AYGF HOLDS BLOOM PRE-LAUNCH

In line with AYGF’s mission to ensure maximum impact for minorities and vulnerable communities, we are thrilled to announce our latest initiative: the BLOOM (Bridging Learning Opportunities for Out of School Minors) Project.

According to a 2024 report by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Nigeria has one of the highest rates of out-of-school children globally, with girls disproportionately affected, making up 62% of the over 20 million children lacking access to education. This represents a significant rise of over 96% from the previous estimate of 10.5 million in 2021. 

In response to this alarming increase, AYGF held a Pre-launch of the Bridging Learning Opportunities for Out-of-School Minors (directly addressing the core issues outlined in Sustainable Development Goal 4 – Ensuring Inclusive and Equitable Quality Education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all).

The pre-launch was held July 4th 2024 at LEA Primary School in the Karonmajigi community, FCT Abuja and Key stakeholders, including representatives from UNESCO, FCT-UBEB, CSACEFA, and Karonmajigi community leaders graced the event. 

Our Executive Director, Dr Arome Salifu in his opening remark, noted that the major goal of the BLOOM Project is to get at least 2 million out-of-school children aged 5-10 back to school by 2030. He further stated that the BLOOM initiative represents AYGF’s commitment to starting small but impactful efforts in communities like Karonmajigi to create a world where every child has the opportunity to be educated.

The event featured a welcome rendition and drama performance by the pupils showcasing the impact of drug abuse on young people. To inspire these students and keep education at the forefront of their minds, AYGF paid the fees for 65 at-risk students and will enrol 30 out-of-school pupils from the community into the school by September 2024.

Your support can make a significant difference in the lives of these children, and together we can ensure every child has a chance to BLOOM.
