In Nigeria, millions of young people of all ages lack access to quality education opportunities. The reasons behind this can be attributed to all sorts of diverse and complex challenges with the educational system, from low academic achievement, outdated curriculum, poor teaching methods, inadequate funding, poor access and retention, low literacy and numeracy rates, poor infrastructural support and, above all, inequity! These issues prevent many young people from acquiring the skills they need...

As a child, I really struggled at school. Not only did I have difficulties with the curriculum, but I also found fitting in and communicating with my teachers and peers quite tough. It wasn't until I was older that I found out about Dyslexia. It made me think to myself, what if we had an education system that incorporated innovative approaches to learning so that no child is left behind?As someone with first-hand experience of the benefits that education can bring to Africa, I decided to launch...

When I was six years old, my mother died of HIV but I was never told what happened to her. Even today, talking about safe sex and HIV in my country, Botswana, remains taboo. As a young female activist at university, I was desperate to change the way young people view, and talk about, HIV/AIDS. During one of my courses, I read a research paper about a class on “sugar daddies” in Kenya that had reduced teenage pregnancy by 28%! This resonated with me as it shows that openly discussing issues aroun...

J’ai grandi dans une famille aux couleurs et horizons mixtes, à la fois chrétiens et musulmans. Ma mère est musulmane. Elle ne m’a jamais parlé de féminisme. Mais je réalise que l’éducation qu’elle m’a donnée s’est articulée autour de deux points fondamentaux : d’abord, elle s’est astreinte à toujours me faire jouir de la capacité de choisir.
