This project will support 50 vulnerable children in Cross River State, Nigeria with access to education, health and psycho-social services by paying their tuition fees, medical bills, providing school materials and psycho-social support.
UNICEF 2014 reports that about 10.5 million children in Nigeria are out of school and Cross River State accounts for 15.1% with Calabar metropolis having a significant percentage. Most of these children come from vulnerable households whose economic capacity are too low to provide for their basic needs (health, education and food.)
Our project will provide 50 vulnerable children with access to basic education over a period of one year by paying their tuition fees, medical bills, providing school materials. Psycho-social support will be provided to children and caregivers by training them on life skills and positive parenting skills. They are monitored over the various stages of the project to ensure compliance to agreed procedures and post project sustainability.
The project will provide 50 vulnerable children with secondary education by providing them with skills to lead them out of poverty and improving their health thereby developing their society.
