Supporting Children & Families in NE Nigeria

In late 2016 Street Child announced its intention to make a difference in the North East of Nigeria where on-going conflict had impacted the lives of millions of children and their families. Thanks to your support we have been working flat out all year to get our programme off the ground. 
We have made huge progress! We helped 100s of children in 2017 and are set to help 10s of 1000s of children in 2018.
In July this year we built a temporary learning centre to provide over 300 children with a basic education. It not only gives these children a safe space but our 10 teachers provide education not only in literacy and numeracy, but also on essential emergency related topics including basic hygiene, psycho-social counselling and gender based violence. We have also provided 100 livelihoods packages to address the over-arching barrier to education for internally displaced and host community families: household poverty.
Even more excitingly, Street Child is now in a great position to take these achievements to scale. Already for 2018, we have secured funding to start work on the following projects:
- building 60 more temporary learning centres, rehabilitating 120 damaged classrooms and training 450 teachers across the North East.
- helping 23,000 conflict-affected children not only to have access to basic education, but benefit teachers and social workers trained in counselling and child protection. 
There are many people and organisations who have come together to make this possible - but you, our supporters, are the vital link in the chain. Without you, none of this would have been possible. Thank you. 
Of course, there is so much more to do - and we continue to ask for your support. There are an estimated 2.5m children out of school in North East Nigeria. We want to do more to support some of the most vulnerable children in Nigeria to go to school.
