WHO WE ARE

WE ARE GIRL CHILD CARE ADVANCEMENT INITIATIVE

Girl Child Care Advancement Initiative (GCCAI) is a non-governmental organization that caters to the needs of the girl child.

We observed that there are huge financial, social and cultural obstacles that inhibit girls from accessing certain opportunities compared to their male counterparts.

In view of that, our organization seeks to bridge those gaps by empowering the girl child to connect with opportunities.
