Founded on implementing #SDG4 we take a rights-based approach to teenage education. We focus on enabling Akwa Ibom students to pursue their right to education by eliminating the barriers they face and ensuring that our activities and programs are innovative, evidence-based and sustainable. Not only does our research inform our own work, but it also contributes to an evidence base on issues affecting education in our community and informs the work of other actors in the field. Youth and education policies are closely interlinked, and youth work is often based on, and implemented through non-formal and informal learning.
The rigorous task lies in breaking this beautiful crowd into clusters of 30 and giving them the opportunity to share their needs, vulnerabilities, learn leadership and be heard. The picture looks good but feels better after the clusters have emerged into Akwa Ibom students who have made a commitment to stay in education, exceed and become the best of leaders in their sphere of endeavour starting with their community. Each woman and man deserves to choose her/his own path, as she/he responds to many longings — for a just world, for a breakthrough discovery, for a happy family, for a rewarding career, for a life well lived. 2891 students signed up needing 97 mentors.
