The wellbeing of girls, women and children in every society is a collective responsibility. They are the pillars of socioeconomic development of any nation. In Nigeria, women and girls find it difficult to complete their education, find gainful employment and access global markets for their commodities; they further experience challenges to access quality healthcare and financial support. Nigeria loses 145 women of childbearing age everyday due to pregnancy-related complications and an estimated 20% (10 million) of the world’s out of school children is Nigerian, 60% (6 million of whom are girls). Furthermore, only 35.6% of children aged 36-59 months in Nigeria attend any early learning education2 and women represent between 60-79% of Nigeria’s rural labor force.
