According to the vice president, IA-Foundation has made a remarkable impact in reducing the number of girls who are unable to access education, due to poverty, insecurity or poor orientation about the importance of acquiring education.
In his words, “Given the number of girls who remain out of school in our country and may never have the opportunity of formal education, girl-child education is an all-important assignment.
“I whole-heartedly commend the commitment and dedication that IA-Foundation has deployed so far in getting our girls educated.’’
