We are pleased to introduce to you The Heartminders Societal Advancement Initiative’s day of the girl  #IDG2017 Conference for your warm consideration and coverage .
Our Objective

The Heartminders project was conceived to create a better and healthier society.

Our Aim

To offer Nigerians girls, especially the young adults and teenagers through this project, hope for a better tomorrow, upholding their right to life.

On December 19, 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare 11 October as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. 

For its sixth observance, this year’s Day will focus on the theme; EmPOWER Girls: Before, during and after crises’ as announced by UN.

The fulfilment of girls’ right to education is first and foremost an obligation and moral imperative.
