Before one can read to learn, one must learn to read. Support a child to acquire the most important skill of literacy.
We are not giving up on getting some of Nigeria's most vulnerable children ready for the future. You should not too
When children have the tools to learn, there’s no limit to their promise. And once a child learns to read, he or she will be forever free to dream.
Every person – child, youth and adult – deserves to be equipped with the essential life skills to be able to survive, to live and work in dignity, and to continue learning.

The Problem

In Nigeria, millions of primary school-aged children lack the foundational literacy and numeracy skills to enrol, complete and/or transition to secondary education. According to the Nigeria Education Data Survey (NEDS), one of the most comprehensive literacy studies conducted in Nigeria, more than 50% of children in Primary 1 to Primary 3 could not read a word and 60% of grade 3 children could not complete a single-digit addition problem. Without access to the knowledge, tools and support to acquire basic literacy and numeracy competencies, current and upcoming generations of Nigerian children will be denied the opportunity to develop critical skills for lifelong learning, empowerment and sustainable livelihoods.

Our Solution

FastTrack is an accelerated learning program designed to provide access to and improve the quality of literacy and numeracy instruction available for children and youth who are out-of-school and consequently missing out on quality learning opportunities in Northern Nigeria. Over the next 10 years, Fast track will empower 1,000,000 out-of-school children with the foundational reading, writing and math skills needed to enrol, complete and/or transition to secondary education or even engage in gainful employment.

What You Can Do

With just 10,000 Naira ($26), you can sponsor a child to acquire basic arithmetic and literacy skills in just 1 year. With your support, we can create a brighter future for every child through the power of education.
