Skills acquisition training

Training of skills is also a big part of the GCC Girls’ Academy goals. We believe in making our girls to be productive and learn to keep busy and self-reliant after school. Therefore, these girls are being trained on the making of liquid soap, Izal disinfectant and Vaseline. The training of these items was conducted by Hajiya Aishatu Muhammad Biu. Now our girls can do all of the above by themselves. Examples of these products can be seen in the pictures displayed

Together, we can educate the girl child. Over the years GCC as an organization has trained girls across Northern part of Nigeria in education and livelihoods skills but there are so many more vulnerable girls in the IDP camps and across the Country who need support.

Sports

Sporting activities are revered at the academy because we understand the importance of youth sports participation. Sporting activities are a fun way to increase physical activity and develop lifelong habits for good health. They also help develop self-control, persistence, team work and accountability. Our girls at the academy participate in football, volleyball and running.

Give a little love to a child, and you get a great deal back.
