Learning Without Limits (LWL)
Learning Without Limits (LWL) aims to reduce the digital divide and gaps in access to virtual learning for adolescent girls in Kaduna state, provide additional opportunities for access to quality, wholesome education in light of pandemic restrictions and limitations of educational curricula, and enhance the subject matter skills of the adolescent beneficiaries to improve performance in specific subject areas and demonstrate a community inclusive approach to improving access to quality education for girls through the involvement of state and non-state actors.
The closure of schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic has forced 39 million students out of school. This is in addition to the over 13.2 million children already out of school before the pandemic in Nigeria. With the emergence of technology and the innovation of virtual learning, LWL seeks to support the beneficiaries with technology gadgets, including Tablets, Power Banks and earpieces, for supplementary education in five key subject areas. In addition, the beneficiaries will also enjoy capacity-building in Digital Marketing and Graphic Design, Climate Action, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and Basic Life Skills following UNICEF curricula.
The project “Learning Without Limits” is an educational opportunity that benefits 50 female students in Kaduna Metropolis. Forty of the beneficiaries were selected from 8 public girls’ secondary schools in Kaduna North, Igabi, Chikun, and Kaduna South Local Government Areas, in addition to 10 of our Educational Subsidy Programme (ESP) beneficiaries.
The LWL project is supported by the Girls Opportunity Alliance (GOA), a program of the Obama Foundation that seeks to empower adolescent girls around the world through education, allowing them to achieve their full potential and transform their families, communities and countries. GOA engages people worldwide to take action to help adolescent girls and the grassroots leaders working to educate them.
EWEI is partnering with the Kaduna State Government’s Ministry of Education, Ministry of Environment, Ihifix Innovation Foundation and Soso Care to actualise the two-year-long project.
