Effect of COVID-19 on Nigeria’s Education Sector

UNESCO estimates that out of the total population of students enrolled in education globally, more than 89% are currently out of school because of COVID-19 closures. This represents 1.54 billion children and youth enrolled in school or university.

In this episode of I Am Change Podcast, Korede Azeez talks with Amina Abubakar about how Nigeria’s education sector might suffer or thrive as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Amina is the Coordinator of FlexiSAF Foundation.

FlexiSAF Foundation provides access to education for vulnerable and marginalized children who otherwise wouldn’t have access to quality education. Their goal is to ensure these children with the tools they need to become superstars.

What happens to vulnerable children who would normally struggle to access quality education?

Is it too late for Nigeria to adopt digital learning on a wide scale?

We answer these questions and more. Find UNESCO’s link to digital learning solutions: en.unesco.org/covid19/educationresponse/solutions
