The United States Agency for International Development in Nigeria (USAID/Nigeria) is seeking applications from eligible organizations to implement an activity entitled ‘Addressing Education in Northeast Nigeria”.
The activity will address education in Northeast Nigeria targeting internally
displaced people (IDPs) and host communities in Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe States.
This activity will address acute emergency education needs while laying the foundation to rebuild and transform the education system in Northeast Nigeria, redressing long-standing education grievances related to the insurgency and building trust in Nigerian education institutions.
Many out of school girls and boys, ages 6-15, will benefit from equitable access to certified high-quality basic education opportunities, including those who will gain access for the first time.
Specific LGAs in the targeted states will be identified using information collected through the Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA) process conducted at the beginning of the activity, and in collaboration with the Nigerian state governments, USAID, and donor partners.
