“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela
In every society, education is the bedrock of development. Any country that does not educate its populace is bound to fail. Unfortunately, there’s little or nothing to boast about when it comes to the level of literacy in Nigeria. A recent survey by UNESCO showed that despite improvements to the country’s education system, about 65 million Nigerians remain illiterate.
“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” Margaret Mead
One of our core objectives is to reduce the number of children that are out of school. We aim to support about 100 students per annum through primary and secondary school education. Our plan is to support educational scholarships in poverty stricken communities and advance our support beyond secondary education based on performance.

We believe that this is a step in the right direction to securing a better future for Nigeria. We intend is to increase the number of students we support yearly as we get more aid and support from our sponsors, partners, corporate organizations and charitable individuals; with the hope of reasonably fostering the development of our children, communities and cultures to help achieve a fairly distributed quality of life and education across the globe.
