OUR WORK

There are 13 million out-of-schools’ children in Nigeria. Children in rural communities particularly experience difficulty in accessing education and learning resources. as a matter of fact, 48% of rural children walk in a long distance (about 64km) to get to the nearest school quality and modern education service and materials. In 2019, there were 105 million children of primary and secondary school age who were not enrolled in school, and it could take 235 and 280 years to achieve zero out of school rates among lower and upper secondary school age children. 


COVID-19 exacerbated the already education gap, and most marginalized vulnerable children (especially those in rural communities) are at increased risk of being left even further behind in education. By 2030 about 43 per cent of children globally will lack proficiency in major subjects like mathematics and English (learning poor), and yet education is capable of increasing the GDP of African countries by 88 per cent by 2050 if well invested into
