Our Book Drive 2017 and #Reading and #Digital Literacy Skills Programme is targeted at children and young persons aged between 4 -14 years, including the under-represented girl-child. We will work with 12 schools/centres in hard to reach communities in Nigeria.
We are embedding a much-needed education awareness initiative in a country where approximately, one-quarter of students in primary schools drop out of school (World Bank). This programme is all about preparing the young to reposition their mindsets and equipping them with global tools. This is our succession plan for equipping our future leaders.
Can you imagine…
More than 10.5 million children are out of school in Nigeria (UNICEF) and Nigeria has the highest number of out of school children in the world (World Bank). In truth access and quality of education is stunted!
We believe the Book Drive 2017 and the ChiYoWo #Reading and #Digital Literacy Skills Programme will do the following for 4-14-year-olds in hard to reach communities:
1. Enhance strong literacy skills
2. Develop lifelong literacy skills
3. Improve on reading habits in controlled and designated spaces
4. Encourage school enrolment
5. Increase student retention in chosen schools and centres
6. Reduce illiteracy rates in hard to reach areas
