It is no longer news about the significant role education plays in society. It is much talked about in the developed nations as well as the developing nations thereby amassing a lot of followers on the course for a better and sound education. Basic education is the core of a sound educational foundation. It is the major step towards building a sound mental system for young learners within the age range of 6 years to 14 years. Basic education is the foundation upon which other levels of education are built and a requirement for human, and national progress. It is fundamental to human and national development.

Upon this premise, EbonyIda foundation in its 2022 plans, has worked towards creating opportunities for less privileged children in public primary schools in Edo state of Nigeria. As we believe that basic education brings growth and development to the young one’s intellectual capacity as well as their morals, attitudes, and how they relate to those around them.

 

In pursuit of the above objectives, we have delivered on the goals by implementing programs geared towards meeting the needs of less privileged kids with school supplies to one hundred and fifty (150) less privileged children. The school supplies, including Uniforms, Shoes, and writing materials, were provided to less privileged pupils whose parents and guardians could not afford them.

 

BENEFICIARY

 

The School Supply program was given to three Public Primary schools within the Benin metropolis, carefully selected from three local government areas (Egor, Ikpoba-Okha, and Uhunmwode).

The schools are;

 

            SCHOOL NAME                                                          

  • Olua Primary school, Egor LGA
  • Aduwawa primary School, Ikpoba-Okha LGA
  • Eyaen Primary School, Uhunmwode LG
  •               

BENEFICIARY SELECTION

 

The selection of beneficiaries was done by working with the heads of schools (Head Mistresses) who are acquainted with every pupil and their pre-existing constraints to basic school supplies and confirmed by the EbonyIda Foundation project manager. Interviews were conducted on the selected pupils to ascertain their poverty score and determine if they befit the purpose. A visit was made to the selected pupil’s parents in a bid to ascertain the poverty level.

 

NUMBER OF BENEFICIARIES

 

Fifty (50) pupils each from three (3) selected schools making a total of one hundred and fifty (150) male and female pupils benefited from this program.

 

 

 

EVENT TIMELINE

 

The project started in January 2022 by seeking approvals from the government authority in charge of public Basic educational institutions in Edo state (State Universal Basic Education Board-SUBEB) followed by the logistics which run till the end of the financial year 2022. Date for events and items presented to selected pupils was largely affected by the approval letter obtained from SUBEB and the timeline for the school calendar year as well as logistics issues. (. The board approval was obtained in September 2022 and the school supplies program held in the school as follows;

Education is a human right and is central to achieving many other sustainable development outcomes. A quality basic education gives children and youth the knowledge and skills they need to face daily life challenges, and take advantage of economic and lifelong learning opportunities. It is also a key driver for reducing poverty, fostering economic growth, and achieving gender equality, and social development.

Education helps people become better citizens, get better-paid jobs, and shows the difference between good and bad. Education shows us the importance of hard work and, at the same time, helps us grow and develop. Thus, we are able to shape a better society to live in by knowing and respecting rights, laws, and regulations

These benefits are even greater when support for education is targeted toward the less privileged and vulnerable children in society. Investigation reveals that a high number of school dropouts is caused by children’s lack of access to basic school supplies to aid in their educational learning process. It is based on these reasons that EbonyIda Foundation plans to sponsor school supplies to 210 (Two Hundred and Ten) less privileged children and provide vocational skills to 20 vulnerable youths in Edo state Nigeria. The school supplies which include Books, uniforms, and writing materials are to be provided to less privileged pupils who cannot afford them.
