The overall quality of education in Nigeria is extremely poor, which in turn has lowered demand for education and led to poor academic performance. Of 30 million school-aged children, 10 million have not enrolled in school. USAID programs support equitable access to quality basic education through teacher training, support for girls’ learning, infrastructure improvement, community involvement, and reading and literacy skills development. 

USAID's Education program in Nigeria aims to:

  • Improve basic education; and
  • Provide social assistance for vulnerable populations.

Early reading and literacy programs contribute to long-term development.
