AfriGrowth Foundation Reading Competition Helps Children in Nigeria To Be Better With Their Lives
"Once a child can read, she is literate"

In a bid to improve literacy in Nigeria amongst children, AfriGrowth Foundation through their Child Development Intervention through Education aims to raise the standard of Literacy in public primary schools in Nigeria. Within the period of five years, The AfriGrowth Literacy Competition has benefitted over 30,000 pupils across 5 states in Nigeria. Aimed at primary school children aged between 5 and 13 years, Our approach to increase the literacy level of the pupils began with establishments of Libraries in various Local Primary Schools, followed by reading activities with the pupils, and the Reading Competition which will test the impact we have created in the lives of the children. In the year 2018, AfriGrowth Foundation will hold the grand edition of reading competitions for FCT Area Councils in Abuja.

AfriGrowth Foundation Child Development initiative not only helps the winning children, but aims to broaden the academic scope of a new generation of Nigerians and to help them access the education they need to realize their future ambitions. Pupils participating in the competition are coached in spelling, pronunciation and modulation, using specially developed study guides to build their literacy, cognitive writing and numeracy skills. 

AfriGrowth Foundation’s team actively volunteers to coach pupils, sharing their enthusiasm and celebrating their progress.
