    I took on the course with a lot of challenges thinking i will not finish the course but with in five days of my free time i learnt and fully completed the course that will help me build the right future for my children, friends and community benefit.
    How there is need for the university to identify the communities of the students so that there is team formation to alert and teach other organizations of the same community.

    I've enjoyed the educational adventure with you guys. The course has enlightening me about the importance of educating a girl child in society. Girl child education should be a top most priority for every society, and policy and decision makers should pay more attention in making sure that the girl child has the best education she needs. Thank You!
