Many children in Ehime Mbano, Nigeria are proud to come to school to learn, often unlike their parents. They walk long distances on dirt roads and have to learn in very bad conditions, with no paper, no pen, sometimes no chalk for the teachers, with 40 or more children packed in a class, some children resort to writing in the margins of the notebooks already used by their brothers and sisters in the years before. This experience can be demotivating and causes school drop-outs.
At CHRIFACAF, we are committed to ensuring that at least one of the costs associated with attending school is alleviated. With your support, we will provide underprivileged children with school kits (packs) containing the following items: 1 backpack (school bag), 6 exercise books, 1 pencil case, 2 ball point pens (blue or black), 4 pencils, 1 x 30cm ruler (with metric measurements), 2 erasers, 1 pencil sharpener, 1 pack crayons- mean that a child will have the necessary tools for class.
The project will improve learning environment with a strong impact on the quality of education and motivation of the children, which will enable them to forge a better tomorrow for themselves, their families and their communities. By providing better learning conditions to children keen to learn, drop-out rates decrease and secondary school enrolment ratio increase.
