Making water a woman's business
Women are saddled with the responsibility to source for water for their households and so it is very important that in terms of making policies for the installation of water sources, our women are kept in the cycle of decision makers as they have an indepth knowledge of the kind of water that will be best suited for them, safe for children in terms of sourcing these waters as well as proximity to their homes such that they have enough time on their hands.
Providing access to safe clean drinking water just does not stop there but involves a whole lot of stakeholders that will ensure that the project is sustainable, viable and encompasses everyone.
We have more to come in terms of ensuring everyone in Northern Nigeria has access to water

There are currently over 15million out of school children in Northern Nigeria and 60% of this number are girls. Our girls are married off at young ages ranging from 9 years to 15 years without an opportunity to complete their education because of poverty thus leading to VVF and becoming outcast.
We identified a school in Kano and adopted three girls from vulnerable homes on scholarship uptill they finish Senior high and move on to tertiary institutions. The girls were selected due to their outstanding performance in studies (Arts, Science and Technology) and especially as they come from poor homes.
All of this are possible because of you as these girls have a bright future ahead and productive to the society.
