Admittedly system of Education in Nigeria is bedeviled with lots of fundamental problems that have resulted in schools functioning far below expectations.  The existence and stringent belief of patriarchy in African society has perpetually marginalized the women particularly girls which obviously reflects in every spheres of their lives most notably Education (In most cases boys are preferred to go to school than girls, additionally girls are mostly deprived of Education by other social problems like poverty, early marriage and early pregnancy). Regrettably, Education for the girl child is not given a deserved attention which in no small measure contributes to the continuous rise of out of school girls in the continent of Africa. An uneducated girl child is susceptible to every form of abuse and neglect including rape, child trafficking and outright deprivation of the essential human rights. This obnoxious experience of some of these girls however directly thwarts their dreams and renders their future meaningless. YEF been a humanitarian and non profit making organization, having discovered the challenges of the female child and its debilitating risk to the future of the society deemed it fit to help, educate and empower the girl child towards realizing their dreams.
