Join us to tackle the education challenge in Africa

Our Work

Slum2School is focused around advocacy, community interventions, policy formulation, and youth engagement. As a volunteer-driven organization, we work with thousands of volunteers across slums, hard to reach villages and underserved communities where we engage the community to find the best sustainable solution to provide education for children and young people. We build new learning centres, collaborate with community schools to improve education quality and work in partnership with the government to improve the public schools if they exist in these communities.

Our Programs

Scholarship programs

Children from vulnerable and low-income families are adopted as beneficiaries of Slum2School and placed on scholarship in our partner schools, adopted schools or Slum2School owned schools. Our beneficiaries are enrolled in schools, continuously followed up and provided with all educational supply materials throughout the school year. 

Individuals and corporate organizations work with us to sponsor our children for certain years through their education.

School Support

Most schools across slums and remote villages lack basic infrastructure and learning tools required for 21st-century education. Slum2school tackles this by adopting public schools in partnership with the government and providing new learning spaces, adequate infrastructure and up to date technology to ensure that every child irrespective of their background have access to equal educational support.

Community support

Our community support programs include periodical visits to various communities where our beneficiaries live. We carry out advocacy, train and offer support services in health, family planning, gender-related issues, skill acquisition, and distribution of food, educational and other relief materials.  

Our skill acquisition team and emergency distress team are hands-on to ensure we support families of our beneficiaries in distress to enable them to stay focused on their education.

Teacher support

We believe that every teacher should be well equipped, inspired and updated with new learning methods as this equally aids quality learning. Our program involves providing competent teachers to our adopted schools and supporting teachers through training and improved learning methods. Individuals and corporate organizations partner with us to sponsor, support and improve our teacher program across our various schools.

Psycho-social support

There are several psycho-social factors that impede learning. We address these by providing support with the aid of our medical team, counselling team, legal team, and partners through counselling and rehabilitation when necessary. We also rolled out a Mentorship Circle to address this and every month series of projects are organized to intervene in communities where such support is needed.

OUR LEARNING SPACES

Donate Page

Early Childhood Development Centre

The ECDC is designed to serve about 600-1000 children weekly. It has four different learning spaces and over 120 learning tools including an interactive smart board, a functional e-library, and creative tools. The center is very critical in helping Slum2school beneficiaries reach their full potentials, as it encourages thinking outside the box as they engage and learn within the facility.

Computer Lab

Computer education and application are great assets to a child especially in the 21st century. A child who has access to a computer with the right learning tools will learn faster and will be more excited about learning. A Computer device with internet access is one of the most powerful tools students can use to learn new skills, advance current lessons, access the world and compete favorably with their peers globally. The facility is now being used by 18 primary schools across the mainland education district.

Enterprise Development Centre

Created for our community volunteers to acquire basic skills to enhance their knowledge and choices in life. The program included different phases with various skills and a total number of 35 community-based volunteers have been trained in one or more skills. The first phase of the skill acquisition program did not just empower our community volunteers but also enabled some of them to generate the required resources, start small businesses to continue their education and equally help their families and communities. Some of the skills involved;

    1. Bead Making
    2. Soap Making
    3. Shoe Making
    4. Bags making and designs
    5. Business Startup and management 
    6. Financial management
    7. Provision of Startup Capital and monitoring.
