Obianuju Eloji – I Can Read And Write (ICRAW) Project

Date grant awarded: October 14, 2019

I am a passionate development professional with an interest in education and good governance. I value quality education and believe that it is key to development in my country Nigeria. During the course of my education and career, I frequently came across women and children who struggle to feed and/or faced all forms of abuse because they could not read and write enough to secure a decent job or make a living. I aspire to be an agent of development through education in my community and nation.

ICRAW (I Can Read And Write) Project provides free tutorials for women and children in rural communities in the Enugu and other parts of South-eastern Nigeria. The pilot project aims at filling the gaps in education in Nigeria by empowering these illiterate women and children with basic skills that will enable them to read and write. This project will give hope and confidence to the less privileged women and children to work towards achieving greater success in education and future trade.
