Dare to Dream?

According to Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Former United Nations Secretary-General, “Investing in girls is a moral imperative – a matter of basic justice and equality”. He also added “Every year that a girl stays in primary school boosts her eventual wages by up to 20 per cent. When women and girls earn income, they reinvest the vast majority – 90 per cent – back into their families. When female education goes up, so does economic growth.

NCTIG is committed in supporting organizations that help facilitate social change in communities everyday.  While we support the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), our focus aligns with organizations that are advocates of SDGs 4, and which promote quality education and gender equality especially for women, girls and children. We will continue to use our platform to raise awareness and highlight organizations that work tirelessly to ensure  that underprivileged children, girls and women have a voice.

We are especially excited to collaborate with Plan Canada to help raise funds for girls education in Northeast Nigeria (Borno & Yobe). Please see e-brochure for more details on how you can donate. All donations will be matched 5:1 by Global Affairs Canada to ensure maximum impact. You can also DONATE TO PLAN CANADA HERE.
