Street to School Initiative supports the education programs of out-of-school children and primary school drop-outs in Nigeria through her annual education sponsorship scheme and establishment of tuition-free schools where children are provided with basic learning materials, and enjoy free meal. As a non government organisation, we aspire to see a world where no child is left behind in attaining quality education.

Free tutorial classes for high school students in rural communities starts tomorrow -18th January, 2014. And we look forward to having our first session with them....teaching Mathematics!!!! Time: 8:30am - 12noon. #Project25
As we sat in class to discuss their academics, girls-talk and their relationship with their mentors. It was a beautiful moment for the girls to relish their experiences and mentoring relationship with their mentors, in the last six weeks!
Remember, Project25? ;)
It is an ongoing mentoring scheme for high school girls in rural communities...a project organized by Street to School Initiative (Formerly, Resource Sharing Network).
It has been an awesome moment, having friends and terrific individuals from across the globe, mentor young people, Young Girls...! A wonderful feeling for the girls to be connected with people who care so much to become their Mentor.
In Rural Communities, It's easier for a Girl to have mobile phone than to have an EMAIL ADDRESS. It is almost a taboo. Lol! And, so this has made communication pretty difficult..however, it seems we have got ourselves some Class Acts! Who could go the extra miles..to making some incessant phone calls, just to stay in touch with …
"If education for all must be achieved, we still firmly believe that ACCESSIBILITY is key. Bring the School Closer to The Home and Communities.." -Tosin
This morning, we did visit some schools (3) in preparation for our monthly free tutorial classes for high school students in rural communities and also for some school-based mentoring session. At the High Schools, we had some exciting time with the students, especially girls as we talked about issues that girls are faced with and how to combat the challenges. While transiting from one school to the other, we decided to visit a local government primary school...in the community. This is one public primary school that serves EIGHT communities and the population in each classes are better imagined than seen. There were some 80-100 children in each classes, from Nursery class to Primary six! This is definitely not a conducive environment to learn...as the classes are densely populated. As an advocate for Quality Education and Educ…
The need for women empowerment is inevitable especially in areas where children are out of school due to lack of fund. We believe that to every empowered mother, there is a child whose formal education is guaranteed and future, secured.
On the 9th day of January, 2014, we did provide some financial aid to a mother of one of our sponsored children in rural communities....Photograph shows Director of Street To School Initiative with the mum.
Huge Appreciation to our Child Sponsor and Donor -Ofunneka Youth Empowerment Trust Fund..(OYETF)#Street2SchoolInitiative. God Bless!

Our fear was confirmed on Wednesday, 1st of January, 2014..when one of our Mentors called in to share with us her endeavors to reaching her past Mentee and present Project25 Mentee. In 2010/2011, Lateefat was paired with a dedicated Mentor and Friend of RSN. Lateefat aspired to study Accounting at the University. She truly was a lovely girl full of aspiration, although she had her shortcomings and deficiencies in some core subjects. Lateefat was eager to have a Mentor, maybe someone she could chat with, a The mentoring program lasted for some 6-9months. And, Lateefat was paired with a young professional lady and graduate of Accounting from the University of Lagos. However, there was a lapse which we failed to manage as an organization. We failed to find a Mentor replacement for Lateefat...when her Mentor lost her job and could not maintain a mentoring relationship with her any longer. "I could remember she would call me so often, but because of my loss of job, I was not keen to a…
