Nigerian media personality Bisola won ONE’s Back to School presentation task as part of the ONE Campaign’s #GirlsCount focusing on girls education. The #GirlsCount Campaign recognises that globally, 130 million girls are out of school and asks citizens of the world to count them, one-by-one, while urging our leaders to act. The ONE Campaign also provides a chance for all Nigerians to join the #GirlsCount campaign and win.
Bisola’s winning presentation called on Nigerian policymakers to prioritise girls’ education. As part of the collaboration between Big Brother Naija and ONE, housemates were asked to put together a presentation based on information and statistics about girls’ education in Nigeria from ONE’s Poverty is Sexist policy report. The aim of the task was to call on the Nigerian Federal and State government to prioritise girls’ education. As part of the task, housemates highlighted the barriers to girls’ education in Nigeria and presented possible solutions to ensuring every girl in Nigeria completes primary and secondary school.
All Nigerians and followers of BBNaija also have a chance to win. Every week, one Nigerian citizen who joins the #GirlsCount campaign stands a chance to win ONE merchandise which includes: t-shirts, caps wristbands and more. To join the #GirlsCount campaign, post a video or picture online with a message on girls education. Get creative!
