15 Chibok girls who escaped from Boko Haram captivity were in 2014 awarded scholarship to attend the American University of Nigeria (AUN) Yola by former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
The girls were among the over 200 students kidnapped from their hostels at Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State.
Atiku shared a photo of one of the students who is studying Computer Science and is now a volunteer teach with TELA, an Education project launched by the former VP and sponsored by USAID to teach basic literary and numeracy to vulnerable children
“This is one of our ?#?Chibok? students, studying computer science at American University of Nigeria. She’s now a TELA facilitator. Education changes everything! She went from captivity to AUN, and is now volunteering to teach other children. This is great courage!”
