Tariro

The well being 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 1451 women of childbearing age everyday due to pregnancy-related complications and an estimated 20% (10 million)2 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 education and women represent between 60-79 % 3 of Nigeria’s rural labor force. Chestrad Global, a multi-country social enterprise, and her partners commit to a world where no woman, girl or child is left behind, or denied access to inputs they need to survive, thrive and excel. Today, Chestrad Global presents Tariro to the support of girls, women and children in Nigeria. Tariro will reach 500,000 women and through them 2,000, 000 children in Lagos, and other states in Nigeria. The project is scheduled for 2.5 years (July 2020 to Jan 2023)
