What We Do
GRIKOB Foundation supports hundreds of rural women groups and needy but brilliant ladies by assisting them through vocational/ skill training, capacity building/entrepreneur support and sponsorship for brilliant girls through both secondary and tertiary education.
How We Work
It might sound quite ironical but most deprived people in the world are economically active. This situation is worst of in the rural areas where women and children tend to be marginalized. Though economically active most women in rural areas all over the world are unable to exploit their full potential due to factors such as;
• Outmoded socio-cultural practices
• Over dependence on men
• Lack of access to credit facilities
• Lack of vocational and professional knowledge and skills
• Lack of knowledge and understanding on opportunities available to them and most importantly
• Non commitment to formal education
These factors among others deepens the woes of most rural women and make them vulnerable. GRIKOB employs multi disciplinary approaches towards helping to liberate women from these setbacks. Some key intervention the Foundation pursues include the following;
*School visitations and role modeling for up and coming girls
*Training and equipping of rural women beyond school going age with requisite vocational skills
*Liaison between women groups and financial institutions so as to increase access to credit facilities
*Sponsor needy but brilliant girls through secondary and tertiary education *Undertake public adult education to educate rural women on tropical issues among others .
All these activities are undertaken with the help of our partners and sponsors.
