In estimation, the population of out-of-school children in Nigeria is around 10 million.
Being the highest country ranked with the most number of out-of-school children, there are numerous factors leading to this problem in the country.
- High rates of poverty
- Gender which also covers discrimination, child marriage, and gender-based violence
With this, majority of the children in Nigeria do not have any accessibility to good education. Eventually, the cycles of poverty goes on and on and on. The good news is many organizations are working their best effort to give quality education to the country. They are actually reaching for the most underserved communities and solving the root causes of this concern.
