LIVE Vol.1 What is ‘Education’ in Nigeria?
Hello, this is Aria Intern🌞
It’s getting warmer and warmer, how are you all doing?
This time, we will show you the Airfunding live delivery that was conducted the other day, only on the note.
At Airfunding, Back2 School Africa from Nigeria, Faith Angels Ministry from Uganda, and Sasak Satu Swara from Indonesia participated in the commemoration of the first live, and exchanged views on the situation related to “education” in each country.
Vol.1 will introduce the founders of each NGO and discuss the current situation and activities at Back2School Africa in Nigeria.
Introducing the owners of NGOs in each country!
Anklin, founder of Back 2 School Africa in Nigeria. Back 2 School Africa is committed to supporting children who are not able to attend school under the mission “Make Education Available to All Children in Africa”.
Mr. Anklin participated in this live show from Germany. I am impressed again that I can communicate smoothly with various people around the world because of the spread of remote… !
Next, I would like to introduce Levi, founder of Sasak Satu Swara in Indonesia.
Sasak satu swara is an NGO that creates opportunities for children who do not have sufficient education in Lombok Island, Indonesia, and creates an environment where they can be active on the island. We are working on our mission to create a millennial who works in the community with the power of education. On the day, the children of Lombok also participated in the Live distribution!
The last one is Uganda’s Faith Angels Ministry with its founder, Andrew.
Under the mission of “The Power to Survive the Socially Vulnerable in Africa,” Faith Angels Ministry is working towards the vision of “Free Everyone from Poverty and Creating an Independent Community.”
The three countries and organizations share the same thing: education.
What’s the challenge? And what kind of activities are you doing to solve it?
Vol.1 introduces Back2School Africa from Nigeria.
Nigerian girl describes this reality. Now, the problem they face is… ?
A Nigerian girl, supported by Back2School Africa, spoke about two challenges that are preventing domestic education.
Internal conflict in northern Nigeria
At present, internal conflicts are intensifying in Nigeria, especially in the north. There are also terrorist attacks by bombs and explosions in schools. In fact, some schools were burned by a fire caused by a bomb, and some children were unable to go to school. The public sector has rebuilt the destroyed school and is working to improve it so that as many children as possible can attend school.
A more serious problem in Nigeria is the kidnapping of children. He says there is a daily loss of access to education through kidnapping and violence.
Currently, in Nigeria, we are working to improve the environment with the help of NGOs like Back2 School Africa to deliver an educational environment to the whole country in accordance with SDGs guidelines!
At Back2 School Africa, we want to correct the education of children and elimination of gender discrimination from an educational perspective.
The children gave us a song of thanks. I was very much encouraged by their message “you are special because it’s you” (you are special because you are the only one).
May there be a wonderful future for cheerful, cheerful children✨
Back 2 School Africa Founder Anklin Talks About Education in Nigeria
We’re going to go on to talk about education in Nigeria with Mr. Anklin, founder of Back 2 School Africa.
“To be honest, education in Nigeria is far from satisfactory. Nigeria has the highest number of children out of school in the world, with roughly 30 million children.”
As the population of Tokyo is about 13.96 million (as of 2021), there are about 2.1 times more children who are not attending school. If you look at the numbers, you can see that there are still challenges in the education situation in Nigeria.
“It’s also a reality that the government is not doing well (toward improving education). The level of education that is implemented in the country and the right to go to school are not as high as we expect. There are many things we have to do in light of this situation.”
“That’s why Back2School Africa works with a sense of purpose. First of all, we have introduced “STEM education” to improve the quality of education for children. (STEM Education is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, and is a general term for the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.) In the United States and Europe, etc., we are actively involved in education that meets the needs of today’s IT society and the times.) By doing so, you can learn scientific and technical skills. The introduction of this method of education has enabled many children to receive an education.
We also have an educational system for children living in rural areas. Compared to the city, it has been difficult for children living in rural areas to receive an education. Many families cannot afford to send their children to school because they are full of money for farmers or to live their lives. Therefore, we are working to improve the environment so that Back2School Africa can go to such a place and receive an education.
Pray that low-income children can go to school and receive an education. We are working to be something of the future for our future.”
In this way, the Back 2 School Africa is going to focus on
・ Introduction of a fulfilling education system
-Creation of a system to enable the education of children living in poor communities and rural areas
I’m putting emphasis on.
There are problems such as social conditions and unstable education levels on the part of the country that provides education, and poverty and location on the part of the education received.
We hope that the activities of organizations like Back 2 School Africa will provide more opportunities for children to receive an education.
This time, in vol.1 live, I’ve focused on education issues from the perspective of Nigeria Back 2 School Africa. We will continue to update on notes on the educational perspectives of Indonesian and Ugandan founders and local children. This is the only note that can see the contents of Live distribution, so please keep checking!
In this live broadcast, we were able to hear voices from children who are actually going to school in each country. Personally, the uniforms that the students are coming to are different from each country, and I was attracted to it because it is colorful and very lovely!
Well then, everyone, please have a good day🌿
