English Skills for 10 children in Alejolowo, Akure, Nigeria
Many children are out of school in Nigeria while million others engage in child labour and menial jobs which could not even get them through each day, because they lack needed skillset for the world of work and quality education to live a good life. Consequently, they struggle with poverty and stand a greater risk of being left behind among their peers.
We are leveraging digital penetration among out-of-school children in Nigeria to offer them quality education through our literacy development program. We deployed our solution on low-end smartphones — allowing them access to quality education regardless of their location or economic background. Through our employment portal, we ensure that our beneficiaries are paired with employment opportunities so they can gain valuable work experience, save up and go back to school.
Providing digital English literacy to out-of-school youths makes them competitive in the world of work, thereby improving their income margin in a knowledge economy. Our beneficiaries will be linked with internship opportunies after their English literacy development program with proven proficiency in English language, through which they can gain valuable work experience, save up to go back to school and give back to the society.
