With a network of 7 schools in Nigeria- West Africa and in India-South East Asia, the InnerCity Mission School is a direct platform that offers free early childhood education as well as uninterrupted access to 6-year formal primary education for indigent children irrespective of gender, race, religion and ethnicity.
To compliment the free tuition and provision of education tools in our charity schools, children also receive free daily school meals.
This program supports indigent children who are forced to drop out of school, get “Back to School” within their communities. In addition, the InnerCity Mission carries out school development projects in underserved communities to improve the children learning outcomes.
In 2019 alone, over 25,000 indigent Children in 25 countries from poor households and underserved communities were provided with “back-to-school” kits, these scholastic supplies included; school bags, notebooks, school shoes, socks, stationary, school uniform and more.
As a result of natural/manmade disasters or violent crisis, indigent and vulnerable children especially, miss out on months or years of education. To bridge the gap of lost school time, and provide stability in such times of crisis, the InnerCity Mission ensures continued learning by providing learning materials, safe learning spaces and food aid to mitigate the effects of the crisis on the developing child which are all essential to continue and sustain learning.
The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on education is enormous but thanks to partners and donors of the InnerCity Mission, who through their continuous support ensures indigent children are not left behind in accessing education despite the restrictions in several countries and the lockdown of schools around the world.
This is our train the trainer approach which incorporates various teachers training programs where we up-skill, equip teachers and our network of schools for engagements in underserved communities, all geared towards improving children’s learning outcomes
