This US Mission Nigeria‘s $48.8 million investment in education will provide a better future for millions of Nigerian children and help create prosperous and prosperous communities across Nigeria.

LEARN to Read will help improve the reading outcomes of more than 3.5 million children in 5,900 schools and the ability of more than 35,000 teachers, principals and school support officers to support early grade reading in some 6,000 schools.

“The new USAID activity will ensure that school-age children and youth in Nigeria can safely acquire critical skills, such as literacy and numeracy, while developing critical social and emotional skills to progress to higher levels of education, training and employment.

Stephen Menard, Director of the USAID/Nigeria Oversight Program Office, said at the launch.

“The Federal Ministry of Education acknowledges USAID’s efforts over the past 20 years to improve literacy in Nigeria through its innovative programs,” Minister of State for Education Goodluck Nana Opiah said at the launch.

“LEARN to Read will build on close collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council and language/curriculum experts to support the mother tongue-based medium of instruction in the early grades.”

USAID’s education program targets the most vulnerable parts of the population, while supporting the Government of Nigeria to provide quality education.

Key areas of focus include increasing enrollment, strengthening basic education, building teacher capacity, and raising minimum academic standards for the reading curriculum.

The LEARN to Read activity will build on the achievements of the recently concluded USAID-funded Northern Education Initiative (NEI Plus), which improved reading outcomes for more than one million children in Bauchi and Sokoto states.

LEARN to Read will strengthen and expand reading best practices in the early grades in both states, designated as legacy states.

Leverage more state and private resources to infuse global best practices for teaching and learning reading in the early grades in the states.

In addition to supporting the two legacy states, LEARN to Read will also offer technical assistance to two other states (designated as launch states) and at least two other states (designated as on-demand states) as part of USAID’s mission to support education and reaching millions more children with lifelong skills in Nigeria.

These efforts will help develop a new generation of leaders equipped to help Nigeria meet the development challenges ahead.
