For every out of school and less privileged African child under the age of 18 years, Back to School Africa Initiative stands out as a fast growing social enterprise advocating for human capital evelopment through resource mobilization and collaboration with relevant partners for the execution of education reform projects that promotes inclusive and sustainable economic growth.
Nigeria, one of the largest economies in Africa, has the highest number of out of school and street children in the world, (10.5 million), even though basic education is compulsory. This issue spells jeopardy for future of Nigeria because children/youths are the next generation of leaders and education is a primary prerequisite for effective leadership.
To this end, Back to School Africa Initiative was founded with the primary aim of building the future of Africa by providing access to quality education and welfare to out of school and less privileged children in undeserved communities across Africa, improving human capital development policies and promoting reform based leadership to eliminate socio-economic inequalities and achieve sustainable, inclusive and equitable economic growth.
As a volunteer driven developemental organization committed to providing quality education to children in local and remote communities in africa, we are interested in improving the knowledge, leadership skills and competencies of our volunteers
