Adawiyya Girls Academy
Minanata, Sokoto State.
This school is named after Rabiatu Adawiyya. Despite her lack of formal education, this woman recognised the value of learning. Her heart was set on funding higher education for females, especially those from low-income families. The desire to do so was a driving force in forming the partnership with Text Foundation.
Adawiyya Girls Academy is a cutting-edge institution that employs innovative pedagogical strategies to deliver a first-rate education to young women from economically disadvantaged homes. The institution has a special program to teach women business skills. In addition to helping the community, empowering these women would also help guarantee that more children come from financially stable homes.
