Women and Girls Access to Quality Education Services
NANA believes UN declaration that every child has a right to education, not only right to education but equally important is her right to quality education. This is because education is more than just a right it is the root to successful and productive life. Ajayi and Afolabi (2009:34-36) stated that education is largely perceived in Nigeria as an indispensable tool which will not only assist in meeting the nation’s social, political, moral, cultural and economic aspirations but will also inculcate in the individual knowledge, skills, dexterity, character and desirable values that will foster national development and self-actualization. It is clear that education trains an individual to be useful in the society and to meet up the need of the society for national development. Therefore without education, a nation cannot get the needed manpower for material advancement and enlightenment of the citizenry. The trained engineers, teachers, medical doctors are all the products of education. This explains that the quality of a nation’s education determines the level of its national development. Consequently, the high number of out of school children is absolutely unacceptable to NANA. The situation is worst for the girls and hence forth the focus for NANA. NANA is also working on women sexual and reproductive health issues. With specific focus on reducing maternal mortality rate in Kebbi State. The project will campaign against maternal mortality by holding actors accountable for maternal death in the state, promote women’s human right to life and dignity, as well as carry out other intervention programs that will reduce maternal mortality in the state.Our primary target beneficiaries would be women and girls within productive age, and others would be stakeholders that will help promote women’s human right to life and dignity
