The exclusion of uneducated adults all over the world is a call to action for every change makers. We should all the concerned that education is growth itself, without education a certain percentage of our population, then we are seating on a keg of powder.

Our adult students have been the most motivated by our team. Motivation keeps initiative moving. We engage them, even outside the classroom, to be actively involved in the socioeconomic and sociopolitical instances in their communities. We reside with them, we don't stay up and only come down to them ocassionaly to teach them. We are their eyes, everyday.

They see us around, meet us in the religious houses, cross each other on the road to farm, etc.

English language is the official language in Nigeria, thus the need for everyone to have basic knowledge of writing, reading, speaking and spelling. Many of our adult students are encouraged, invited and brought to classroom by their friends, who had been enjoying the learning.

We do less publicity, because our learners themselves, see this as a great opportunity for them to bring back lost hopes.

Thank you and your team for your words, I checked your idea, and it is an head up.

Dear Christina,

It is humble to have read about your initiative, I took my time to go through most of the contents on your Platform - Challenge, they were really inspiring.

I understand that we are in the same category of work for Sustainable Development Goal 4,. which specify on "...education for all...".

It would be of our interest to work with you on some of our projects.

Thanks,

Segun Abiri
