Education In Nigeria
Excellence Through Industry
Education is pivotal to increasing employment and income opportunities. It is the bedrock of social and economic development and can be the key to unlocking the golden door of freedom for all in Africa. And can yields tremendous benefits and bring sustainable change for the individual, family community and nation. As such, in Africa, and Nigeria in particular, any effort to bring lasting change must include education, in one way or the other.
According to UNESCO sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rates of educational exclusion in the world. Over one-fifth of children between the ages of about 6 and 11 are out of school, with one-third of youth between the ages of about 12 and 14. Lack of funds and educational supplies are some of the reasons for educational exclusion amongst local community members. Coupled with these reasons, for the girl child, early motherhood, and child marriage can permanently put an end to a girl’s education according to the United Nations Population Fund.
- This is How We Fight -
The school dropout rate is a key educational metric in every society. Our approach targets the root causes of school dropout so to help kids stay in and finish their education. Based on our research, observations, and user surveys, we are strategically and enthusiastically providing: Access to essential learning materials – books, school supplies, and teaching supplies, and Scholarships: – to cover costs of school uniforms, shoes, and other school-related expenses.
Our activities in the local community are effective long-term investments that will help provide quality educational opportunities and enables community members to rise above poverty and become better decision-makers.
By providing these educational opportunities we certainly will decrease the number of potential young people falling through the cracks of the system, less likely to walk through destructive paths or make wrong decisions that can harm communities and perpetuate poverty. Ultimately, it will produce people who are capable of making a greater contribution to the local community.
