Data Scientists Without Borders: Enhancing Educational Viability Among Secondary School Students In Rural Communities

April 20, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Project Description:

  • Some of the major problems facing the growth of academics and terrible academic performances among secondary school students in rural communities in Nigeria can be attributed to insufficient motivation, interest in their study, indiscipline, low retention, and association with wrong peers, bad teachers among students as well as the effect of unmotivated teachers/access to correct information, quality educational programs and counseling services.
  • The goal is to help increase school attendance. This will be done by analyzing data collected at 20 different schools in Nigeria and then using the data found to provide solutions.
  • A resource website will also be developed which will allow students to get materials that they can use to enhance their learning.

Organization Description:

The Hope For Young Generation Foundation has created a model that includes a monthly interactive club, which will be established in all schools where the programs will be carried out. Trainees will visit schools last week of every month to respond to feed back. The Project National Committee shall supervise the State Coordinators while the State Coordinators will supervise the Local Government trainees. The Project National Committee shall visit each State randomly for monitoring purposes. Contacts details of all participants at every sensitization shall be collated for follow up. The State Coordinators shall compile monthly reports and send it to the National Office.
