The Lady Mechanics Initiative was established in Nigeria in 2004 as a non-governmental organization dedicated to equipping young women with economically valuable skills and attitudes. This project is intended to challenge traditional gender roles and perceptions, and give women skills in traditionally male-dominated and well-paid professions. This grant will help the organization to (a) continue its out-of-school training in auto mechanics and motor repair; (b) start a pilot on training in generator and water pump repairs; (c) create a pilot strategy to do outreach to, and link with, girls in the formal secondary school education sector in Nigeria; and (d) begin a program to train girls as professional drivers.
