Boost Almajiri pupils in Kwara

The Federation of Muslim Women’s Association of Nigeria enrolled 200 children living in Koro Afoju in a primary school near their homes. They covered the families' costs for Parents/Teachers Association levies and they provided the students with uniforms, textbooks, and other learning materials. The children live in a settlement that was established for people who are blind and have largely met their daily subsistence needs by begging on the street. Parents expressed optimism for their children’s opportunity to redefine their futures rather than joining their parents on the street.
