Hopefield Network is a brand that works in collaboration with individuals and organisations with focus on engaging and developing the potentials of primary school pupils of across Nigeria.
The Annual Children’s Day Program (“the Program”) comes up on May 27 every year, to commemorate the day set aside by the United Nations Children’s Education Fund (UNICEF). Our target group is primary school pupils between the ages of 6 and12. The Spelling Bee event was introduced in the Program in 2017 with positive feedback. This therefore requests your support and sponsorship as outlined later in this document.
The Nigerian population is estimated at 193 million in 2017 and 60% of this population is less than 45 years old. The United Nations’ projection is that by 2030, Africa will be home to the youngest population in the world and 50% of Nigeria’s 300 million population will be below 20 years old. Unfortunately, according to the Federal Ministry of Education, 10.3 million out of 20 million of the world’s out-of-school children are in Nigeria.
The Foundation for Leadership, Good Citizenship and Community Development (an NGO- CAC/IT/NO104428) has recognised this opportunity and we are committed to contributing to develop this sector. Hopefield Network is an initiative under our foundation designed to identify opportunities in the education sector and proffer solutions which will involve private and government participation.
