As one of the topmost international schools in Abuja, Start-Rite Schools is committed to empowering girls with the necessary skills and leadership opportunities where their voices would be heard and counted. On this note, Start-Rite commemorated the International Day of the Girl 2021 with the theme, “Digital Generations, Our Generation.”
According to the late Director, Mrs Amaka Ndoma-Egba, the International Day of the Girl reminds us of the need to create and sustain the enabling environments for girls to realise that education is their sure path to self-sufficiency and is a strategic development priority.
Noting that the United States of America (USA) is committed to uplifting the rights of girls around the world, Start-Rite Schools had the honour of hosting Mr Peter Burba, the Assistant Cultural Affairs Officer at the US Embassy Abuja. He shared a few words of inspiration with our students. Afterwards, we discussed partnership possibilities to create opportunities for our students in Years 10, 11 and 12 towards their tertiary education.
