Roads to Hope: Supporting Mobile Education in Nigeria

7 January 2022

We are committed to supporting people caught up in conflicts across the world, providing hope and opportunities to displaced communities.

Right now, thousands of children in central and northern Nigeria are displaced due to ethno-religious conflict. Terrorist groups continue to target educational establishments, killing students and teachers and carrying out mass abductions for ransom. Last year, the United Nations Children’s Fund estimated that more than 1 million children would be deterred from attending school due to violence in 2022.

Last year, we launched our mobile education project in central Nigeria. The concept is simple: when it is unsafe for children to travel to school, bring the school to the children. Since October 2021, our mobile education van has travelled to 8 villages, supporting more than 6,700 children with scholastic materials and providing lessons in English, maths and personal health/hygiene.

We are thankful to our dedicated and skilled partner Rev Canon Hassan John who is responsible for overseeing and delivering the project. Special thanks must also go to all those who have donated to our mobile education project, making our work possible.

With your help, we can bring education and opportunity to even more children:
