Nigeria has been rated by the world culture score index as one of the country in the world with low reading culture, statistics for national commision of mass literacy shows that 62% of Nigerians are literate and 38% are non-literate, which shows 70millions Nigerians can not read and write effectively


This project would be lunch by a sensitization campaign targeted to children and youth in undeserved community, this would be followed up by establishing a reading club and centers to enable a conducive reading environment. Also an annual spelling compettition would be organized where exception student can express their skills and competency for a championship award.

Long-Term Impact

A variety of formal and informal mechanism would be put in place to ensure it's sustainability. This would later extend from one local community to another and in the longrun increase literacy rate in Nigeria. The competition instituted will extend to a state competition and a national competition. Also we believe the government will adopt the project so as to reach remote areas in Nigeria
