She Initiative

SHE Initiative

Since 2016, the SHE Initiative has offered over 2000 girls in Lagos State public schools unique opportunities to experience science and technology in relatable, interactive, and fun ways. Girls are immersed in a variety of hands-on learning activities designed to broaden their knowledge of the fields of science and technology, engage them in enquiry, stir their intellectual curiosity, build their confidence, apprise them of female role models in the field, and equip them with demonstrable skills in targeted areas of science and technology.

Ethics, leadership, and remedial education are important components of the SHE learning agenda which is delivered through residential science camps, in-school clubs, holiday camps, and single-gender science fairs.

SHE Initiative programs are delivered in partnership with the Lagos State Ministry of Education in schools across Lagos State.
