The World Bank has approved a $500 million credit for the Adolescent Girls Initiative for Learning and Empowerment (AGILE) towards improving secondary education opportunities among girls in seven states of the country.

The project would support access to secondary education and empowerment for adolescent girls in seven states namely Kano, Kebbi, Kaduna, Katsina, Borno, Plateau and Ekiti.

A statement from the bank in Abuja said the credit was approved from its International Development Association (IDA) which provides grants to developing countries.

The grants are with low to zero-interest loans for projects and programmes that contribute to economic growth and improve the livelihood of the populace in such nations.

The AGILE project is expected to use secondary as a platform to empower girls through education, life skills, health education, Gender-Based Violence awareness and prevention, negotiations skills, self-agency and digital literacy skills.

According to the statement, a minimum of six million girls and boys are expected to benefit from the project, and many more students are expected to continue benefiting after the project ends.

World Bank Country Director for Nigeria, Shubham Chaudhuri,  said, “there is no better investment to accelerate Nigeria’s human capital development than to significantly boost  girls’ education. The AGILE project will enable Nigeria to make progress in improving access and quality of education for girls, especially in northern Nigeria. Addressing the key structural impediments in a comprehensive way will create the enabling environment to help Nigeria ensure better outcomes for girls, which will translate into their ability to contribute to productivity and better economic outcomes for themselves and the country.”

It added that the project would benefit about 6.7 million adolescents and 15.5 million direct project beneficiaries would include families and communities in participating states.

It also said that the project had been adapted to respond to COVID-19 and would support a blended learning approach using technology and media (TV and radio) to implement remote and distance learning programs.

“The AGILE project will expand existing primary and Junior Secondary Schools (JSSs) to include both JSSs and Senior Secondary Schools to make schools functional, safe, and inclusive to teaching and learning.

“This entails building more than 5,500 JSSs and 3,300 classrooms for SSSs, as well as improving 2,786 Junior Secondary and 1,914 Senior Secondary schools with safe, accessible, and inclusive infrastructure.”

Furthermore, it stated that about 340,000 girls would receive life skills training which would incorporate health information and key information on climate change, safety and gender-based violence awareness.

  1. Your website has certainly provided me personally
    with just simply the information that I just required.
    I currently have been doing exploration upon this kind of topic for
    a short time, and it has taken a long time to find a blog that gives all of the data which
    i need. We take a look toward reading more weblogs written by you later on,

  2. I can’t believe almost everything we get bothered about in life matters.

    All the time spent taking into consideration the several things that we encounter every day is going to be undoubtedly necessary, as no other woman will
    face your life for us. Personally I think that
    people must be even more mentally stable. Knowledge
    is terrific, yet a lot of what we think about is so abstract.
    Having a cup of coffee is a zen activity that brings one back again to the present moment.

    We must be more in the here and now, without being confused by life and the crises we experience each day. http://Una-Gp.org/global.initiative/index.php?itemid=46

  3. I cannot believe anything we challenge ourselves with
    in life matters. Continuously squandered taking into consideration the numerous things that people confront each and
    every working day can be really important, as no other man is going to encounter existence for us.
    Personally I think that people young and old ought to be more
    grounded. Knowledge is excellent, yet so much of whatever you
    think about is so abstract. Having a cup of coffee is a zen process that takes one back again to the present instant.

    We must become more in the here and today, without being overcome by life and the drama we deal with
    each day. http://lupus.workup.it/index.php?a%5B%5D=%3Ca+href%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fcareersdojo.com%2Fjobs%2Fday-spa-massage%2F%3EcareersDOJO%3C%2Fa%3E
