BENEFITING: Jallohs Upright Services Of North Carolina
Upright Lead Academy
Over the last decade, Nigeria’s exponential growth in population has put immense pressure on the country’s resources and on already overstretched public services and infrastructure. With children under 15 years of age accounting for about 45 per cent of the country’s population, the burden on education and other sectors has become overwhelming. Forty per cent of Nigerian children aged 6-11 do not attend any primary school with the Northern region recording the lowest school attendance rate in the country, particularly for girls. Despite a significant increase in net enrollment rates in recent years, it is estimated that about 4.7 million children of primary school age are still not in school. Increased enrollment rates have also created challenges in ensuring quality education and satisfactory learning achievement as resources are spread more thinly across a growing number of students. It is not rare to see cases of 100 pupils per teacher or students sitting under trees outside the school building because of the lack of classrooms. Upright Lead Academy is located in heart of the Nation, the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja and we are determined to give quality and qualitative education from cradle to college to every children in Nigeria at affordable rate. We are duly register with Government with a mandate to offer vocational programmes, leadership and empowerment skills. We hope with your support we can make the needed change happen in our society and save the future of our next generation through education.
