  • Introduction
    Mercy Corps has been working in Nigeria since 2012. In Nigeria, our programs currently focus on conflict mitigation, markets and economic development, girls’ education, and financial inclusion. Mercy Corps is partnering with the MacArthur Foundation through the Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (PSIPSE) in the Girls Opportunities for Advancing Literacy (GOAL) program, to increase girls financial literacy and economic assets in secondary education in Kano State, Nigeria.
    The Girls Opportunities for Advancing Literacy (GOAL) program addresses several challenges faced by girls in Nigeria by ensuring secondary education for marginalized girls is equitable and scalable by increasing girls’ learning outcomes and directly supporting girls’ increased control of economic assets. GOAL will increase financial literacy and labor-market relevant skills for 1,800 marginalized female junior and senior school students (ages 16 to 19) in Ministry of Education and Islamiyya schools in Kano State.
    GOAL will provide beneficiaries with intensive business and entrepreneurship, leadership and life skills training. The girls will undergo different learning sessions with; academic modules 50%, financial education 25%, life skills and business education 25%. The learning sessions will occur at safe spaces after school for 2 hours weekly for 9 months. The girls who participate in the GOAL program will receive SMS messages, the SMS messages that will be sent to the girls will be related to topics covered at the safe spaces each week. Quizzes will be sent through SMS to the girls on a monthly basis. The girls will be expected to respond to the messages they receive. All responses will be received and analyzed. The purpose of the SMS is to reinforce learning received in the learning space centres and influence the girls outside the learning space centres.
