‘A 2013 UNESCO fact sheet on primary schooling reported that in Nigeria about five and a half million girls of primary school age are not in school.’ Nigeria has the highest number of child brides in the world. Any country that wants to see meaningful development should empower the girl child through quality education. An educated woman is more confident and resourceful to make a progressive family and a successful nation.
According to National Bureau of Statistics, from the first quarter of 2015, to the second quarter of 2016, the unemployed population in Nigeria has moved from 2, 445,840 to 5,764,191. The unemployment rate right now is 32.6%, the highest so far in the history of Nigeria. What this means is that the youths should be taught to be self-reliant and have various options to deal with the issues of life, hence the need for youth empowerment.
The Complete Life organization started in 2015 as a motivational and educative website geared towards building and influencing the masses, especially the youths positively for all round productivity. This organization has given birth to CL-GEYEF; a non-governmental organization with the desire to see every girl child educated and given a future, and the youths empowered to think and act as the leaders of tomorrow.
