Highlighting the importance of the outreach programme to the making of a responsible society, she noted that the Nigerian society is one in which girls are highly vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Consequently, she said girls need the right information to be able to negotiate their rights with other members of the society who might want to use the girls vulnerability to gain advantage.
She added that the training received during the programme would also enable the graduands utilize opportunities that may come their way.
“These are things that are not contained in the everyday curricular in schools, she said, adding that the graduates are supposed to be fear educators.
