We want to better the life of the girl-child – Gbaramatu female graduates

…We are ready to partner with you in this regard – Jacob Abai

As part of their resolve to give back to the community, female graduates of Gbaramatu kingdom extraction have resolved that pulling together their resources in order to promote girl–child education in the kingdom remain their preoccupation.

Operating under the aegis of the National Association of Gbaramatu Female Graduates (NAGFG), the group led by its President, Mrs. Endurance Bekenawei Nwachukwu, stated this during a courtesy visit to the GbaramatuVoice Newspaper corporate headquarters in Warri on Wednesday.  

Speaking at the occasion, the group’s President explained that they are poised as a body to take the Gbaramatu Kingdom girls, via education, to the next level so that they compete favourably with their peers the world over and through that process become the leading voices in the community.

Nwachukwu pointed out that the group started as a student body but have since metamorphosed into an organized body that is out to empower the girl-child through education.

In her words, “we have come a long way. We started as a gathering of the National Association of Gbaramatu Female Students, and after graduation, we parted ways. But now, we have found it important to come together and form a formidable tie and contribute our quota towards the development of our dear community.

“Our aim,” she added “is to educate and encourage the female child in the society on the importance of education.”
