Girl Up Nigeria, a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization founded on the 14th of July, 2020, in alignment with the Girl Up campaign under the United Nations Foundation, celebrates 2 years of impact.
Our founder, Baliqees Salaudeen, has always loved everything that contributes to Nigerian and African-wide development. Be it the policy research space, advocacy for the girl-child, boy-child, education, gender-based violence, and several other pressing social and environmental issues.
