WHY THIS FOUNDATION?
We believe in the saying: “Train a girl, build a nation”. (1) Women are generally economically disadvantaged in Nigeria = 11.7% women are represented on corporate boards (2) Very low literacy rates among the female population = 3:1 boys to girls with access to education (3) Female abuse pre- dominant in rural and semi-urban areas (4) Less attention paid to educating girls on topics of personal care (5) Interpersonal skills is the bedrock of success.
WHAT ARE THE Benefits Of Training A Girl?
- A beneficial investment to the development of the country effective participation in society ii. Development of essential life skills & self confidence iii. Reduced maternal mortality rates iv. Poverty reduction and income generation v. Protection against sexual exploitation vi. Increased national wealth from controlled health status
For the purpose of building females that will be leaders of tomorrow and reaching out to as many as
1,000 – 2000 in the next year.
Our Gallant Graces Empowerment Workshop-Galant Graces G.O.L.D Drive is tagged #/ivingmydream.
We educate our girls to inspire them to live their dream. We aim to educate females on various areas that will help them boost their confidence and self-esteem. Many young females would like to develop themselves and achieve something in life but lack the opportunity, finances and moral support. Soft interpersonal skills in line with goal potential sets the first stage of our E-Road Map. Knowledge Is Power, in every form, frame or size. The use of knowledge is the secret to success. We hope to set the tone for transformational growth. Every girl will become a Gallant Graces Angel at the completion of each workshop.

We equip our girls to provide the tools for success in life. There is no better way to support learning than to equip one with the right tools to forge forward.
Every girl is equipped with a grooming to start the journey of cleanliness, hygiene and personal care.
