Save Street Children in Nigeria

Summary

This project will empower 10000 street children in the North East of Nigeria. Around 1.5 million children are homeless in this region of Nigeria. They are without food, shelter and education.

This project will feed these children, give them a home and send them to primary and secondary schools, including the establishment of a recreational and educational centre.

Challenge

The North East region of Nigeria is home to around 1.5 million homeless children with another 3 million unable to go to school. These children go to bed hungry, they are homeless, and become easy recruits by violent extremist and terrorist groups.

Solution

This project will feed 10000 homeless children, send them to primary and secondary schools, and provide shelter for them. The project will also establish a recreational and educational centre to support the children with sporting activities as well as educational materials. The project will also ensure that peace tenets are taught in this recreational and educational centre.

Long-Term Impact

The project will empower 10000 children to help them escape starvation and provide them with standard education and peace tenets that will prepare them for a sustainable future as good leaders and adults.
