Empowering minds through literacy

The IQRA Foundation- Access to Books is a registered not-for-profit 501 © (3), a volunteer-driven organization working with adolescents across West Africa to improve learning conditions and create pathways for successful completion of secondary education. We believe that children regardless of geographic location should have access to quality education.


Lets work together to create impactful change

One in three adolescent girls from the poorest households around the world have never been to school, and estimates show that only 25 percent of the poorest girls in low-income countries complete primary school.


Our Mission & Vision

We are committed to advancing the rights of vulnerable children, especially girls, by providing access to quality education. Our impacts are measured in how many children, families, schools, and communities we can partner with to improve equitable learning.

Access to Learning Materials

Engaging young children in a culture of active reading through community partnerships

Transition support- Exams and Mentoring using the 6 C approach

Providing WASH resources to decrease disease related school absenteeism and promote dignity

Providing access to safe learning spaces and reading rooms

Partnering with schools to engage Teaching delivery at the Right Level for every Child


Our mission is to improve learning conditions for children from less privileged backgrounds across West Africa. TIF addresses barriers to quality education among adolescents (mainly girls) in Nigerian schools through direct partnerships with students and teachers.


To fulfill our mission, we have the vision to provide an accessible learning ecosystem that focuses on underperformance and allows our student/family partners to improve their livelihoods while breaking the cycle of multigenerational poverty.

Our work

Education is a fundamental human right. Why does it matter?

Access to quality education can empower citizens to make positive contributions to the growth of an economy and break the cycle of multigenerational poverty. Competencies to make health decisions, meaningful civic engagement, improve life expectancy, improve livelihood, and equal opportunity to nurture innate skills stem from access to primary education.
