What we're about
Pick-A-Book Initiative is based on the premise that every child has the right to be educated and reading is a key foundation of all forms of education. Our vision is to support the academic enrichment of young, underprivileged Nigerian children through social-emotional learning and the provision of sound education.
What we’re currently up to
In Nigeria, many school-aged children attend schools but do not receive quality education, especially in low-income communities. To address this issue, Pick-A-Book has set out to respond to the critical need for high-quality education using a holistic approach to support the educational, physical, social, and emotional needs of school children. This includes access to comfortable classrooms, skilled teachers, libraries, first-aid facilities, clean water, nutritious snacks, counseling, and wellness workshops.
Pick-A-Book Initiative currently sponsors underprivileged children by paying their tuition and providing necessary school accessories. However, due to the poor condition of many schools, we plan to build a new school to serve as a learning hub for young children.
We've come a long way!
