Millennium Fellowship Project: The Educate-Me Pivot
The Educate-Me Pivot (T.E.M.P) is an initiative that was driven by the desire to promote quality education of secondary school students living in Mushin, Lagos state, Nigeria. The selected school for our project was Ransome Kuti Senior Secondary Grammar School. Students living in this area experience many challenges in acquiring educational resources and they lack the motivation for learning due to high levels of poverty, illiteracy and underfunding from the government. Our project was aimed at mitigating some of these problems. We coached the students in Senior Secondary School 3, on the necessity of education and possible career paths beyond secondary school. Also, we provided mathematical sets and exercise books for the students.
