CIVICX

(Nigeria)

This is an initiative of the Civic Foundation for Innovation, which is supported by tech giants, including Google Oracle. The program provides digital skills and financial literacy training to children and women in under-served communities such as Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps and areas affected by insurgencies in North-East Nigeria.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and closures of schools, there has been a drastic rise in out-of-school children and in a bid to ensure unfet- tered access to the classroom the CivicX Northern Code Project was birthed. This involves digitizing STEM education content, in the predominant local languages and broadcasting the content via free-to-air national and local TV stations current- ly across five northern states – Kano, Adamawa, Borno, Nasarawa, and Kaduna.

“So far, the results have been amazing with thousands of participants,” says Mosope Olaosebikan, Civic Innovation Lab.
