“The objective of the programme is to mobilise and promote access to quality learning for all Girl-Child in the focal states. “GEP is a project managed by UNICEF, funded by Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO). “I am impressed with what I have seen on the ground in Katsina state with the mobilisation of 270, 000 Girl-Child to schools,” Banda said. Hajiya Zainab Kaita, acting Director, Planning and Statistics (PRS), SUBEB, Katsina state, told NAN that they had been working round the clock to meet the target in their collaboration for the enrolment of the girl-child into schools “The number of girl-child and that of the boys in most of our schools is now almost the same,” Kaita said.
