We are very much aware of the possibilities; very persuaded that if the necessary conditions girls can emerge from the woods of education depravity and begin to better be set to meet the challenges of their immediate future. Following the enrolment of girls into the G4G Groups, the commencement of the weekly Life Skills development, a 5 days Leadership Training was held for the student group leaders during which key basic leadership skills were impacted to these young girls along with other Life Skills, Health related topics.
One key activity was the training of the girls on vocational skills, which could serve as an impetus for the young fertile minds to be self sufficient. Nasara Shittu a 13 years old from Ummu Hattu Mumini Jangeru Shinkafi LGA, took hold of the knowledge on bead making within a short period of time and being determined, Nasara was able to hand make necklaces with beads and earrings from the materials she was given to take home from the training.
Even though Hauwa’u Abdullahi is a 12-year-old schooling at Badamo Model Primary School Jangeru, Shinkafi LGA , she took up the challenge of teaching other girls. She intends to take advantage of the festive period to sell her bead work. Hauwa’u said “I bought stones for the bead work myself through the support I got from my parents but kept the strings from the training to make these colorful beads and I enjoy making them, I’m happy that I know something else aside assisting with house chores and learning ABC’ she concluded.
For Zaraú Basiru a 15-year-old resident of the same Jangeru community, who also attended the training, a student of Ummu Hattu Mumini IQS, said she mastered more the slippers while the training was going on with a determined mind that with this knowledge she wont walk barefooted to school again. I thank Allah for the G4G Project
