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.
It's been our #BagSwap project month and we have been paying it forward to children in other schools. We have been donating school bags, notebooks and stationary to children in need because we understand what if feels like 💪

Special admiration and thanks to our wonderful friends, sponsors, volunteers and partners.
