During my stay in primary school, I was promoted twice on trial simply because I could not concentrate on my studies. You will be surprised that things like this affect young children. For me it is a childhood memory that I cannot forget.

The education system in Nigeria has so many challenges. At BTF, we have focused on one of the challenges, which is the provision of school uniforms to improve the children’s self-esteem, emotional wellbeing and to aid learning. We believe that in the nearest future the steps that we have taken will bring the change that we all seek. <br class="clear"/> <br class="clear"/> Leave A Comment Below Related Tags:nigeria share on: FacebookTwitter Google +Pinterest Tumblr Linked InEmailSend to Email Address:Your NameYour Email AddressEmail check failed, please try againCancel previous article101 students graduate at Regular Course of Foreign Service Academy | The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World Newsnext articleImmortalise Kudirat Abiola, activists tell FG – The Nation NewspaperRelated Posts431 shares Nigeria/June 27, 2019 /No Comment Mahmood Yakubu Says INEC Is Most Improved Public Institution in Nigeria448 shares Nigeria/June 27, 2019 /No Comment Procurement of 1000 AK-47 rifles was approved by Jonathan -Amosun reactsSee The Luxury SUV Innoson Will Give Winner Of Big Brother Naija Season 4 [PHOTOS]Aisha Buhari, NPA boss call for gender equality in maritime sector – Premium Times NigeriaBREAKING: Tribunal Dismisses INEC’s, Buhari’s Applications For Dismissal Of PDM’s PetitionTrump deportation threat sows panic among Florida migrants | The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World NewsSex-for-marks lecturers in trouble – VC warns – Daily Post Nigeria‘Shunning is not the answer’: Salah says Warda can change | The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World NewsBreaking: Court adjourns Kano kingmakers suit against GandujeBoko Haram kills 29 farmers in fresh Borno attack – Premium Times Nigeria Leave a Response Cancel reply CommentName Email Sign me up for the newsletter!
