This is what they call putting your money where your mouth is. The Norweigan government is allocating $1.6 million (over N259 million) to the #BringBackOurGirls cause.

Specifically, the funds will go towards promoting safe schooling in the Northern part of Nigeria and helping communities affected by the abductions, Skandik Afrik, reports.

Børge Brende, Norweigan Minister of Foreign Affairs, has expressed that Norway will also consider providing humanitarian assistance for the refugees and internally displaced people in the area.

    Very kind and generous of them but let’s hope the money actually gets into the “right” hands and to those who need it.

      @ha this is getting serious…with this comment you’ve made here and the one you made on Atoke’s article, I’m now worried.

      What’s really happening? Is it something you want to share? You seem really troubled and on the verge of something major. Please try to find someone of trust that you can speak to.

      Sometimes I read some comments here and wish I could magically teleport to the person’s location and give them a bear hug and happy words…and then we can go dancing barefoot afterwards.

      Keep your head up m’dear.

    Scandinavian countries are the best in the world..very practical people!! Please this seems like an open channel for more Nigerian immigrants to seek asylum in Norway though. We sabi spoil everything. In other news, Norway gives free education at all levels ..masters to PHD.

    Is this not the Norway that is reconstructing the human zoo using blacks as animals? Abi am I mistaken? Why do we have such short memories like this? This oyibo people ehn, give with one hand, stab you with another and we happily welcome them. Please I prefer to die in my misery than accept gift from someone who will later humiliate me. This kind of thing that makes us remain under the whites and they keep on justifying it. Outta here.
