Quality Education is the key to human development. It is a very vital tool for the development of any society. The knowledge that is attained through education helps open doors to a lot of opportunities for better prospects in growth, as education is a means of empowering children and adults to become active participants in the transformation of their societies. No country can achieve sustainable development without education as education raises people’s productivity and creativity as well as promoting entrepreneurship and technological advances, hence the importance of education cannot be overemphasized.
Sadly, not every child has access to quality education in Nigeria. Since 2011, conflict has forced more than 2 million people to flee their homes in North-East Nigeria. Millions of children are now deprived of the chance to go to school. In Borno State for example, 3 in 5 schools are closed, whilst 1 in 5 have been destroyed altogether, about 19,000 teachers have been displaced from their classrooms while an estimated 652 have been killed. These children are therefore being deprived of quality education which is essential for their development hence the need to curb this problem is of paramount importance.
In that regard, Radio School, an initiative of South Saharan Social Development Organization seeks to come to their aid. Radio School provides curriculum-based lessons on Radio for JSS2students in English, Mathematics, Civic Education and Basic Science sothat pupils from disadvantaged school and children who do not go to school at all can get the same quality of learning as children in better schools.This initiative is aimed at giving every child quality education that they deserve.
We can’t do that with your support, let’s join hands to give these children the quality education which they deserve. With as little as five thousand (N5000) naira, you can donate a RadioSet to a school thereby improving access to quality education for our school children.
