The Education for Vulnerable Children Project (TEVChiP)

Overview:

The Boko Haram insurgency led to the displacement of over 2.5 million people including over 600,000 children that are currently out of school. Among these are orphans, unaccompanied or separated from their families, some that have become heads of households that have to engage in survival sex to fend for themselves and their siblings. Many of the children have also become involved in various vices such as drug use violence, petty crimes and exposure to various forms of exploitation. The project is being implemented in Jajeri Bayan Texaco which comprises dwellers from different parts of Borno state including IDPs. The community lacks access to basic social amenities/services such as health care, water, schools and other necessary requirements resulting in poor standard of living. The population of this community is estimated to be about 50,000 persons including about 30,000 children. The community has no government owned school but the fees are too high to be accommodated by cash-strapp
