F & R Projects recently held an event to commemorate the International Day of the Girl Child, which was observed worldwide on Thursday, October 11th, 2018.
The Day of Girls Event saw us partner with Slum2School, to organize a book reading with over 100 underprivileged school girls between ages 11-16 from schools all around Lagos state.
A project funded primarily by the support and donations of corporate and individual patrons, with the aim of creating a better world for everyone by actively working to improve the welfare and enforce the human rights of the girl child.
Girls at this event were opportune to meet with successful women and some of their favourite female celebrities who read, mentored these girls and handed out back to school packs and books provided by the donations of the Patrons, to encourage and facilitate literacy of the girl child
