Challenge

The primary schools in the villages which lack electricity, running water were abandoned in the wake of the Boko Haram insurgencies and have just recently been reopened to the children who have had their education interrupted. The children that attend the primary schools adopted by Keeping It Real Foundation in Adamawa and Niger States come from disadvantaged homes and lack basic educational supplies such as textbooks, writing materials and storybooks with which to develop strong literacy skills

Solution

Since adopting the 4 schools in February 2017, Keeping It Real Foundation has supported 50 pupils and 4 teachers with writing materials; donated 50 academic and children's books. With this project, Keeping It Real Foundation will provide educational supplies such as textbooks, writing materials, Storybooks, et cetera, to each primary school pupil. Thereby encouraging school enrollment and retention, transform the future of the pupils and improve the literacy rates in Adamawa and Niger States.

Long-Term Impact

The Global Citizen puts the lack of learning materials which includes lack of materials for teachers to prepare their lesson notes as the fourth barrier to education around the world. This project will assist the pupils in developing strong literacy skills, lifelong reading and learning habits, encourage school enrollment and retention and reduce the illiteracy rate in Adamawa and Niger States in Nigeria. The project also has the element of teacher support ensuring sustainability.
