Who We Are
Creationsbase Education Foundation is a non profit organization set up to reaffirm the importance of reading and effective technology use among young people by providing access to relevant information that encourages the development of young people and their communities.
We started in February 2019 as Educate a Child, which is a initiative born to reaffirm the importance of reading books and effective technology use among young people aged 8-16 years old through programs in the Isheri-Osun district in Lagos, Nigeria.
Nigeria has seen rapid population growth in the last decade and the rising number of children under 15 (41% of the population) requiring basic education is taking a toll on the country’s resources.
10.5 million Nigerian children are out of school (highest in the world)
20.1% is the rate of education accessibility
60% of those out of school are girls
In northeast Nigeria (conflict zones), at least 496 classrooms have been destroyed and 1,392 classrooms have been damaged
In an approach to tackle ever-present literacy and education challenges, the Nigeria Vision 2020 document has outlined plans to make the curriculum in schools more relevant to the needs of the labour market with emphasis on ICT diffusion and targeted skills development. In turn, there has been a large response by the public, private, and civil sector to address the transforming educational needs of Nigerian youth such as the introduction of audio-visuals in classroom learning, digital media programmes, distribution of educational tablets to students, and training of teachers in modern literacy skills (source: Global Business Coalition for Education).
