On 19 March, the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Education announced the temporary shut-down of all schools in Nigeria, effective 23 March, in a bid to contain the spread of the coronavirus. This prompted a set of questions: "How is this going to affect the educational system? How would this affect teachers whose major/only source of income is the salary gotten from teaching? among others. Educand Education Initiative hopes to grant relief funds to at least 1,000 teachers across the country
The COVID 19 pandemic not only disrupted education as it is, but the teachers' source of income. which has turned most teachers into beggars, begging for their livelihood.
This project will empower 200 teachers by giving them a sum of $50 dollars each which will help them feed their families till schools resume. We will do this in tranches and hope to raise $50,000 for 1000 teachers in total
Continuous motivation owing to the fact that the teachers now know that we have their best interests at heart and the ability to deliver better at their job improving the literacy rate in Nigeria
