A UNICEF project has encouraged 650,000 female students to enroll in school.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report about female enrollment in school.

In Niger state, the UN Children’s Education Fund’s (UNICEF) education project has successfully enrolled 650,000 girls. This is a significant accomplishment given the fact that, in Niger, there is a large gender gap in education. In fact, according to UNICEF, only about 39% of girls in Niger are enrolled in primary school. This project is therefore an important step in ensuring that girls in Niger have access to education. The project has been successful in enrolling girls from all across Niger. It has also been successful in reaching girls from all different socioeconomic backgrounds. This is important because it ensures that all girls in Niger have the opportunity to get an education.

In light of the fact that there is a huge educational disparity between the sexes in Niger, this is a remarkable achievement.

I’m happy this is happening. Females have been sidelined for long. It is a good thing they are now enrolled in schools. It shows we are evolving from our dubious cultural norms.
