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.


 

5-Day Athletics Camp

Through LGRRG’s 5-Day Athletic Camp, we hope to help girls discover the joy in being active. At the camp, girls aged 9-12 will be introduced to athletics and basketball, and have a chance to improve their skills all while having fun. Also during the camp, the girls will participate in interactive workshops that are designed to help them feel more confident as they navigate adolescence.

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.
