FastTrack is an accelerated learning program designed to provide access to and improve the quality of literacy and numeracy instruction available for children and youth who are out-of-school and consequently missing out on quality learning opportunities in Northern Nigeria. This program is built around a bidimensional differentiated curriculum delivered within 18 months with emphasis on the development of fundamental literacy, numeracy, digital, entrepreneurial and vocational skills. Fast Track will train 700,000 out-of-school children between age 5-14 missing out of formal learning opportunities in northern marginalized communities.

The initiative is being delivered through intensive training by experienced facilitators, and it focuses on four significant phases, namely:
> Training Phase
> Enumeration, Pre-testing and Grouping Phase
> Learning Phase
> Post Testing and Support Phase

OBJECTIVES

  1. To improve the literacy and numeracy competencies of out-of-school children in various marginalized communities in Northern Nigeria.
  2. To improve access to learning opportunities for marginalized children between 5-14 years of age in marginalized northern communities.
  3. To deploy resources [Mavis Computer Solution and trained facilitators] for accelerated learning targeted at out-of-school children in marginalized northern communities.
