AfriGrowth Foundation to organize Reading Competition for FCT Abuja LEA Primary School
-Once a child can read, that child is literate
Having successfully established 29 libraries in four Area Councils in the FCT Abuja; AMAC, Bwari, Kuje and Gwagwalada, AfriGrowth Foundation is organizing the grand finale reading competition for the FCT Abuja. The competition is aimed at bringing together more than 160 pupils from Local Education Authority (LEA) primary schools located in the four area councils.
How did we get here?
In a bid to improve literacy in Nigeria amongst children, AfriGrowth Foundation through the Library Literacy Program aimed to raise the standard of education in public primary schools in Nigeria. Within the period of five years, The AfriGrowth Foundation Library Literacy Program 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 finally reading competition, which will evaluate the impact of the program on the lives of the school children.
AfriGrowth Foundation Library Literacy Program not only helps the winning school 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 reading 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.
Join us as we celebrate success!!!
