Mrs. Amina Ahmed, Director of the Women Initiative for Sustainable Community Development, a non-governmental organisation, has urged the government and stakeholders to advocate for more women’s education in rural areas.
In order to provide rural women and girls with equal opportunities, Ahmed stated that more funding should be directed toward their education in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Jos.
She claimed that education would give them the ability to communicate with the rest of the world through technology and innovation.
According to the director, education would help to communicate the numerous challenges that women and girls face around the world.
She said the women’s day theme –“Digit All, Digital innovation and technology for gender equality” –focused on creating an enabling environment for women to use their technological space.
Ahmed said the recent cash policy was an example of technology innovation and could be taken to the locals through education.
“We are in the era of technology and the knowledge must be spread across every people everywhere,” said Ahmed.
She said that digital education would enable women to achieve gender equality and also enable them balance their homes and business from the confines of their homes. (NAN)
