Access To Human Right & Justice Initiative.
This project proposes to enhance the basic education of children and illiterate Adults in the eight villages in ( Ovia north east,) which are Igbekhue,Odighi,Odiguetue,Uhiere,Owan,Osasinmwinoba,Obarenren all in Edo state, Nigeria west Africa region and will serve approximately 1800 families in Edo state .
Basic education for the children and illiterate Adults is the backbone of the community therefore it is viewed as a human right since education contributes to the reduction of both absolute and relative poverty. Basic education, in particular, helps to alleviate poverty by helping poor people improve their lives. Mothers with some education raise healthier families.
Children and youth with basic skills and knowledge can read and handle numbers, which gives them access to information and thinking processes that give them more choices about how to behave in their families and then in the community. Adults can make more informed decisions about political and social events that affect the quality of their lives.
In Ovia north east, Edo state villages and surrounding areas accounts teaching aids and basic equipment available for educational tasks are minimal, even though parents and teachers alike agree that more adequate and creative teaching methods are needed in schools to stimulate learning incentives therefore this project will contribute towards the development of education in these areas.
The local communities elders have requested participation from us to take part the task of establishing education skeletal and the framework of basic education and buildings through the development program.
