The United Nations International Children Emergency Fund (UNICEF), Gombe State Coordinating Unit, has given scholarship to 300 girl children to study in Federal College of Education (FCE), Gombe.

The UNICEF Coordinator in the state, Malam Isa Yahaya, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gombe on Thursday.

Yahaya said the beneficiaries were selected from the most remote areas of each local government of the state.

He explained that the aim was to train them as teachers and at the end of their studies, deployed to primary and secondary schools to teach.

“Most of the girls are from poor background that is even why we did not pick those in the local government headquarters. We are made to understand that poverty is the major factor that hinders them from furthering their education,” he said.

He said they commenced the programme in 2014 and is going to be sustained after the graduation of the first set after three years. (NAN)
