The charity I am promoting this month is Yarang Llamisi Foundation. This is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation, set up in 2020, to empower, equip, and educate women and girls of Zambuk town, in Gombe State, Nigeria. It is a registered charity in Nigeria and England, with a focus on providing secondary school education to young girls as well as vocational training. The vocational training is also available to the women of the community. There is also a “second chance entrepreneurial project” available to the women of Zambuk town and surrounding villages. This project gives the women a second chance to set up a business or grow an existing business.
Yarang Llamisi Foundation
Yarang Llamisi Foundation is a charity I am passionate about because it focuses on some of the least privileged people in society. Female children are after left behind when it comes to education in Africa. These young girls end up being forced to go into early marriages. This cycle carries on from generation to generation, with no end in sight. Providing free education and voluntary training will keep the young girls in school and equip them with the skills needed to excel in life.
Education is the pathway to a better life with better job prospects. If you want to give a girl-child a good life, you should give her the gift of formal education. The voluntary training also helps the children and women develop life skills that will come in handy. Educating the women and children of the community will elevate not just their families but the entire community. This is one of the reasons why I Yarang Llamisi Foundation is a blessing to the people of Zambuk town and beyond.
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend.
