"In north-eastern Nigeria, 2.8 million children are in need of education-in-emergencies support in three conflict-affected States (Borno, Yobe, Adamawa). https://www.unicef.org/nigeria/education The 270 children in the primary schools adopted by Rural Education Advancement Project in Adamawa and Niger States have had their education disrupted, thus affecting enrollment, attendance and retention. Also because their parents are poor, the pupils lack educational materials needed to learn effectively.
