“It is thrilling to note that Plan International is implementing its projects in 14 of the 28 districts across the country. Plan is amplifying girls’ voice in policy and strategic formulation, and strengthening capacity of service providers and local stakeholders among many intervention areas,” she said.

Sendeza said the interventions by Plan International is implementing are creating a conducive environment for girls education in the country.

She, however, pleaded with the organization to focus on economic empowerment of women so that they may be able to sustain and retain the girls in schools to achieve their goals.

“As government, we look forward to more engagements with Plan International,” said Sendeza.
