Statement On The Girls Education Forum – HE Toyin Ojora Saraki

I would like to formally congratulate Global Citizens Chime For Change and
the UK Department for International Development on organising the Girls’
Education Forum. As a committed supporter of the United Nations Secretary General’s Every Woman Every Child Effort, and champion of #HeForShe and Let Girls Learn, I believe we should empower our daughters with education as
their weapon through life.

There is a critical need for all of us internationally to come together and
empower women and girls. Education is the key to this and should be
championed as the vital solution to many gender equality issues such as
under aged brides, sexual violence, the inequities of access to quality health
and the overriding conditions of poverty.
Beyond the primary challenge of girl child retention in education, at home in
Nigeria, in Africa, and around the world, girls miss school, interrupting their education, due to the unavailability of information, secure sanitary infrastructures, and products to guarantee menstrual hygiene; we can change this by engaging skilled midwives in adolescent health, through the adoption of the Midwifery Services Framework espoused by the International
Confederation of Midwives, whose goals I support as Global Goodwill
Ambassador, with my Wellbeing Foundation Africa matching our words with concrete actions, to engender better global outcomes for girls education.
