Gender Mainstreaming: Edo Govt’s Reopening Of Adult Learning Centres Excites Female Beneficiaries

BENIN CITY – Efforts to drive gender mainstreaming in Edo State have been commended by female beneficiaries of the re-opening of the Adult and Non-Formal Education centres across the state, who say that the centres have given them another opportunity to go to school while taking care of their families.

They said the re-opening of the centres after ten years will bridge the gender gap and encourage enrollment of more females, especially those who were not opportune to get formal education earlier in life.

Mrs. Deborah Ifeanyi commended the state government for the rare privilege given to women in Edo State to get educated, urging for the sustenance of the scheme, as it will have a strong impact on their lives.

“With the centres in place, women will become more aware of happenings in the society and be able to contribute to the development of the state,” she said.

“We are going to do everything to ensure that the programme is sustained to achieve the desired objectives,” she assured.

Chairman, Igueben Local Government Area, Hon. Jossie Ogedegbe, said the adult education programme was reactivated after his resumption as council boss, as he considered it important to bring such an opportunity closer to the people....
