the management of IA-FOUNDATION has announced plans to host it’s first edition of the annual Out-of-School Children Summit in Lagos themed “Street to School to School: A Panacea to a Menace”.
The summit is a response to the increasing need to create national awareness about the menace of out-of-school children and the potential consequences of continuous relegation of universal education in Nigeria. The goal of the event is to achieve multi-sector awareness, involvement, and investment in addressing the embarrassing statistics of 20.2 million out-of-school children in the country. We want stakeholders to be self-aware of the relevance of contributing to efforts to take children from the street to the classroom.
The event is slated to be held on Wednesday, October 18th, 2023, at the Marriot Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos. The time is 10:00 am.
The event will feature other highly profiled individuals including commissioners, education influencers, corporate sector organizations, and government representatives among others. Highlights of the event include panel sessions, guest presentations, data analysis and presentations among others.
participation will be free but registration is compulsory. Link to be shared shortly.
