Nigeria—Education Project in Borno State

Client: Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Limited

Duration: 2019-2020

Region: Sub-Saharan Africa

Country: Nigeria

Solutions: Governance Fragile States

The Education Project in Borno State supports the state government’s recovery in the wake of insurgency and provides targeted relief to vulnerable and displaced populations. The project centers around the educational needs of vulnerable households and internally displaced persons (IDPs). DAI provides technical, management, security, and logistics support.

The project builds the capacity of teachers, increases access to learning aids, and renovates damaged school infrastructure. The team is implementing a cascade approach to training teachers and administrators, maximizing program funding available for the provision of educational materials.

It is anticipated that the active participation of local communities and government officials in the intervention supports continued maintenance and use of the schools—and paves the way for joint public-private initiatives in Borno’s education sector.
