Our Projects

Building upon schools and facilities already in place, LGRRG leverages both public and private partnerships and challenges others to commit resources to improve the trajectory of these girls’ lives.

 

Leadership Academy For Girls

With your help and contributions, LGRRG will build a girls-only primary school in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria.  We hope to provide educational and leadership opportunities for academically gifted girls from impoverished backgrounds who exhibit qualities to make a difference in the world.


 

2-Day SPORT x STEM CAMP

LGRRG is teaming up with Gear ‘Em Up and Global Air Drone Academy for a 2-day SPORT x STEM Camp n Lagos, Nigeria this December. We will host 100 targeted adolescent boys and girls, to engage in sports development, self-empowerment sessions, and a drone building and racing activity. We hope to expose the campers to the joy and opportunity that athletics and STEM subjects bring. The campers we will affect will be those from neighboring towns and villages of Lagos, Nigeria.

The Farming Initiative

The Farming Initiative is a community group comprised of approximately 40 local women from the Uyo community. Formed with the support of LGRRG, these women seek to improve their lives and well-being through various income-producing farm-based activities.  Financial support for the program and its initiatives, is funded through a micro-financing partnership established and managed by LGRRG.
