As part of our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals and its successful implementation in Nigeria ReadABookNigeria Initiative has employed the following to meet the Fourth goal; and our three targets. To find out more about that see out About Page.
At ReadABookNigeria Initiative (RABNI) we charge ourselves with
– identifying and implementing improved learning methods for at-risk children
– identifying and implementing learning edtech tools relevant to our focus groups
– Developing research materials and advocacy contact for improved literacy policies in Nigeria
– liaise with educators/organisations willing to volunteer and be the bridge that connects these tools to struggling learners and out-of-school children and ensuring continuity is established.
In achieving the above, we’ve partnered with numerous organisations including TED, US Embassy Nigeria, Korean Cultural Centre Nigeria, Predictive Network, Project Literacy, Co-creation Hub and schools to bring improved tools to the less privileged learners.
We run learning circles throughout the year that takes new sets of students through curricula best suited for them.
As part of Project Literacy’s Community of Practice, in 2018 RABNI joined over 100 literacy practitioners across the world in over 20 countries to develop a Tech Guidance Document for developers of edtech tools. this document was launched (March 29th) in Washington DC to a selected audience of literacy partners and will be made public after the launch. Can be found here
We have also partnered with the officials in charge of Camps where persons displaced by the Boko Haram Insurgency in Northern Nigeria has been placed to bring TEDEdCLubs to the children, most of whom are currently out-of-school. Given the peculiar environment of these students others necessities such as food and clothing are also being sourced for by RABNI and donated to the children and their families.
