Our Education Cause
The goal of our Education Program is to make an impact in the educational sector beginning with providing quality education to underserved children and proceeding to support teachers and schools to raise the standard of education. We also recognize the need for informal and vocational training, and we aim to successfully drive these interventions for the young and old.
The PF Scholarship program provides free education in collaboration with partner schools to economically challenged students who show academic promise. This is achieved either through one-off grants or long–term admittance into the PF Scholars Program.
PF Scholarships are awarded each year after beneficiaries have been academically assessed, parents interviewed, and background checks have been carried out on their families to ascertain their economic situations. Shortlisted candidates are allocated to partner schools near their locations in Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states.
Other Educational Programmes
Wings Academy is a talent-mining and skills acquisition program. A pilot session ran in 2019 hosting close to 200 children and exposing them to Programming, Robotics, Music and Creative Writing classes. The result of the pilot test indicated the need to focus the program on economically challenged children and street children in particular.
A taster session held in 2022 with the Kids-off-the-street (KOTS) beneficiaries in Music, Computing and Chess. Plans are on-going to implement the program in the KOTS shelter.
