We're helping vulnerable children and young people get back into school and get back on track for their exams.
For just 60p a day, your sponsorship with Ibijoke Children Foundation will help a child in one of the poorest cities in Nigeria gets access to nutrition food, clean water, health care, and education.
Your sponsorship would help a girl like Kehinde from Ogun state grow up safely and happy.
All children have hopes and dreams, but poverty and injustice can hold them back. They might face violence, miss out on an education, or be prevented from claiming their rights.¬† But it doesn't have to be this way.
By sponsoring a child, you will help us work with local communities to overcome these injustices and unlock a child's potential. Your support will mean that some children, in some of the poorest parts of the cities in Nigeria can look forward to a brighter future.
So, the hopes and dreams of girls like Kehinde might one day become a reality.
Each community has different needs, but from ¬£25 per month you will be providing them with:
Education and child rights
We work alongside communities to better understand their children's rights, and how they can raise their voices to protect and provide for their children. Basic school supplies are crucial for educational advancement, your donation provides essenital school supplies for poor children in Nigeria.
The issues are varied; so are our solutions. We'll work with volunteer healthcare professionals, and also work with families to make changes that will keep them healthy. Your donation helps towards the cost of hospital bill and medicine.
We can provide training in skills, support widows and poor parents to start-up their own businesses- making an income and boosting their local economies.
Every day a child from africa died because they have no food to eat. A child that's had good nutrition would just shrug it off, but for a child that's really fragile and has a compromised immune system it becomes really life threatening. Your donation provides nutrients food they need.
The chance to learn can change a child's life
Every child has the right to an education whatever their background, gender or ethnicity. Ibijoke Children Foundation want to see a world where all children enjoy this right. Without the opportunity to learn children can't develop to their full potential. They're more likely to be trapped in cycles of poverty, poor health and forced labour often in dangerous environments.
Ibijoke Children Foundation supports innovative programme that give the most vulnerable children the chance to learn. We work with governments school, communities and parents to enable every child to access a quality education. We help children get back in to school for example, we provide textbooks, school uniforms, and paying for their school fees etc.
The holistic approach ensures that not only are the children keeping up with their studies, but also that are safe and happy after they leave school.
Poverty is driving a rise in the number of Nigeria ¬†child hawkers.
For those children that are in school already, they tend to hawk their wares before going to school and after school hours, they have to wake up very early and sleep late, this negatively affects their psychology, creates room for unseriousness and lack of interest in school work, difficulty in learning and thereby underachieving as a pupil /student that would eventually lead to dropping out of school even before having the basic education and this in the long run is detrimental to the society, only a few of these children can withstand the stress of this practice.
Hawking in the street would expose a child to the danger of automobile accidents, and they also risk being kidnapped for rituals and human trafficking, if it's a girl child she could end up being sold out to the child prostituting rings.
When the breadwinner of a family dies, the emotional loss is devastating. But the loss of financial stability in such a tough environment can have the most devastating and life changing impact of all. When the options are to eat or not to eat, most people in Nigeria¬† are forced to make choices that most people in the West cannot even begin to imagine being faced with.
With your help young widows in Nigeria can be given the opportunity to get education and vocational training of their choice,¬† for example, tailoring, soap making, baking etc. This would give them the chance to earn a living, to support themselves and their families.
