OUT-OF-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

OUT-OF-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

BACKGROUND: THE NEED

According to the International Displacement Monitoring center December 2015, Northern Nigeria currently has an internally displaced population of 2,152,000 in the 13 northern states.  85% of the IDP population are displaced as a result of the Boko Haram Insurgency resulting in Nigeria becoming the largest population of internally displaced persons in Africa…IDMC.

Out of School

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation has released a shocking report indicating that one out of every five Nigerian children is out of school.

In what is clearly a national disgrace for a country that is the world’s eight largest oil producer, the UNESCO Education for All Global Monitoring Report (EAGMR) says Nigeria holds the world record of having the highest number of its young people out of school.

With approximately 10.5 million kids out of school, Nigeria dominates twelve other countries with which it accounts for 47 percent of the global out-of-school population.

Nigeria is one of only four among these twelve countries where the number increased in absolute terms,” the report noted. “It now accounts for almost one in five out-of-school children in the world.”

Although, UNESCO officials blame the drop in school enrolment in some countries on the decrease in aid between 2010 and 2011, anecdotal evidence suggests that the monumental corruption at all levels of government might have worsened Nigeria’s case.
