In many African communities, girls are still not considered children. They do not need to be sent to school, they have no inheritance and sometimes their mother is sent away for not being able to bear a male child. As if boys are better. Words will fail me to recount all the episodes we have had, for being just girls, at the time.
African students gave us their best, now we are giving them our best. The mentorship program of the #SHIPCampaign seeks to link our top 5 winners with very established and prominent professionals in Nigeria/Africa to enable a mentor-protege relationship for growth and personal development, especially career-wise.
To be part of it please look out cos in February 2018, the scholarships will rollout again
Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you winners, thank you judges, thank you mentors 🙂
