1.3 million children have been forced to flee their homes from conflict in North East Nigeria. Three million children can't go to school and thousands of families are struggling in temporary camps where disease and hunger are rife. Education and emergency support is the key to helping these children to rebuild their lives. This project will build a temporary learning centre in Maiduguri supporting 400 children and their families so they can have a brighter future
Conflict in Northeast Nigeria has been described as one of the 'worst humanitarian crises'. Over 1.3 million children are out of school. Families have been forced to flee their homes and leave everything behind. Living in temporary camps, they are unable to make an income and struggle to feed and educate their children. This project will support over 400 children in NE Nigeria to go to school and have hope for the future.
Street Child are establishing a temporary learning centre in Maiduguri to give 400 children the chance to go to school. We are also providing families with business grants and support so they can afford the costs of educating their children and rebuild their lives following the conflict. Street Child will train teachers, refurbish classrooms, provide teaching and learning materials and support children with psychosocial support through social workers on the ground.
This project will empower families to setup businesses so they can afford the cost of educating their children. It will enable children to go to school and give them hope for a brighter future.
