Back To School Programme – Educational Materials

There are an estimated fifty-nine million (59,000,000) children who are out of school, thirty million (30,000,000) of them live in Africa. In addition, 1 out of 6 adolescents is not in school, totaling 65 million in 2013. One third of these live in South and West Asia, another third in sub-Saharan Africa, where there are more adolescents out of school today than in 2000 [UNESCO]

Our desire is to ensure that no child is denied the opportunity to acquire basic education because of his/her social status, sex, family background or circumstances beyond their control.

Every year AFRICYEF visit’s Ogbodi-na-Ibe Community Primary School and many other primary schools in Nigeria, work with the teachers to identify children from less-off homes and provide them with books, writing materials, and school uniforms.
