Summary

This project will combat the high rate of school-drop out, child labour and youth violence in rural Nigerian communities by providing expanded learning opportunities to school-age children living in poverty and disadvantage. Through informal learning activities, MIND Foundation provides access to ICT education, leadership development and vocational skills training to enable rural children gain knowledge, skills and self-confidence to excel in life.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Good education is the right of every child. Unfortunately rural Nigerian communities are laden with under-resourced schools that limit the potential of children, making them unable to attain higher education or succeed in the competitive world beyond. These children lack the knowledge, skills and resources available to their counterparts all over the world and as a consequence, develop poor self-esteem and a high level of inadequacy which exposes them to further disadvantage and vulnerability

How will this project solve this problem?

Operating on a principle that knowledge is the differentiator, MIND programmes help educationally under-served rural students develop knowledge, skills, and character through hands-on education in ICT, leadership and vocational skills training at no expense to their parents. Rural students will have access to computers and other modern learning aids, outstanding volunteer-tutors, mentoring and a balanced curriculum to develop a strong culture of achievement to help them compete globally.

Potential Long Term Impact

MIND's holistic support will give rural children an enabling environment to develop vital life skills, stay engaged in their education and have the best opportunity to realise their potential. The knowledge and competencies gained from the programme will empower them to make informed decisions about their future and break out of the cycle of poverty. They will be able to mentor their peers and younger children and grow to become agents of change and development in their communities.
