About the Project Over 260 million children in the world do not have a chance at education. According to Globalcitizen.org, as at 2018, with 13million children out of school in Nigeria, the country has the world’s largest number of school age children out of school. Many families are struggling to provide this basic need for their children. The covid-19 pandemic has affected many families in various ways and with very little to no support, many families in Nigeria are struggling to stay afloat, particularly families from low-income backgrounds. In situations like this, the cost of education i.e school fees are considered less priority and I can understand why. For this reason I have dedicated my 25th year on earth to this cause, hoping that with your support we can keep 25 young people in school. Living for me means giving others a reason to keep going. It’s important that our future is secure and to aid that, quality education should be provided to children who are the leaders of the future and the present. As you may know, stable life, better opportunities, confidence boost and many more can arise from good quality education. This project aims to support 25 young people from low income backgrounds and I know I just can’t do this alone but with your support these children can stay in school. 100% of funds raised would go towards: o One year of school fees cost for all 25 children o School essentials: uniforms, books, stationeries o Christmas celebration event for all 25 intakes and some families Please help me keep these 25 children in school for another year by donating any amount possible, no amount is too small. #25for25 About Me My name is Precious Onyenekwu Tatah, a recent university graduate, a professional Dancer, Choreographer as well as a natural hair activist challenging stereotypes, actively educating and empowering communities where possible.
