From Moshood Karim
I am absolutely thrilled to hear about the incredible initiative being spearheaded by Rep. Almustapha Ibrahim Aliyu and the House of Representatives in Nigeria to reintegrate over 14 million out-of-school children back into the education system.
This is truly an inspiring effort that will not only enroll these children in school but also provide them with essential skills that will enable them to become valuable contributors to society.
What I find particularly noteworthy about this project is the fact that it is not solely focused on education, but also aims to address the issues of poverty and value disparities that have left so many children out of school in the first place.
Known as the ‘Nigeria Mass Reduction of Out-of-School children and Youth Project’ (NiMPROP), this initiative is set to span over four years and promises a substantial reduction in the number of out-of-school children through non-formal accelerated education systems and alternative schooling programs.
This is truly an all-encompassing effort that seeks to tackle the root causes of the problem, rather than merely addressing the symptoms. It is heartening to see that the House Committee is collaborating with various government agencies and is committed to lifting 16.5 million Nigerians out of poverty.
This is an incredible effort that will not only benefit the out-of-school children, but also significantly reduce poverty across the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria.
Overall, I am deeply impressed by the vision and dedication of Rep. Almustapha Ibrahim Aliyu and the House of Representatives in Nigeria, and I am certain that this initiative will have a transformative impact on the lives of countless children and families throughout the country.
It is truly heartwarming to see such a powerful and compassionate response to a critical issue, and I have no doubt that this project will serve as a beacon of hope for generations to come.
