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.
Working with out-of-school children has always been a year-round event. We have an open door policy, where every child is welcomed, and, it doesn't matter what academic term it is. 😊. We are always excited to have them in.
Nigeria has a staggering statistic of 11.2 million out of school children, already. The highest in the world. It is huge...it is scary. However, there is hope.
So each passing day, we launch out, hoping to get one more child out of the population, and onto a journey of renewed mindset and self discovery. Every child can learn, if given a chance, we believe.
Today, we met some amazing out of school kids. They are eager to give school a try after more than a year out of school... and so are we eager to have them in.
Again, we are thankful for all our terrific friends and sponsors. Together, we keep doing more!
We can't de-emphasize the role of education in national development. 😇 #LetTheChildrenLearn#OutOfSchoolChildren#EducateAChild#EveryChildCounts
Our Back to School Project - #BagSwap is usually carried out few days after school resumption
This helps us greatly to knowing those pupils who need the push ups, You would be amazed at the number of children in public schools who are without basic learning materials. They got plastic bags #NylonBag to school, instead!
So, THIS YEAR AGAIN. WE ARE SWAPPING SOME BAGS... You can partner with us to do this, Let's Swap together! - Ensuring that no child is left inadequately equipped for learning. ❤️ Send a mail? firstname.lastname@example.org. Or DM us for further details
Education is every child's right
