The Challenge

Today, Nigeria has one of the highest rates of educational exclusion in the world, with a huge proportion of children and youth not attending school. The educational opportunity gap that separates Nigeria from the rest of the globe is more than just enrolment. It is also about learning. People are denied the chance to reach their full potential and escape poverty, insecurity, unemployment, and climate change problems because they lack learning opportunities and platforms.

ATLAS Initiative is a nonprofit organization that promotes lifelong learning by creating access to platforms for sustainable development.

The act of being a volunteer has tremendous advantages especially as a young leader as it helps in developing your mindset on providing services to humanity.

Our Approach

While access to knowledge and skills for all learners in low-income communities is daunting, there is also an excellent opportunity to bridge the knowledge and skill gap in the most remote African communities. By working together with communities, we can help them gain access to formal and non-formal learning and support them as they move from illiteracy to contributing to global sustainable development. Together, we can close the knowledge and skill gap among rural learners and their families, enabling them to build the abilities they need to live sustainably and advance sustainable development.

Our Story

Access to learning and school was inspired by a back-to-school drive championed by Habeeb Balogun, a volunteer in a small community in Ikorodu who had tracked, fundraised and enrolled thirty (30) children back to school.

Our Model

The ATLAS model emphasizes education for sustainability and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, peace and nonviolence, global citizenship, and cultural variety and contributes to sustainable development.
