SAFE Scholarship Programs
Despite the Universal Basic Education program, Nigeria's Ministry of Education has stated that over 10 million children are currently out of school. This program aims to identify an individualistic solution for children not in school, especially those children who do not have access to educational opportunities or cannot afford to be in school. The program will start its first cohort with 20 children in 2021. We project to have over 1,000 participants for the program by 2030.
