Review for Girls Education Mission International, Jos, , Nigeria
My Experience with GEM
My name is Ayandeji Bunmi Abigail,
I came in contact with Girls Education Mission International in July 2019. I was invited by my sister in law to attend Shine the Light Sisters annual anniversary which was marked with 3days skills acquisition program and talk show. The executive Director of GEM Mrs keturah Shammah was invited to come and share her stories and also inspired women to always believe in themselves. After listening to her stories, I decided to volunteers with GEM with the aim to use my skills and abilities to help women and girls to achieve their goals in life.
Ever since then,my experience and work with GEM has been productive, challenging and educative at every aspect and stages. I have attended series of trainings,events, seminars and also takes different course online in order to enrich my knowledge and also to help me perform my work better.
With my work with GEM, I have witnessed GEM provide mentorship programs for women and girls, paid NECO fee for over 100 secondary school girls in six local government areas in plateau state, distributed sanitary pads, grant scholarships, organised skills acquisition programs, provide sustainability programs among others.
GEM is passionate about women's and girls and they ensure to recognize important days in the lives of these women and girls. Such days include: International Day of the Girls Child, International Day of African Child, International women's Day, World Hygiene Day and so much more.
My work with GEM has been full of wealth of experience of a life time.
