According to our partner Girls Not Brides, education can be one of the most powerful tools to enable girls to avoid child marriage and fulfil their potential. The longer a girl stays in school, the less likely she is to be married before the age of 18 and have children during her teenage years.

When girls have access to safe, quality secondary education, the benefits are widely felt. Educated girls develop skills, knowledge and confidence to make informed decisions including if, when and whom to marry.

Being in school also supports the perception that girls are still children and are therefore not of a suitable age to marry.

STEM Girls Nigeria seeks to let girls stay in school, improve academic performance, empower girls and advance gender equality in girls’ education particularly in the field of Science & Technology.
