Building Back Better: Recyclespay for 1000 Childre
COVID-19 has caused major disruptions in education around the world. According to emerging evidence from some Nigerian regions, the pandemic is causing learning losses and increasing inequality. To reduce and reverse the long-term negative effects, Nigeria and other less-affluent lower-income countries, which are even harder hit, need to implement learning recovery programs, protect educational budgets, and prepare for future shocks by “building back better.”
The Recyclespay Educational Project, which was established to reduce the number of out of school children in Nigeria and also bridge the gap between children living in vulnerable communities and educational opportunities, has also been harmed by an unstable economy caused by inflation which led to an increase in the cost of logistics, fuel, maintenance, and overheads. The project's objective of promoting quality education for all has remained unchanged despite all this challenges.
We have been able to recover a total of 1,463.6kg/ 58,544 individual pieces of recyclables from the environment between July 2021 and October 2021.This brings our total recyclable count from March 2020 to October 2021 to 13,625.61kg/545,024.4 individual recyclable pieces recovered from the environment.
With the rising expense of school supplies, now more than ever, we call for everyone's support in ensuring we prevent more school children from dropping out of school and giving those out of school children the opportunity to get back into school.
Our sincere gratitude to everyone who has contributed to the Recyclespay project thus far, especially the GlobalGiving community for their excellent support, mentorship, and
dedication to ensuring that every child has equitable access to education.Attachments:
