Model School Initiative (MSI)

A full one-third, at least 10.5 million children of Nigerian children are not in school, and one in five out-of-school children in the world is Nigerian, which is the highest rate in the world.  The problems faced by the education sector are lack of dependable infrastructural facilities, inadequate classrooms, teaching aids (projectors, computers, laboratories and libraries), paucity of trained teachers and poor / polluted learning environment.

To support the existing education in the select areas, VCARE Foundation has come up with the “Model School Initiative – a Comprehensive Education Programme” to adopt schools to ensure that the children have access to quality education and are equipped for a prosperous future.

VCDF aims to deliver a Comprehensive Education Programme (CEP) that is holistic and inclusive to improve the quality of education for all learners and keep them in school. This is centred on investing in educational infrastructure as inadequate infrastructure is a barrier to enrollment and participation; capacity building for teachers to enhance teacher delivery and empower adolescents with 21st century skills to enable them to be agents of change and drivers of progress.
