The Development Research and Projects Centre (dRPC) has trained 40 female students to become entrepreneurs by establishing Early Child Development (ECD) schools in Kano and Jigawa states.
The beneficiaries were those who failed the required credits in either West African Examination Council (WAEC) or National Examination Council (NECO) and could not proceed to gain admission into tertiary institutions.
The training with support from the MacArthur Foundation under its Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (PSIPSE) promotes advocacy to ensure people do not see failure as the last stop.
Speaking to newsmen during a visit to some ECD centres in the two states dRPC, education liaison officer Malam Suleiman Mahmud, said: “Under the project, girls from Kano and Jigawa states with three credits who were staying at home idle were selected and invited for screening with the aim of providing the successful ones with ECD support items and take off fund.
“With these they then establish their ECD schools at either their houses or any other place deemed comfortable within their residing community after undergoing an organized training on teaching and ECD school management,” he said.
