The Girl Without Education

About

The Community-led Collective Action for Girls Education (C-CAGE) is a three-year project conceptualized by African Centre for Leadership, Strategy & Development (Centre LSD) to address the root causes of barriers to girl-child education with the goal of increasing the rate of girls' enrolment and retention in public primary and secondary schools in Numan, Song and Maiha Local Government Areas of Adamawa State, Nigeria.

 

These LGAs were  deliberately selected for the project to have presence in the three senatorial districts in Adamawa State.
The project which has the funding support of Malala Fund will challenge systems and structures that have tended to exacerbate the preponderance of out-of-school children especially that of the girl child. The idea of the Community-Led Collective Action for Girls
Education (C-CAGE) project is to Strengthen Systems and Cultural Norms that Encourage Girl-Child Enrolment and Retention of Secondary School Education in Adamawa State.
