After many years in the field supporting children and young people to access quality education, we are now more convinced that, achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goal Four (SDG 4), i.e., “Ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all" in Africa requires progress in all the other 16 SDGs and a society where democracy is upheld. And it will take the actions of young people to make this needed progress. Our new commitment alongside our education-related activities is to provide digital tools, opportunities and resources for young people in Africa to be more engaged in the welfare of their communities as Active Citizens.
We run an Advocacy program and a 'Give a Teach' program to improve access to quality education in Nigeria. Our advocacy program ensures that children are given the right environment and support to complete at least 12 years of education. The ‘Give A Teach’ program improves children’s access to quality education by closing the funding and quality teachers gap affecting education in Nigeria.
The ‘Give a Teach’ program crowdsources volunteer teachers for low-resourced schools to teach missing subjects. It also crowdsources scholarships for girls and young women to complete 12 years of education.
I Take Actions
