Every year Slum2School Africa identifies vulnerable out-of-school children across several under-served communities and States in Nigeria, the volunteers and partners raise resources, funds and develop new partnerships to provide scholarships and enroll the children into schools where they are educated and supported through school.
Since 2012 Slum2School has enrolled over 1660 children into schools and supported over 32,000 children through various programs and this year was no different.
The Fundraising campaign to sponsor one thousand out of school children into school was officially kick-started on Saturday the 18th of August 2018 and was themed #AThousandDreams.
