If Education is indeed a basic human right, then the rights of millions of children who live in hard-to-reach, low-income and conflict-stricken communities of Nigeria is being trampled upon. More than half of children that have not enrolled in school live in sub-Saharan Africa, and more than 85 per cent of children in sub-Saharan Africa are not learning the minimum proficiency.
Never before have so many children been out of school at the same time, with many experiencing disrupted learning and empowerment, especially the most vulnerable and marginalised. Children from the poorest households are up to four times more likely to be out of school than those of the richest households.
Disparities between rural and urban areas also remain high. In these current times, the role of education has become more pronounced as a driver of inclusion, economic growth, political participation and sustainable development. But for rural women, vulnerable adolescent girls and at-risk youth who can not access education, training and employment opportunities, their chances to contribute to a just, peaceful and inclusive world is limited.
With our work, we are leveraging collaboration, innovation and technology to ensure access to quality learning, vocational, entrepreneurship and life skills training for many who have been left behind.
