Mission

Our mission is to help reduce poverty and foster economic growth in Nigeria through programs that promote equity and access to quality education.

More than 10 million children of primary school age in Nigeria - more than any other country in the world - are denied access to basic education. Most of those children are girls. And more girls than boys also drop out of primary school. The disparity in basic education enrollment, retention and completion among girls in Nigeria represents a serious constraint to its development. And there are significant regional variations associated with gender disparities in education in Nigeria. In fact, the educational outcomes for girls and women are much worse in the North than in the South. In the northern region of Nigeria only 4% of females complete secondary school. Therefore, based upon the belief that educating girls is a key to economic development in Nigeria, addressing the disparities in girls’ education is a top priority for our organization. We provide support to female Nigerian students who need financial assistance to complete their education. The recipients include secondary school girls in northern Nigeria, as well as college undergraduates in both the U.S. and in Nigeria.

Most Americans are not aware of the magnitude of the basic education crisis in Nigeria and how it is affecting our lives here in the United States. Therefore, in addition to providing financial assistance to female Nigerian students, we are committed to serving as a catalyst for enhancing public awareness in the U.S. about the critical need to expand access to quality education for more than 61 million primary school-age children, and 71 million adolescents in developing countries that are not in school. A major component of our mission is providing technical assistance and resources to teachers who want to use the basic education crisis in Nigeria as a vehicle for helping their students understand what global interdependence really means, and instill in them a sense of global responsibility. We all benefit when citizens of developing countries can read, write and fully participate in social and economic life.

PCNAF

PCNAFs current efforts include:

1) A scholarship program that provides support to promising female students in need of financial assistance to complete their secondary school education. It was created in an effort to help eliminate some of the barriers that have discouraged or excluded Nigerian girls from the benefits of basic and advanced education.

2) A partnership program with U.S. secondary schools. It is designed to advance public awareness about the millions of children in Nigeria and other developing countries that are denied access to basic education. PCNAF provides teachers with instructional resources to introduce their students to the universal basic education (or Education for All) movement, a global effort to ensure universal education to all children ? both girls and boys ? with an emphasis on gender equality and the elimination of disparities.

3) Advocacy efforts on behalf of ?Education for All? legislation in the U.S. Congress.
PCNAF is partnering with the National Peace Corps Association to promote advocacy in support of the "Education for All" Act within the Peace Corps community.
