Accord-Bridge Foundation is a nonprofit organization instituted to facilitate the enhancement of the quality of life of disadvantaged women and girls across communities in Nigeria. This is our response to increasing poverty levels occasioned by increasing unemployment among these very vulnerable segments of the population.
ADOPT A GIRL PROGRAMME
This project offers one-on-one support, mentoring and training (innovation, goal-setting, and tenaciousness) to girls. The project seeks to help young girls transit from school into business entrepreneurship. We mentor girls to reach for their dreams and build better lives for themselves, their families, their communities and the Nigerian nation.
The foundation promotes and provides income generating skills for less privileged women and girls in communities across Nigeria. Our vocational training and support are tailored to needs. Our different livelihood skills under this initiative will ensure that women receive training on different vocations ranging from Cake making/decorations, pastry, soap making, shoe and bag making, bead-making, gift-bags designs, Tailoring etc., to enable them generate income and break free from dependency and poverty. The project also plans community networks for the participants where they share their experiences and inspire each other.
