Out-of-school children : World Bank approves $611m to support FG

The World Bank has approved 611 million dollars to support the Nigerian government in tackling the rising statistics of out-of-school children, who are currently put at about 10.5 million.

The exercise will run across the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

This step by the World Bank is to support the federal and state governments in their efforts to foster inclusion in education, which is in consonance with the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan of the Federal Government.

The funds would be provided through the Better Education Service Delivery for All Programme, aimed at bringing out-of-school children into the classrooms.
