Challenge

Literacy is a key driver for sustainable development. Literacy skills are the prerequisite for the learning of a broader set of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values, required for creating sustainable societies. As the current economic hardship eats deeper into the country, it is hitting a large number of over 65 million illiterates in Nigeria even worse (according to UNESCO). It would take 58 years to eradicate illiteracy in Nigeria.

Solution

We employ the Montessori teaching method (i.e Montessori Adult School) a 21st-century vocational training on over 1,000 adults and youths with little to no basic education who operate their small personal businesses, who are jobless or who manage low-income jobs. These 1,000, at the end of the program, would undergo an assessment test to measure the impact of the project. On completion of the exam, successful students would be approved and certified as officially literate.

Long-Term Impact

The goal is to reduce the number of 3 million illiterates in Lagos, demonstrate the relevance of literacy in the development of social and economic lives of people in Nigeria and show how it can improve our economy. We strongly believe with your kind donations and funding, we should be able to scale up to transform more 1,000 illiterate adults so that they too can have hope for economic and social development elevated from extreme poverty.
