Some states in Nigeria show an alarming decline in school attendance in the five years between 2009 to 2013. Drop-out rates in Nigeria are as high as 60% in the higher secondary level. 50% of children who join Class I drop out by Class IV, those who has access to school don't learn optimally. Enrollment has increased in recent times, but many children are still unable to read and speak good English or solve basic Mathematics. Absence of reliable learning materials, books, desks or tables


This program will aim at preparing the students for two certificate examinations namely; the First School Leaving Certificate Examination and the Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination using the existing National Basic Educational Syllabus, but with some modifications to emphasize practicability and functionality of the knowledge gained by the students, especially at the upper basic level to equip them effectively for sustainable livelihood at completion of their learning experience.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that the most leveraged way to alleviate illiteracy and poverty is through basic education, development is sustainable when local communities build capacity at the grassroots and create their own solutions. Our target is to provides over 3500 less-privileged and vulnerable children with learning materials and vocational training by end of 2015 and the cycle of empowerment will continue. HKRF, will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
