The World Bank, Adolescent Girls Initiative and Empowerment (AGILE) is to construct 90 Junior Secondary Schools (JSS), 69 Senior Secondary Schools (SSS) and renovate 69 others in Kaduna State.
Habibu Alhassan, made this known in an interview In Kaduna on Wednesday.
Alhassan explained that the five-year project was designed to ensure that the girl child, aged 10 to 20 years was enrolled, retained, and supported to complete senior secondary school education.
He said that the construction of the new schools and the renovations of existing ones were to create additional learning space and make available spaces conducive and comfortable for the girl child to learn.
He added that the project would also provide a form of a scholarship to support girls that were prevented from attending schools due to hawking and other commercial activities at home.
This, according to him, will enable the parents to allow such girls to enrol in school, remain in school, complete secondary school education, and become useful to themselves, their family, and their community.
He also said that the project would equally empower the girl child with livelihood and life skills to enable her to live well in society.
