Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to influence educational policies in the North Eastern states of Nigeria for qualitative and low cost education for the almajiri's
It's all part of making a better world.
I want to ensure that these vulnerable are given a shot at education to enable them compete positively with their peers.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by orphans and vulnerable children (almajiri)
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Total renovation of existing school structures and construction where none existed before.
employment of qualified teachers
Free tuition or affordable school fees
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
The first step is raising the level of consciousness among parents and wards of these children, so that they would understand the need to their children to get western education.
Secondly, increased funding for education in the budgets of all Northeastern states.
With more of these students in school, the number of children begging on streets and highways would reduce.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
