Community Outreach for Educational Change
Community Outreach for Educational Change - COEC is an educational Non-Governmental Organization established in 2016 with the sole aim of responding to educational ills and gaps in the Nigerian education sector. It is solely aimed at influencing educational processes for improved and better educational outcomes especially for children in rural/low income homes who cannot afford private schools and are at the mercy of what the public sector offers. We at COEC are examples that it is possible to go through the Nigerian education system and attain excellence. We exist to create conducive environments for true education to occur. We believe that each child deserves access to quality education irrespective of social class and location. We believe that with the right push and consistence, public education in Nigeria will offer qualitative educational services one school at a time.
Teachers and pupils from primary schools are our primary target. We also have programs/packages designed to help secondary school students and parents. COEC has a special awareness campaign launched to ensure that communities and especially parents join with the right attitude in the educational process of their children. At the primary school level, our target schools are those owned by the government as research has shown that most of the schools fall far behind in providing quality education aimed at giving pupils an edge when it comes to meaningful learning and fitting into higher educational levels.
