Girl child education receives boost with Etisalat Career Day in Dala, Kano State

Statistics reveal that an increasing number of female children in Northern Nigeria don’t have access to education, and for those that are privileged to make it as far as secondary school, don’t go further to universities.

Based on this, Nigeria’s youth centric telecommunications company Etisalat is placing special emphasis on girl child education through specialized outreaches such as its Career Day which it organizes across the country to enlighten students and help them discover their interest and reach their potential.

On the choice of Government Girl’s College, Dala in Kano State for the event, Manager, Corporate Social Responsibility, Oyetola Oduyemi said the school was chosen as part of the company’s contribution to reverse the twin problem of low enrolment of girls from Northern Nigeria schools as well as lack of interest to advance their education beyond secondary school.
“When students are not aware of the career options out there, or when they lack in-depth knowledge on what it takes to succeed in these areas, then they are likely to make wrong career choices. With Career Counseling, Etisalat is out to make sure students nationwide have the required information to enable them choose appropriate career paths later in life,” She added.

The school authorities showed their appreciation to Etisalat calling the initiative a major step towards solving one of the challenges the state faces in the education sector in Kano State, which is education of the girl child.

Since launched in 2010, Etisalat Nigeria has through its Career Counselling Programme reached over 8,000 students at the secondary schools in the junior and senior levels across Nigeria with knowledge that can help them make sound, positive and informed career decisions.
