Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to ensure that all children of school age in Nigeria get a basic primary education, while all adults that missed the opportunity as children have the opportunity now to get a basic education.
It's all part of making a better world.
We have the highest number of children worldwide out of school and a huge population of adults, possible over 100million who do not have basic education. This obviously has hindered the development in our country, my belief is that we would have a more stable and better run country if everyone has as the barest minimum a basic education. This would help alleviate of the social and economic ills we face.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by mostly the underprivileged, both children and adults. Geographically they will be spread across the country but the north will likely feel the impact most as most people there have no form of formal education at all.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
More employable workforce
Reduction in crime
Better health of the masses
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
The first measure would be seeing the reduction of the number of children roaming the streets begging or hawking. Secondly with the basics of education most of our out of work adults would be closer to being employed and the unemployment statistics will show a drop while possible we will also have an increase in self employed people in the country.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
