  • Nigeria has more out-of-school children today than any country in the world—10.5 million—of whom 60 percent are girls living in the North, according to the UN. Violent attacks and kidnappings have forced schools to close and thousands of families to flee, creating uneven and worrisome levels of dropout in some schools and overcrowding in others, limiting the access of internally displaced children and youth and burdening host communities and teachers.

    Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, Creative’s three-year Nigeria Education Crisis Response program works to expand access to quality education opportunities for more than 54,000 displaced and out-of-school children and youth ages 6-17 in Bauchi, Gombe and Adamawa states.

    In partnership with the International Rescue Committee and more than 30 Nigerian organizations, the program will expand access to quality alternative educational opportunities for internally displaced and out-of-school children and youth through 1,176 non-formal learning centers. Along with supporting these centers, which accept children of all ethnicities and religions the project will undergird opportunities offered by churches, formal schools, community centers and other places that address the needs of girls, orphans and vulnerable children, displaced persons and other deprived youth.

    It will establish non-formal learning centers in Qur’anic and church schools in order to incorporate life skills classes, student support services that are traditionally absent and a core academic curriculum that includes literacy, numeracy, Social Studies, and Basic Sciences.

    In each of the educational environments it supports or establishes, the Nigeria Education Crisis Response program will improve the quality of teaching and learning materials for literacy, math and life skills. It will also work to increase community engagement and support for schooling, as well as state and local government and civil society support for non-formal education and alternative education options.

    Nigeria Education Crisis Response Project is seeking applications from Qualified Nigerian nationals for the following positions:
