Millennium Fellowship Project: The African Renaissance Learning Partnership -TARLP.

Project name: The African Renaissance Learning Partnership (TARLP)
About: The African Renaissance Learning Partnership, is a social impact project targeted towards quality education (SDG-4). Our focus is to redirect the wheels of the educational system in Nigeria, one child and school at a time. For many generations, our education has been plagued by faulty and weak policies, low funding and resources, lack of quality, poor integration and interpretation of subjects especially in the primary and secondary education sector.
Renaissance signifies rebirth, which is what we want to bring into our education system. To combat the illness of theoretical based learning in our curriculum by creating a more practical approach to education, combating the superficial interpretation and teaching of subjects due to lack of funds.
This project will meet the goals of the National Economic Empowerment Development Strategy (NEEDS), by recognizing education as a vital transforming tool and a formidable instrument for empowerment which will culminate into wealth creation, employment generation, poverty reduction, scientific innovations and value reorientation amongst our children and youths.
We seek to improve practical interpretations of our learnings even beyond the classrooms in areas such as science, technology, art, literature, vocational skills, entrepreneurship and communications by being the platform that creates a learning partnership between theory and application which will greatly enhance the employability of our youths in the future. This will also improve the economy of the nation at large in areas of new scientific discoveries, technological innovations even from children in primary and secondary schools in Nigeria, thus putting us on the map of the world positively in terms of technological advancement, which in the long run will attract foreign investment into our country.
By nurturing the root/bedrock of any society- education, this will expand into the development of other sectors including medicine, engineering, art, teaching, commerce etc.

Our aim: To rebirth the education system by creating a sustainable partnership between theory based learning and real life applications beyond the classroom, encouraging creative thinking and innovation.
- to reorient the minds of pupils and students on the importance of education in society and the impact of learning
- to encourage the government to increase its investment towards education
- to create an awareness in communities where educational biased still exist, on the importance of education
