Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Adult Education, Education, Elementary & Secondary Schools, Higher Education, Literacy

Mission: Girls Education Mission International was emerged out of a pressing need among young women and girls who face gender-based discrimination and are therefore deprived of education and training opportunities to attain a better life. As a non profit, non-governmental organization aim for the betterment of humanity particularly the life of the Girl child, Girls Education Mission International envisions a World where girls become Women of Integrity, Vision and Impact. We want to see girls and women creating change and making lasting impact in their respective communities. We are on a mission to reach out to and advance the circumstances of girls who are not provided with strong motivation to reach potentials. We have a global mandate to establish empowered teams of young women and girls with relevant knowledge and practical skills that will enable them transform their lives and influencing their communities for good. We are intentionally inspired to equip girls to pass forward what they have learned, becoming productive citizens and visionary leaders capable of shaping sustainable society. Thus our motto "To be Willing, Equipped and Available.." Dreamt and begun in 2007, Girls Education Mission International was officially registered in 2011 in Nigeria with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) with registration number (CAC/IT/NO 45818). It was also registered with the Special Control Unit Against Money Laundering (SCUML) of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with registration number (RN:SC 321400084). Despite improvements in global and national laws and policies that provide the normative framework for women to advance their rights, it is imperative to acknowledge that a vast number of girls continue to experience violence and gender discrimination at home, in schools and in their communities especially when it comes to getting an education. As part of our smart and creative strategy to better the lives of humanity, we are committed to eradicating poverty, building peace and creating sustainable impact among young women and girls using education to achieve this aim. We believe that girls education and empowerment is the vital tool to harness innovation to improvise novel solution that are not only smart and creative but also more effective, efficient and just in achieving demonstrable results when it comes to tackling the challenges continue to face globally. GEM works directly with girls, parents, teachers, and community leaders, all of whom are the ultimate drivers and stewards of meaningful change for themselves, their families and their communities.

Results: Renowned for its innovative and preventative girl child education barriers efforts, starting with 15 Girls in 2006, today, vulnerable girls and women around Nigeria and beyond have been provided with quality integrated package of; livelihood to 60 households; Scholarship to 110 girls; Sanitary pads distributed to 150 girls; Literacy and Vocational training to 820 women/girls; Entrepreneurship and mentoring to 530 individuals and 3 staff with over 40 national and international volunteers/partners called ‘GEM Impact Ambassadors’. The global campaign #GirlsEducationNowOrNever launched in 2014 has since been adopted and spreading like wild fire within and outside Nigeria.

Target demographics: Since 2007, Girls Education Mission International has been providing vulnerable girls with integrated package of education, skills, livelihood and necessary support they need to transform their lives and world around them. At the center of GEM activities is a strategy that activates girls, schools, communities, and households to reach out to and advance the circumstances of girls principally through Girls Impact Clubs (GICs). GICs ensure girls get the high quality package of support they need to reach full potentials. At the same time, GICs provides girls a platform to express their life’s concerns, hopes, dreams, fears and challenges they face, and gather their thought and opinions on what they think could help address them. Designed for both in-and-out-of-school girls, GEM supports GICs that engage vulnerable girls in Nigeria, Africa and of course all over the globe.

Geographic areas served: Nigeria

Programs: Given the high vulnerability levels of girls that GEM supports, Empowerment is a key intervention across all programs. Our services includes: Education and empowerment grant, vocational and literacy training, mentoring and capacity building, leadership training and advocacy.

A female/girl is the mother of a Nation. when she is given knowledge; she will change the world in a second. The female nature of anxiety, gentleness and being Visionary, is what we need to change the environment we live in and she will teach this to her descendants. Girls Education Mission International is already on this mission and we need to support its work in all areas possible.
