Empowering Girls through education

Foosteer Initiative is an indigenous non-profit organization that tackles poverty and inequality by supporting girls to go to school and succeed, and empowering young women to step up as leaders of change.

Foostee Initiative invests in girls and women in the poorest rural communities in Nigeria, where girls face acute disadvantage, and where their empowerment is now transforming communities.
Since 2015, Foosteer Initiative’s innovative education programs in Ajaokuta, and Lokoja communities of Kogi State have directly supported over 1500 students to attend primary and secondary school, and over 3000 children have benefited from improved learning environments.

Foosteer Initiative believes that every child is entitled to a quality education in a safe environment and a life as an independent young adult. Foosteer Initiative directly supports girls because they are the first to drop out of school, and the first to be failed by the system, facing the perils of early marriage, early pregnancy and HIV/AIDS.
