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.
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.
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
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.
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.
