We are investing over NGN 38,000,000 in hygiene packs, face mask, sanitisers, health awareness communications including safe distancing floor markers and hand wash points across some of the various locations where we currently run the Goal program.

For over 10 years, the Goal program in Nigeria has combined sports with life, vocational and financial skills training to empower girls with the resources they need to be integral economic leaders in their families and communities. We are optimistic about the impact this initiative will have in ensuring fewer exposures of the COVID19 virus to the students, their teachers and by extension their families especially those in the rural communities.

This initiative builds on the Bank’s track record of supporting adolescent girls, employable youths and women through various financing and capacity building initiative and serves as one of the ways we remain Here for good in our communities.
