Project Aim:

To provide affordable, quality education to those in our crisis home and to others in the surroudning communities

The Challenge

School education in Nigeria can be problematic. In recent history government schools have been in decline, with many schools unable to even pay teachers. The schools that are operational offer have extremely low educational standards. Many have rejected government schools and rely on private education. This leads to the problem of school fees, with only wealthy families able to afford decent education for their children.  

The Solution

We started employing quality teachers to educate children in our crisis homes in 2009. Our teachers caught a vision for a larger project which involved providing affordable education to our children and children in the wider community. Since then we have received government grants (Australia, Belgium) to construct fantastic facilities, employed enough teachers to keep class sizes small and opened out doors to the local communities, including Muslims.
