The Keeping Girls in School (KGIS) project, under an NGO, Girls Child Concerns, says it is collaborating with traditional and religious leaders to sensitise communities in Zamfara to the impact of Girl-Child Education.
“We have conducted advocacy training with traditional and religious leaders at community level.
“We also conducted meeting with women and youth groups from the two LGAs on the same objective.
“We are expecting these groups to cascade what they have learned from the training to people at grassroots through sensitisation and creation of awareness.
“We paid advocacy visit to Emirs of Anka and Bakura, Alhaji Attahiru Ahmad and Muhammad-Bello Sani, respectively.
“We had fruitful discussions with the royal fathers; they encourage us and assured us of their maximum support and cooperation,” Sada said.
The team leader appealed to stakeholders, especially parents and guardians, to support advocacy groups to promote future of the girl-child and women in the society. (NAN)
