Welcome to Total Girl Development Initiative
TGDI is a registered non-profit, non-governmental organisation that works to create, spread and sustain the development of the potential of the female gender across Nigeria. The organisation is driven by a passion to alleviate the suffering of the girl child, creating awareness and tackling issues of gender DISCRIMINATION.
The vision for TGDI began on the 21st of May, 2010 in a seed form. The vision was born during an intervention called to resolve a dispute between two girls at Itohan Girls Grammar School. Once they got past their misunderstanding their need for listening ear by a matured person who genuinely cared about them became eminent as the girl opened up about challenges faced in their personal lives and sought counsel on how to overcome them. Over time trust was built and what began with two people grew to six girls and in next to no time, 19 girls.
