Internships: viewing all internships from Nigeria
Emily and Kyle spent their summer supporting the Girl-Child Education (GCE) program in Northern Nigeria. The GCE is an NIH-funded initiative that aims to delay the age of marriage and the onset of childbearing for rural adolescent girls in Zaria, Nigeria by providing them with scholarships to attend secondary school and weekly safe space clubs.
Henrissa collaborated with the northern Nigeria Girl-Child Education program. Through the provision of educational opportunities, the program aims to delay the age of marriage and onset of child-bearing amongst low-income and rural communities in Zaria, Nigeria.
Naomi worked with doctors and midwives to develop a community-based maternal health program including a community surveillance system and participatory mother’s groups. The goal of the program is to engage the community, in particular pregnant women, in learning about and creating strategies to improve maternal health.
Kelvin trained the ABUTH fellows in ethnographic research techniques and helped them develop their own research by helping them refine their field notes so that they are in the position to write academic papers based on their field work.
The primary aim of my project was to develop a workshop on applied quantitative methodology for the physician-scientists and doctoral students at ABU.
