FOCUS AREA

EDUCATION

Education has the power to change lives, societies and nations at large. It is an essential pillar of every nation that champions growth and progress as it creates and shapes visionary leaders and nation builders who become key players on the global stage. Success in life is rooted in education, yet, this path is unavailable to millions of Nigerians because of cultural beliefs, insufficient funds, proximity to schools among various other deterrents. Millions of children are out of school, literacy rates are abysmal and teachers utilize outdated teaching methods, failing to prepare students to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

We are fighting to change this narrative by implementing early literacy programs such as reading corners that instill a love for reading in early and young learners, guided reading programs to support children in developing their reading proficiency and training teachers in identifying and screening children with early learning difficulties.

HEALTH

Being in a state of good health is paramount to being productive and functional members of society that promote economic growth and prosperity. Healthcare problems that many Nigerians face involve the availability, accessibility and affordability of healthcare services. The presence of any of these factors contribute to the burden of healthcare on the individual leading to high out of pocket expenses, high medical tourism, consumption of alternative or counterfeit drugs and an overall distrust and disregard of the Nigerian healthcare system.

We fight for the right of every Nigerian regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, disability or beliefs, to be able to access health care services without financial hardships when they need it and wherever they are located. We organize community dialogues and outreaches where we bring multi-sectoral stakeholders in the healthcare industry together to unravel and tackle the intricacies of the healthcare system in Nigeria in order to implement programs and policies that benefit communities at large.

FINANCIAL STABILITY

With youth unemployment on the rise and being tagged the ’Poverty Capital of the World’, Nigeria has been shown to be a difficult environment to live an optimum life due to the financial hardships borne by her citizens.

We address these problems starting from the primary education level to tertiary institutions and beyond. At the primary level, we instill basic financial principles in children to equip them with money management skills and tools. At the vocational level, we train unemployed youth in digital skills to enable them secure and retain formal employment or entrepreneurships.
