The Big Urgent Problem

Millions of secondary school students from poor households and communities in Nigeria, especially girls do not complete secondary school, and are potentially growing to become young adults that will pose a serious security threat to society and economic activities in the future if not urgently addressed.

For instance, 55% of girls and 43% of boys from poorest families do not complete secondary school. Secondly, there is education and learning inequality, this is because data shows that poor children get about 19.7% learning compared to 69.4% learning that children from middle- and upper-income class get in Nigeria. Without access to quality education, millions of today’s teenagers with huge potentials and bright future will end up uneducated, unfulfilled, poorly skilled, unable to unlock their creative potentials, unemployable, risk child-marriage and health challenges, and uneducated mothers will be unable to read basic medical prescription or support schooling of the next generation of girls, thereby continuing another generation of poverty.

We can stop this trend and save the next generation, one child at a time and at scale!

The Community We Serve

The KNOSK N100 A Day Charity School is located in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) of Nigeria with an estimated population of about 200,000 residents. Kuje has vast arable land that should be farmers delight and an agricultural hub feeding, contributing to food security, creating jobs and spreading prosperity for the residents. But this potential is yet to be tapped, as  majority of the inhabitants are low-income earners who eke a living majorly from peasant farming, petty trading and civil service. Majority of Kuje communities lack motorable or accessible roads, residents depend on wells for water, most public schools and health centers are poorly equipped, electricity is epileptic and poverty is visible in Kuje community. As stated by the the Nigeria Bureau for Statistics (NBS) in a 2022 Report stated that 72% of Nigerians in rural areas have multidimensional poverty. Kuje community is reflective of this data.

Our Theory of Change

At KNOSK School, we believe that boys and girls from low-income families and rural communities have huge potentials that can be shaped through a transformative education that comprises: action learning, problem solving, technology, vocational skills and leadership development. Such an empowering education will transform educationally disadvantaged and poor children into highly productive, innovative and excellent youths creating exceptional solutions, and contributing to developed, just and prosperous nations.

How We Work

Average class size is 20 students, teacher to student ratio is 1:20 students.
We admit student only in JSS at the beginning of every school term in September in accordance with Nigeria Government Education Regulation. Admission process begins in April when we commence publicity, children pick admission forms for free, get screened and write our admission exams for free and only those who score our mandatory cut -off point of 50 marks get admission into the school. To ensure that it is the children from poorest households that gain admission into KNOSK School, we conduct mandatory house visits to all potential students before admission is issued.

To ensure that all students are tested to ascertain the true level of their comprehension, we do PAPER TYPE assessments from admissions through Continuous Assessments and examinations. Our workbooks also enable weekly assessment per child per subject.

We serve children lunch daily, meals range from rice, spaghetti, yams, sweet potatoes served with beef/eggs periodically. Many families and students depend on the school lunch, and it remains a strong motivation to coming to school and ensuring learning. Teachers are also served lunch daily!!

At the KNOSK School, we place a premium on quality of our teach force. Hence, teacher training and development cutting across curriculum development, use of technology, and learner improvements are conducted every term, at the beginning and during the term.

Due to the fact that more girls are at risk of dropping out of school and remaining in poverty, 60% admission of admission is given to the girl child. Girls get monthly sanitary pads so they don’t miss class during their menstral cycle.

We are innovating in teaching style by using storified workbooks, replacing note taking with interactions, using active learning and on the go assessment. Our financing model is also a pay as you go model for both families and sponsors. 

KNOSK School has government approval to operate and also has been Accredited and recognised by the National Examination Council and Education Resource Centre to conduct annual Basic Education Certificate Examinations, annually.
