry.
