Fundraiser Details

The Education After Escape campaign reached a significant goal of over $20,000 in its one month campaign (July 18- August 18, 2014). Help us raise even more funds to educate the escaped schoolgirls who were abducted by Boko Haram in Nigeria by going to https://www.youcaring.com/nonprofits/education-after-escape/228007.


As the world’s attention turned to northern Nigeria and the demand for the return of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls, it is important to note that although these women and children may escape Boko Haram’s clutches, they do not escape the long term effects of their capture. With the mass abductions of nearly 300 hundred Chibok girls, Boko Haram has had a chilling effect on girl education in northern Nigeria. Amazingly, some of the girls have managed to escape their vicious captors

 

In the midst of this atrocity, the education of Nigeria’s girls has been disrupted and there is a real risk of having a lost generation, thereby risking the long-term peace and development in Nigeria and the wider region. Every girl deserves the right to an education! These rescued girls are living in constant fear of Boko Haram’s further vengeance and need your help.

Organizations like Jubilee Campaign USA are trying to make a difference. Jubilee Campaign, a US based non-profit organization with a track record of helping victims of violence in northern Nigeria, is assisting 10 of the girl child victims, who courageously escaped the confines of their Boko Haram captors, to send them to specialized boarding schools where their traumatic experiences may be transformed into empowering triumphs over evil. Each girl will be able to enroll in a school where she will grow in wisdom and stature while gaining mental and emotional support. Through this campaign, these girls who due to cost, environmental threats, or ongoing Boko Haram violence in Nigeria, would otherwise be out of school and thus their future potential and healing neglected, will have the opportunity to survive.

 

The Education After Escape Campaign seeks to be the change. We are looking to mobilize $125,000 in 1 month (by the end of August 2014) to support the transportation and education of 10 escaped girl victims from Boko Haram terrorists, leading them to a hopeful and successful future through education.

 

On behalf of the children that we help out, we thank you, so much. We have done this successfully with one girl from Chibok already. Now we want to do it for 10.

So what are you waiting for? Donate now! A donation of any amount will help.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Education After Escape! Please keep checking back, as we will be sharing the written testimonies of the escaped girls we are helping. They have graciously provided us with their stories. For security purposes, their names have been changed. 

My name is Abigail. I am an orphan, my father was killed by boko haram on 11/1/2013 last year. He was a pastor at E.Y.N., and I was transferred to the school G. S. S. Chibok. 

I was at school on 14/4/2014. We had successfully done our exam by 2:00. In the evening, around 8:30 pm, when we were at hostel, not knowing anything the group of boko haram, they arrived and divided into two sections. The first group went to the Chibok town, shooting and burning the houses, while the other group went to the school. They went around the school wall, some went into the school compound and gather all of the students to a one place and said to us, we are soldiers don't be afraid, are you heard the shooting and burning in the town? They are boko haram attack the town, and we came to protect you against them, and we obey them, because they wearing soldier uniform.

After we all gather before them, they sent a two girls into the hostel to see weather they are still some staff, later they lead us outside the gate and asked us, were you depend on soldiers? We answer and said yes. Then they revealed themselves to us ok, we are the boko haram. So can see weather the soldiers will come and rescue you from our hand, they start shooting the gun around us and they bring the trucks and said to us, every body who does not enter this truck we are going to shoot them, and so we start enter the trucks. About five trucks full with students, they started move, and I was in the last truck we moving about 50km away from school, I was crying and said in my heart, my Father is killed by boko haram and me too, is better for me to die by the car than to die by the boko haram, and I jump out from the truck and nobody else behind me, I have wounded but not much and started running into the brush till I reach a village called Kwada about 50 km away from the village and the people carried me to my Father's home this is how I escaped from the incident.

We are pleased to attend the 100 Days of Captivity Rally in front of the Nigerian Embassy on July 24th from 12-2 pm. This day signifies the 100 day marker of hundreds of innocent Chibok schoolgirls remaining in Boko Haram's barbaric captivity. Pray the Nigerian government acts quickly to return these precious daughters of God safely to their homes. 


While we mourn these horrific events, we are encouraged that there is something we can do Right Now to impact the lives of 10 courageous Chibok girls who escaped their Boko Haram captors. 

Please donate today to Education After Escape! Help ensure their future by sending them to gain a bright education in a safe and spirit-filled environment.
