STORY ABOUT US
WHY WE DO THIS WORK
Nigeria has over 200 million people, with about 50% below the age of 18. Unfortunately, the country has one of the highest number of out-of-school children in the world, and many of those who are able to go to school, still find it difficult to get sustainable employment. Hence, an extreme rate of poverty, with about half of its population living on less than $2 per day. Interestingly, despite the increasing rate of job seekers, many employers struggle to find individuals with the right skills and experiences needed to fill vacant positions. Therefore, it is crucial to bridge the gap between school and work, so that young people from low-income communities can build the career that they love, get quality employment, and rise above poverty.

Help us build our new Library & Career Resource Center
Having realized that many of our students did not have access to books and other resources needed to complete their assignments, do further research and improve their learning, we started a mini library under the tree last year as an urgent intervention.
Today, we are working to renovate a dedicated library space inside their school with your help. The space will house the library, a reading corner, mini computer lab, career resource desk, and serve as a safe meeting space for our girls’ empowerment program
Here are ways you can help and how we will recognize you
- Learning Hall – $2500
- Mini Computer lab – $2000
- Reading corner – $1500
- Book Space – $1000 (taken)
