The Education Problem
The Universal Basic Education (UBEC) estimates the number of out-of-school Nigerian children as 13.2million. This number has placed us as the country with the highest number of children out of school in the world. It is even more depressing that 70% of children enrolled in school cannot read, write and speak well. We are positive that financial support from BATN will enable us to reach more public primary schools and record qualitative and measurable development in the lives of pupils across the nation. We are passionate about implementing progressive ideas, executing educational projects that rewrite the narrative of the Nigerian educational system, now and in the future.
Our Impact So Far
Distributed clothing, bags, shoes, food items and stationery to over 2,500 inhabitants of the slum. These items were donated by students of the University of Lagos and other members of the public.
Gave out exercise books, school bags and other stationery to 2,003 pupils and we donated textbooks to Onayande Primary School. To give the school structures a facelift, painted Fadeyi Primary School.
Donated food items, clothes and toiletries to the Modupe Cole Memorial Home. Wined, dined and danced with the differently abled children in the home giving them a sense of hope and belonging.
Donated packs of exercise books and other stationery to over 1,500 pupils. We provided a toilet facility to St. Michael Nur. & Pry. School. Renovated the school’s frontage and gate and cleaned up the gutters and restrooms.
Renovated and painted the library, we also provided textbooks, new chairs and tables for the library. Provided 12 marker boards and distributed notebooks and pencils to over 150 pupils.
NBFAfrica gave out N1,000 to 50 roadside and traffic vendors. The motive was to double their day’s profit because our research revealed that most traffic hawkers make at most N1,000 in profit a day.
