Educate a child and change the world!

A young population is rising, and they will have to solve some of the greatest challenges of the future, but the sad reality is that more than 30% of them cannot even read or write.”
The road to a better future for these disadvantaged groups begins with all of us. Starting with one change at a time, your donations will make a big difference.

About The Ziana Project


The Ziana Education Project is an initiative designed to 
provide disadvantaged, less-privileged young learners—particularly those affected by the insurgency in northeastern Nigeria—the opportunity to advance their education by providing them with quality learning resources.      

Over the past 10 years, the Boko Haram insurgency has ravaged the northeastern region of the country resulting in a surge in the illiteracy levels in the affected communities and states. With millions of people displaced, thousands of lives lost and hundreds of communities destroyed, a large proportion of interventions by humanitarian and government agencies have focused on providing victims with the basic necessities of life such as food, shelter, and clothing, relegating the need for acquiring education to a secondary or even tertiary role in some communities and displaced people's camps.

Education is the basic tool for the development of consciousness and the reconstruction of society 
-Mahatma Gandhi 
Our Impact so far ...
As the world celebrated another International Literacy Day on September 08, 2020, we launched the Ziana Education Project. This gave us the opportunity to impact the lives of young learners in some of the most deprived communities in Nigeria. With your donations, we were able to provide hundreds of books and a mobile library to complement the makeshift educational facilities in Shuwari internally displaced people’s camp in Maiduguri, Borno State, which has been the epicenter of the insurgency.
The journey to the future we want has begun. We have started rewriting the stories of disadvantaged young learners in northeastern Nigeria. We have delivered the first-ever mobile library for children affected by the insurgency in northeastern Nigeria. The library operates in Shuwari internally displaced people's camp and neighbouring camps in Maiduguri, Borno State.

We deeply appreciate all those who realised the value of this cause and supported the project in any way, big or small. To reach more children in other camps and communities in the regions affected by the insurgency, we are still soliciting your support and contributions. We have only started changing the narrative, and together, we can do so much more!!!
