Challenge

Nigeria has one of the highest statistics of out-of-school children in the world. Children who live on the streets and source for livelihood on the streets are the most neglected. There is currently no institutional policy geared towards educating these children and even when opportunities arise for these children to go to school, because they have never attended school or have been out of school, it is usually difficult for them to easily integrate into the formal education.

Solution

First, we identify out-school children on the streets in rural communities and using activity-based learning, we provide free literacy lessons to them for 8 weeks.The second phase of the project is our integration model where we provide scholarships to the children who have completed our lessons to continue their education for free in partner schools. The third phase of the project will involve building street schools where all children on the street can receive quality education for free.

Long-Term Impact

In 4 years, we want to have established a sustainable model for providing quality education to children on the street in Nigeria where both the children and parents of the children are empowered. Our ultimate goal however is working in partnership with the ministry of education to ensure that institutional efforts are put in place to strengthen access to free and quality education for all out- of-school children on the streets in Nigeria.
