Poverty, geographical region, the educational attainment of parents and child labour have been identified as the leading contributors to a poor rate of conversion from primary to secondary school.
Emmanuel Scholars was created in response to the dire statistics on child education in Nigeria; in particular, the conversion from primary to secondary school.
We seek to improve the conversion rate by undertaking to fund the entrance examinations of prospective scholars and the secondary school education of selected scholars.
Scholarship funding is raised from donations from a wide range of sources, including individuals, corporate entities and religious institutions, amongst others.
We operate a transparent system that gives our sponsors and governmental agencies access to information on all our processes, as may be required.
We subject our policies and processes to scrutiny and independent review, to ensure effectiveness and continuous improvement.
We ensure that whenever in our care, beneficiaries of our scheme and their guardians are treated with respect and protected from any unsafe acts/persons.
