Launched in Abuja, in November 2003, nine girls travelled from the north for nine hours by road to join CCL representatives at the Commonwealth Market organised at the time of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. Their spokeswoman, Maryam, was studying for a BSc in Agriculture, Maimuna was taking an accountancy course and Hauwa, now a mother, is a primary school teacher.
