How The Chibok Girls Have Raised $2.5Billion For Girl Child Education

Yesterday made it 2 years since the kidnapping of over 200 girls from a Government secondary school in Chibok, Nigeria. Although it was an event we wish didn’t happen, it has prompted the world to take female education a lot more seriously.

The first lady of the United States, or FLOTUS as some say, Michelle Obama has called for the education of every girl child during the Let Girls Learn event in the World Bank Group-IMF Spring Meetings.

The call was well received, alongside a commitment from the World Bank Group to invest $2.5 billion on the education of the girl-child – an amount that will be spent during a 5 year period on education projects that directly benefit adolescent girls, whose empowerment is central to the Bank Group’s development efforts.

The announcement, made at the Let Girls Learn event during the World Bank Group-IMF Spring Meetings, was followed by a call to action from the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, urging key policymakers and influencers from around the world to commit to urgent action in support of adolescent girls.

“It’s an expression of our belief in the power of education to transform the lives and prospects of millions of girls worldwide — as well as the prospects of their families, their communities and, of course, their countries,” FLOTUS said.

“I’m very excited to join the First Lady in announcing this major boost in funding for adolescent girls’ education,” said World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim. “Empowering and educating adolescent girls is one of the best ways to stop poverty from being passed from generation to generation, and can be transformational for entire societies. This increased funding will help provide countries, especially in regions like Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, with the tools to expand access to quality education so that all adolescent girls can go to school and reach their full potential.”

Obama said the drive to educate all girls is not just about resources, but about whether “we truly believe that girls are worth educating in the first place. And that’s where this issue becomes personal for me...When I travel the world and I meet girls who are so bright and so hungry to go to school, I see myself in these girls. I see my daughters in these girls.”

“Make no mistake about it. These girls are our girls. Every last one of them. These girls are our responsibility.”

The event was held on the two-year anniversary of the abduction of 200 Nigerian schoolgirls by the terrorist group Boko Haram.

A sum of N15million was demanded for the release of Temitope Kuteyi, a correspondent of Channels Television abducted by gunmen in Owerri, Imo state capital on Monday.

Temitope was abducted in his house which is located along Umuguma Specialist Hospital, Owerri, in the early hours of Monday, and his whereabouts has been unknown.

According to an eye witness, the kidnappers were about eight in number and jumped through his fence to gain access to where he was.

“I was in the security room with my brother when someone opened the window and pointed a gun at us and ordered us to open the gate, but I refused,” said the eye witness, Thomas.

“While I was arguing with them, I didn’t know that other members of the gang had climbed into the compound through the fence; they broke into my ‘oga’s’ house and brought him out.

“After that, they entered into the next bungalow and smashed all the window glasses, but the man there escaped through the fence at the back.

“They took his car and drove away with my Oga.”

Hours later, the kidnappers contacted a friend of the victim demanding a ransom of N15million.

According to thecable ng, a press statement issued by Sam Onwuemeodo, chief press secretary to Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo, the government said it was aware of the incident.

If You're Talking Celebrity Sneakers, These Are The Holy Grails image

If You're Talking Celebrity Sneakers, These Are The Holy Grails

It’s 2016 and practically every famous person owns his own range of fashion products from colognes to shirts to pants all down to shoes, asides being an extra source of income, it’s a way to really establish yourself and your brand. Most importantly if you’re a rapper and you have no sneaker deal, you will not be taken seriously in this day and age. With the sudden increase in celebrity sneaker deals, here are the celebrity sneakers worth spending money on.



Who makes suede sneakers and gets away with it? Rihanna’s collaboration with Puma might just be what you need to up your sneaker game. Rihanna’s creepers come with golden logo foils. The game-changing shoe stands on a 1-1.5” platform and is a sure way to stand out even in a suit.



Inspired and designed by Kanye West, the yeezy 350 boost is a low-top sneaker which first debuted in the yeezy season fashion show, February 2015. Available in selected colours, this could as well be the most comfortable celebrity footwear of all time and the only Mr West clothing item worth buying.



The Reebok classic x Kendrick Lamar classic leather is the brands latest attempt to re-launch the Reebok classic. The sneaker arrives in a classic look featuring a premium white leather upper with a complementary gum sole underneath. Tonal laces accompany the clean kicks, and appropriated branding can be seen alongside, on the tongue and at the heel. The shoe is a tribute to bridge the divide between two of Lamar’s hometown gangs, the Blood’s and Crip’s. Lamar decided to incorporate this into the design by making one shoe Blood’s oriented, and the other Crip’s. On the heel of one shoe is written Red, while the other has Blue. A white midsole and a gum based outsole complete the overall look.

Genius right?



G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T released his first sneaker late last year called the "Adidas EQT Running Guidance '93 'King Push'." The Adidas collaboration went for $200 and sold out pretty quick. Like Big Sean, the Adidas Originals Twitter account has been teasing a new Pusha T collaboration, so we'll have to see what King Push has on deck. It features fish scale uppers in an off-white colour which is supposed to depict his drug dealing past.



Designed with ultimate minimalism, Kylie describes Fierce as “a lightweight trainer with zero excuses.” It features several black panels and an elongated tongue much like Rihanna’s new Pumas.
