The most vulnerable children
There are approximately 17.5 million orphan and vulnerable children in Nigeria. Orphans are one of the most vulnerable groups in any society, often at increased risk of abandonment, poor health, child labour, early, child and forced marriage and abuse. In Nigeria, it is estimated that 95% of all orphan and vulnerable children do not have any access to medical care or education.
Education can transform a child’s life. It gives them the ability to thrive and dream, and the tools and skills for an independent future. It can help break cycles of poverty and uplift entire communities. Unfortunately, Nigeria has the highest rate of out-of-school children, with 16 million children out of school.
When a child becomes an orphan by losing one or both parents, often their education is one of the first things to suffer. Without a breadwinner or family income, the child’s family simply cannot afford to send them to school.
