Phase I (SDG 4): Personality development Skill - Communication, Nigeria
Education (SDG 4)
Communications & Soft-Skills
The UNICEF report estimates that about 10.5 million children between the ages of 5 and 14 are not in school. Early childhood education only reaches 35.6% of children aged 36-59 months, and 61 percent of 6-11-year-olds regularly attend primary school. Net attendance is even lower in the north of the country, at 53 percent. It's a huge challenge to re-integrate out-of-school children into school. Education marginalization is influenced by gender as well as geography and poverty. Over half of girls in the north-east and north-west states do not attend school, as their primary net attendance rates are 47.7 percent and 47.3 percent, respectively. Northern Nigeria is plagued with education deprivation due to various factors, including economic barriers and sociocultural norms and practices that discourage girls from attending school.
The first cohort was completed in collaboration with Student Guide and equipped children with effective communication skills for social interactions in schools or workplaces. All the sessions were held virtually and were recorded. During Phase II, the emphasis will primarily shift from personality development to technical skills such as soft skills training like Microsoft Office and web development.
