The desire to ensure that all children can exercise their fundamental right to learn inspires AREAi to remain a driving force in the education world and to be recognized where it matters.
We had the privilege of welcoming Mrs. Nanahawa Raji (SSA) to the Kogi State Governor on Informal and Vocational Education and her team to the AREAi headquarters. Her working visit to AREAi provided the avenue to discuss how we could align priorities and merge efforts to extend AREAi’s research-informed and evidence-based interventions to support the Kogi state government’s developmental agenda.
With the organization’s firm strength of ruthless execution in delivering access to quality foundational learning and digital skills development for out-of-school children and youth, we are enthusiastic about the potential this collaboration holds for all indigenes of Kogi state.
Still, on visitation, we had another courtesy visit from one of our notable partners. United Way Greater Nigeria, an organization that fights for Nigeria’s health, education, and financial stability in Nigeria, came to visit us as well, with the goal of promoting virtual learning and STEM education in Nigeria (PVL-STEM).
They were warmly welcomed, as the Executive Director, Prince Gideon Olanrewaju, expressed appreciation for their visit and discussed how both parties could leverage more collaboration to increase the percentage of children with digital literacy in Nigeria and equip the most marginalized children with digital skills to thrive in today’s world.
It was a pleasant visit.
