About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.


Adopt-A-School Initiative

Calendar icon
Reaching 60,000 OOSC, the EAC and Oando Foundation (OF) Project in Nigeria focuses on adopting 27 schools in nine Northern Nigerian States of Adamawa, Bauchi, Kaduna, Katsina, Kwara, Niger, Plateau, Sokoto and Taraba with particularly large numbers of out of school children (OOSC).

Each adopted school will receive infrastructural improvements; the establishment of Walk-in-Centres for OOSC; provision of a meal-a-day as a further incentive for children to attend school; provision of teaching and learning materials; teacher training; and training for School-Based Management Committee (SBMC) members and State Universal Basic Education Boards (SUBE) to support schools and help identify and enrol OOSC.

60,000 OOSC will be reached and supported to attend the adopted schools. 

Sustainability is built into the project from the outset by building the technical capacity of Local Government Education Authorities (LGEA) and SUBEs to extend and accelerate the school improvement programme. Advocacy will focus on extension across the targeted states and into the other Nigerian States with the intention that the approach can be replicated and adapted to reach many more OOSC in Nigeria.
