The Federal University Dutsinma (FUDMA), Katsina State has offered admission and scholarships to some female hawkers around the institution's gates to further their education in the school.
Prof. Armaya’u Hamisu-Bichi, the Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University, made this known during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Developing and Entrenching Gender Concepts, Policies, Tools and Practices on Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG).
The offer is contained in the university’s weekly bulletin signed by the institution’s spokesperson Malam Habibu Umar-Amin in Katsina.
According to the VC, the girls were drawn from some communities across Local Government Areas (LGAs) neighbouring FUDMA.
”This gesture is part of our corporate social responsibility to the host communities. It also aimed at taking these young girls off the street.
”This will also go a long way in addressing social vices against women and children that have been identified as the most vulnerable in our society.
“It is an initiative of the university management that gave rehabilitation and admission to some identified female hawkers loitering the university gates,” he said.
He maintained that the university has zero tolerance for violence gain women and girls.
