IGBS is re-opening! Wear It Green on Wed 17 Feb to celebrate


Ibba Girls Boarding School is successfully re-opening for a third year, and has enrolled an additional cohort of 40 more girl students, bringing the school’s capacity to 120 in three classes spanning Primary Levels 4 to 6.

Most students existing and new have now arrived at the school, and here you can see them wearing their green school uniforms with pride, and holding their new textbooks which many of you, our supporters, have generously provided. Other girl students continue to arrive, some having travelled for 5 or more hours over dirt roads through unsafe areas, with their entire family on motorcycle.

We invite you to mark this milestone of the school re-opening and expanding, by wearing a green item of clothing – some socks, a shirt, a funny hat, etc., or even an entire outfit! – this week on Wednesday 17 Feb.

Do also share your green-wearing selfies with us on Facebook or Twitter, or email them to FIGS volunteer Zsofia Preddle at [email protected].

A huge thank you to those of you who so generously give – time, skills, energy, and money – to fulfil these girls’ dreams of an education. We are really excited to celebrate with you!
