The Problem

Around Four hundred and ninety million Africans still live in extreme poverty with the majority of them being women and children.
The African woman is almost always at a disadvantage as the cultural, legal, economic and social conditions make things harder for her than her male counterpart. Yet, societal expectations places a demand on her to take care of her welfare, health, nutrition and also that of her children.

African Children by 2055
Research shows that the population of children in Africa is on a steady rise and will reach 1 billion by 2055, making it the largest child population among all continents.
At present, more than 30% of the child population in Africa suffers from chronic malnutrition, and physical as well as mental disorders. Many African children are also being excluded from schools, a higher percentage being African girls, limiting their opportunities for success.

As of 2019, 33.8 million children in sub-Saharan Africa were out of school. The situation is particularly dire in Nigeria where even though primary education is officially free and compulsory, about 10.5 million of the country’s children aged 5-14 years are not in school. Only 61 percent of 6-11 year-olds regularly attend primary school and only 35.6 percent of children aged 36-59 months receive early childhood education.
