Street to School Initiative is a registered non-profit organization which sponsors the education programs of out of school children and primary school drop outs in underserved communities and street. Our core programs are Education sponsorship, School Support Programs and Empowerment schemes for vulnerable women and mothers of sponsored children. #Women #Children
"Education is not simply about making schools available for those who are already able to access them. Inclusive education is about being proactive in identifying barriers and obstacles learners encounter in attempting to access quality education, as well as in removing those barriers and obstacles that lead to exclusion. No child may be excluded based on perceived difference such as sex, ethnicity, language, religion, economic condition or ability...." UNICEF
This summarises our activities at Street to School Initiative.

You all know that for some years now we have been helping previously out of school children get back to the classroom to learn. And, while we have some of these sponsored children in other private schools in Lagos State, we have others who attend our established, non profit school - #HelpersAcademy.
Thus far, one of our major challenges with the children we serve has been lack of recommended textbooks. As only one child in every 15 students own a textbook (Maximum of 4! ). It has been pretty frutile exercise asking guardians/parents to buy textbooks. They seldom do, because (1) some of them feel it is our responsibility to provide textbooks (practically, everything!) because we persuaded them to release their ward/children to school. They were not ready for it. We came knocking on their doors to have the children. So, we gotta fix it!!??! (2) Other parents/guardians who truly cannot afford the cost.
