How Adedayo Falusi’s FAO foundation is exposing children to right education
Children are without a doubt the most vulnerable human beings. They are primed by nature to be at the receiving end of the problems nature and man, with the former most guilty, have created.
Nigeria is a major flashpoint for violence towards children. The causes are majorly man-made, ranging from wars, insurgency and environmental disasters. Nigeria accounts for the largest number of out-of-school children in the world, and according to the United Nations, the crisis deepened in 2020, following the outbreak of COVID-19, which led to the closure of schools across the world.
The world body stated that by April 2020, close to 1.6 billion children and youth were out of school globally, further complicating a problem that has reached endemic status in Nigeria. More so, education is poorly financed in the country, with the bottom of the pot normally reserved for the sector in the annual budgetary allocation.
However, since its launch in 2017, the Falusi Adedayo Omolade Foundation (FAO) Foundation established by great philanthropist, Adedayo Omolade Falusi, has been mitigating the effect of poor educational system on children in the nation.
One of the ways the quality of Nigeria’s primary and secondary education is poor is that children are not exposed to the right kind of learning. In the modern day academic system, Information Communication Technology (ICT) is now a major part of learning at all levels; a practice which is common in Europe and United States of America.
Such in Nigeria is a mere wish, not even a far cry, particularly in public schools, where education is cheaper and so in terms of quality when compared to what is obtainable in private schools.
But FAO Foundation would not give less than the exposure it gets, as its founder, Adedayo Omolade Falusi, is based in the United Kingdom. He maintained that the charity organisation is determined to expose Nigerian children to the right academic learning experience.
“At FAO FOUNDATION, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. IT is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress of growing kids in this area”, wrote Adedayo Falusi
Continuing, Adedayo Falusi said, ” kids that circumstances of life rubbed them from exposure to the right education. We are always striving to bring out potentials in them especially in field of Tech as one of the fastest growing industry. In making a difference, we invite you to learn more and lend your support”.
The foundation has been central to the plights of women and vulnerae young ladies, organising free empowerment programmes, giving regular donations for businesses and paying medical bills of women who cannot afford their bills after delivery in hospitals.
