Help 80 Secondary Pupils in Niger Read and Write



This project will help reduce dropout rate of underprivileged secondary pupils in Niger with reading and writing deficiencies by implementing an extensive tutoring and special teacher training program

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Access to education in the capital city, Niamey, is no longer the main problem for underprivileged students - today the challenge is to improve the quality of education and reduce the dropout rate. Many students come to middle school as functional illiterates and are 2 or 3 grades below level. French, the language of instruction, is not spoken at home and is therefore a struggle.This project will provide remediation classes for 80 Nigerien students so they can complete their secondary studies.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our organization will improve learning conditions and provide an extensive tutoring program, textbooks for all to take home, cooler and smaller classes.Teachers will get a hands-on cutting-edge training to bring underachievers up to level.

Potential Long Term Impact

Quality education will turn struggling students, especially girls, into confident above average achievers. Parents and the community will be made aware of the relationship between quality education, health, hygiene, employment, and the environment.
