Nigeria’s literacy rate was recorded at a concerning 62.02% in 2018, the lowest rate recorded of all countries Sun Books operates in.
Sun Books pilot to improve Nigeria’s literacy rate
Back in 2019, we implemented Sun Books tablets at Ireti Girls Primary School, Lagos, Nigeria. Our partners from Dream School Foundation and its founder, Dena Grushkin, an experienced teacher and key leader in this location, helped training teachers and students in literacy skills.
Since 2020, we are counting on Navitas Education Trust (NET) support, helping us to continue with the Sun books pilot at the Ireti Girls Primary School and scale the project to other schools and villages in the region.
In April 2021, we received the Australian Government’s contribution to the implementation of Sun Books in Nigeria. Thanks to this, we are reaching more children in off-the-grid classrooms who need quality educational resources to enhance their reading and writing skills.
