Two Nigerians emerge as Malala Fund’s Gulmakai Network champions

- Advertisment -
Malala Fund has announced the induction of Habiba Mohammed and Rotimi Olawale into the inaugural class of Gulmakai Network champions.
The Gulmakai Network is Malala Fund’s ambitious new initiative that invests in education activists working in countries where girls face the greatest barriers to education.
Habiba Mohammed is the co-director of Centre of Girls’ Education (CGE) in Nigeria. Before joining CGE nine years ago, Habiba was a teacher for 16 years. With her Gulmakai Network grant, she plans to develop an e-learning package for rural communities and help out-of-school girls in northern Nigeria return to the classroom.
Rotimi Olawale is the co-founder of YouthHubAfrica, an online platform to engage young people in social change. He has more than 10 years of experience in youth advocacy and development work. Rotimi will use his Gulmakai Network grant to advocate for passage of the Child Rights Act in Nigeria.
Speaking on the beneficiaries’ contributions, Philippa Lei, Malala Fund Interim CEO said “Malala Fund is proud to support remarkable leaders like Habiba in our inaugural class of Gulmakai Network champions,”
“We believe these activists share the same spirit and vision as our co-founders Malala and Ziauddin Yousafzai. We know our investment in their work will help speed up progress for girls’ secondary education around the world.”
On Olawale, he said that the fund “is proud to support remarkable leaders like Rotimi in our inaugural class of Gulmakai Network champions,”
Malala Fund plans to grow the Gulmakai Network, investing up to $10 million per year over 10 years.
