Research has shown that majority of the world's poorest and illiterate are rural women and girls as they lack access to educational rights, right to work, or own a business, make decisions for themselves and contribute to community development. Also children are deprived of basic education and instead sent to work on farmlands or hawk on the streets.
In Nigeria, women and girls are perceived as weak, relegated to the background and are the most vulnerable and disadvantaged constituents in population as they are not opportuned to harness their potentials. At Youngpearl, we believe empowering women and girls will enable them to be independent, bold, own and run successful ventures, participate in community politics and contribute actively to development which will enhance the growth of their various communities.
Hence, our main strategy is formal education for children and girls, community programming and advocacy, vocational training, social change programs and seminars as well as mentoring.
We work with a team that comprise of mentors, skill acquisition coaches, community facilitators, healthcare and nutrition specialists, monitoring and evaluation experts.Contact Us
