ABOUT

THE ALMAJIRI CHILDREN.

Almajiri Children: “Migrant students” sent from home to learn islamic teachings. This follows the Almajiri system of education, for children often below the age of 10, which is a decades-long practice particularly predominant in Northern Nigeria.

The nature of their journeys often places them in tutelage of scholars, far far away from home. However, these scholars often lack the capacity to fully support the children and make adequate provisions for their welfare. As a result of the level of negligence present within this system, the basic rights of these children are often abused with widespread exploitation - becoming a deeply-rooted systematic nightmare for the Almajiri children.

Vision: To establish an education and social welfare system that support Almajiri Children in communities in Northern Nigeria and across West Africa.

Mission: To reduce the educational and social inequality of Almajiri Children.

Our Approach

  1. Government accountability: Government has the specific responsibility to protect the rights of children and increase investment in the education and welfare of every child.
  2. Community responsibility: A community-driven solution to address the issues within and created by the Almajiri system.
  3. Holistic Approach: There must be a unified model that is adopted across all affected regions.
