Who We Are
Edushine Educational Support Foundation is a young non-profit in the field of education, set up to help under-served students from public secondary schools.
Our Mission Statement/Value Propositions:
- To assist students of selected public schools to maximize their educational potentials by providing extramural classes and mentorship program to underprivileged students in secondary schools towards facilitating a brilliant future for them.
- To build healthier communities by fostering healthy living, free health screening and basic treatment for the vulnerable(poor)
- To empower families and individuals to conquer poverty and hunger by empowering young people to become entrepreneurs.
The current passing rate at the secondary school exit exams is pathetic - with a 70% failure rate, and a meager 39% pass rate in Mathematics and English language being reported in the West African Senior School Certificate Examinations/NECO.
What will become of this mass of students in the future who are neither fit for further education in the university nor employable. Every year, Nigeria produces a mass of functional illiterates who can barely read or write.
The Foundation aims to help provide quality education to stem this tide and create a better future for students from poor backgrounds who attend public schools.
What change do we envisage as the outcome of our activities?
EduShine’s core goals of promoting qualitative education are expected to yield better secondary school outcomes among public secondary school leavers.
We will be serving the identified under-served areas by providing quality extramural classes to boost student performance. Our mentoring programs are designed to help them to become more accomplished adults and life-long learners.
Improved passing rate at secondary school exit examinations leading to improved tertiary education admissions numbers from public secondary schools chosen for the project are important outcome metrics for us.
In essence we exist to facilitate the graduation of more responsible and mature adults who are not only lifelong learners but committed students ready to be the change we all wanted in Nigerian society.
Today, with the challenges facing education in the 21st century, the need for EduShine foundation is clear.
Global bodies and nations are now faced with the question: what quality of education?
When you look at development economics, evidence supports our goal as UNESCO projects that globally, over 40 years, income per capita would be 23% higher in a country with more equal education (UNESCO, 2014).
When you educate, you empower and break cycles of poverty. We are committed to changing the story by providing more equitable educational opportunities and thereby joining the world to fight poverty.
