1.3 million children have been forced to flee their homes from conflict in northeastern Nigeria. 3 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 built a temporary learning centre in Maiduguri that supported 400 children to receive a quality education.
Conflict in Northeast Nigeria has been described by the UN as one of the worst humanitarian crises. 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.
Street Child established a temporary learning centre in Maiduguri to give 400 children the chance to go to school. We trained teachers, refurbished classrooms, provided teaching and learning materials and supported children with psycho-social support through locally-recruited social workers.
This project provided a safe space for 400 children to learn, giving them hope for a brighter future.
