Thank you for the incredible year 2019!

Happy New Year! Happy start to our Decade of Possibilities. Greetings on behalf of all of us at Girls Education Mission International. What an incredible year we leave behind us! The Year 2019 took us around 16  States in Nigerian including the FCT Abuja and one State in the Sierra Leone.  Together, we mobilized, inspired and  speed up our mission to  have reached out to over 10,000 people. The momentum is huge. There is much more in store for the onward journey of always soaring aspirations and inspiring actions.  Our Decade of Possibilities is in our hands and  we are starting now as we swing into the New year in a good note.

 

Take a look of the incredible moments that your support made possible in 2019.
