Primary Basic Education Support

Education

Enrolment in primary education in developing countries has reached 91% but 57 million primary age children remain out of school.

Community Development

An estimated 50% of out-of-school children of primary school age live in conflict-affected areas.

Youth Development

More than half of children that have not enrolled in school live in sub-Saharan Africa. 617 million youth worldwide lack basic mathematics and literacy skills.

The primary objective of our school is to give deprived, less privileged and vulnerable children access to Primary Basic Co-curriculum Education aimed at supporting curriculum implementation in the community through:

  • Primary Basic Education
  • Reading Development
  • Information Technology (computer) Classes
  • Child Psychology (involving care and support in response to the emotional and mental needs)
  • Homework Assistance Classes
  • English, Maths and Science Remedial Lessons
  • Material support (providing resources including school bags, food, food parcels, squeeze bottles, toiletries and clothing)

IMPACT OF OUR PROJECT

Nearly all of the studies focused on children considered at risk for school failure as a result of low income, limited familial resources, and/or poor grades. Further, our after-school programs offered a broad range of activities in addition to academic support. While the nature of the academic support varies, each program provides children with structure and adult contact.

The full impact of our program on the student’s academic performance appears to be mediated by other child and teacher factors, such as an increase in the child’s self-esteem and school bonding and changes in teacher perceptions regarding the effort and capabilities of the student attending our program.

Qualitative evaluations that we conducted, of our school and after-school programs, is that it served children from kindergarten through to 7th grade reported that the factors integral to the program’s success were the provision of a structured time and location for doing basic education, homework, remedial, reading and instructional support that we offer. We teach our children beneficiaries’ computers through e-learning and basic computer skills.

WE AIM TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT GOAL 4

Obtaining a quality education is the foundation for creating sustainable development. In addition to improving quality of life, access to inclusive education can help equip locals with the tools required to develop innovative solutions to the world’s greatest problems.

Over 265 million children are currently out of school and 22% of them are of primary school age. Additionally, even the children who are attending schools are lacking basic skills in reading and math. In the past decade, major progress has been made towards increasing access to education at all levels and increasing enrollment rates in schools, particularly for women and girls. Basic literacy skills have improved tremendously, yet bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides in achieving universal education goals. For example, the world has achieved equality in primary education between girls and boys, but few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education.

The reasons for the lack of quality education are due to a lack of adequately trained teachers, poor conditions of schools and equity issues related to opportunities provided to rural children. For quality education to be provided to the children of impoverished families, investment is needed in educational scholarships, teacher training workshops, school building and improvement of water and electricity access to schools.
