Challenge

Children in Northern Nigeria face unique challenges and the COVID-19 pandemic has complicated existing challenges in access to and quality of education. Since 2009, over 1,400 schools have been destroyed and 2,295 teachers killed in protracted Northern Nigeria conflict. As a result, we have poor educational outcomes, loss of sources of livelihood, and low enrollment, retention and completion of basic education (k12). This project will impact 500 disadvantaged students in Northern Nigeria

Solution

This project will provide life skills, career guidance, vocational and enterprise skills training to disadvantaged students. Their teachers who will train them will be trained to 21st century teaching skills, career guidance, enterprise and vocational skills to improve quality educational delivery. The trained students are also encouraged to start a business, further their education, solve a social challenge and improve their community.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 500 disadvantaged students in a community allowing their parent, peers and community members to see the advantages of education when these students start businesses, further their education and earn a source of livelihood for themselves whilst contributing positively to their community.
