Through a collaborative partnership, Neem Foundation and Catena Foundation have created a safe, accessible and confidential space where learning and psychosocial support is delivered to 100 young girls who are victims of the Boko Haram crisis in North East Nigeria. The learning centre embeds concepts such as creativity, critical thinking, tolerance, character building, acceptance, etiquette, and hygiene. The Lafiya Sarari initiative also supports the development of life skills in the selected girls who currently have no access to education. The initiative improves the quality of their learning experiences and prevents radicalization by raising the overall standard of teaching. The initiative is designed to give beneficiaries a safe and supportive environment and the necessary tools to ensure that they succeed both in school and life in the future.
Since the commencement of Lafiya Sarari initiative, the project has been adjudged very successful by community stakeholders, actors in international development as well as government.
