Summary

Every child deserves to learn in a conducive learning environment that poses no threat to their health and safety ... and enhances learning outcomes and academic performance. This is not the case in most public schools in Nigeria where promising, less privileged students are subjected to poor, hazardous and difficult learning conditions due to inadequate infrastructure. The overwhelming student population makes it almost impossible for Government alone to meet these needs without the support.

Challenge

Students in most public schools end up getting a sub-standard education as they learn under arduous conditions. These include deteriorating buildings, overcrowded classrooms with poor ventilation and lighting, inadequate furniture, equipment etc. The impact of a highly effective learning environment on learning outcomes and academic performance cannot be overemphasized. All students deserve to be in physically and psychologically secure environments where learning can be maximized.

Solution

To improve the quality of education for underserved students, we have currently adopted 10 public schools in Nigeria. We plan to carry out various renovations and upgrades. This includes the provision of adequate furniture, ceilings, painting, modern pieces of equipment etc. We will install lighting to improve poor illumination and ceiling fans in the densely populated schools. This will enrich the learning experience of thousands of students in these schools.

Long-Term Impact

Quality education is the right of every child. Sadly the less privileged get sub-standard schools. Students simply cannot maximize learning in a chaotic environment. Providing well equipped and conducive learning environment for the less privileged will significantly increase student success. This will broaden their knowledge base helping them contribute to national development. The growth and future of the nation are highly dependent on the quality of the present school education system.
