XR Through The Womanist Gaze 1/3: Education for Women, with Judith Okonkwo
Free access to education remains an enduring issue for a lot of children in Africa, especially those living in rural poor communities. According to UNICEF research, over 18 million children in Nigeria are out of school and girls make up 60% of this population. Major enhancing factors of out-of-school children include poverty, child labour, distance to school and cultural practices in some communities. As a woman who believes that education should be accessible to every child regardless of gender, tribe and background, Judith Okonkwo is using XR to provide access to education to underserved communities in Nigeria and Africa.
