GIRL CHILD CONCERNS MONTHLY SCHOOL VISITATION AND SAFE SPACES

Girl Child Concerns (GCC) Visitation Team With Beneficiaries of the Organization's Scholarship Scheme during the Recent School Visit To Different Schools. It was a down pour of happiness for the girls under the Girl Child Concerns (GCC) Female Student Scholarship Scheme (FSSS) when GCC staff visited them in their various schools during their monthly visiting day. For boarders generally, visiting days are very special days. They usually prepare themselves very early with so much excitement and hang around the school gate so that they can easily be found by their  family and friends.
 
The GCC team happens to be more than just a sponsor to it's beneficiaries... We are family! especially for those girls from the IDP camps.
We had delicious homemade food, lots of drinks, provision and some other 'girl-child' needs taken to them on this day. It was indeed a relief day for GCC beneficiaries having gone through lots of academic rigor. The girls expressed their excitement with lots of prayers for GCC. They ate, drank and had a chit-chat with the visitors and the male staff stepped aside after a while to allow the girls and the female staff discuss personal issues concerning the students. Indeed their happiness knows no bound. The joy for the GCC team from seeing these girls happy is like no ordinary one. Given the support they needed, the girls are now happy and very much interested to study compared to the time they were taken to school. The shy ones are now confident and the sad ones now have reasons to smile.
We must also commend the efforts of the school principals who have helped immensely in seeing that these girls attain success in life. In her remark with the girls in departure, the program officer of GCC Hajia Umma-Iliyasu-Muhammed commended the girls and challenged them to study harder so as to be good girl ambassadors of not only GCC but the nation at large.
