World Bank supports Nigeria with $611m to get children back to school

The World Bank will support Nigeria with $611m to get children back to school under the Better Education Service Delivery for All programme, the Coordinator, Prof. Gidado Tahir, has said. Tahir made this known in Kaduna on Friday at a meeting with officials of Kaduna State Universal Basic Education Board, on modalities for the implementation of the programme.

The BESDA national coordinator explained that the project is being supported by the World Bank to tackle the problem of out-of-school children in the country. According to him, the alarming rate of out-of-school children has remained a worrisome phenomenon in the country that must be addressed.

He explained that BESDA would essentially focus on increasing access for out-of-school children and ensuring that children who attend school could read, write and manipulate figures.
