The well-being of girls, women and children in every society is a collective responsibility. They are the pillars of the socio-economic 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 every day 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 labour force.
