Strategic Objective: To improve access to quality education and increase educational attainment in North-East Nigeria.
The objective of the education intervention in North-East Nigeria is to improve access to quality education and increase educational attainment. The problem analysis reveals that lack of access, low educational attainment, and poor quality of education are major challenges, particularly for girls and vulnerable populations. To address these challenges, GSF will undertake several planned interventions. School infrastructure development will be carried out to improve the learning environment and increase access to education. Teacher training and support will be provided to improve the quality of education and address teacher shortages. Curriculum development will be undertaken to make education relevant and inclusive. Girls’ education will be a focus, with targeted support including scholarships, mentorship programs, and advocacy for their rights. Vocational and life skills training will be provided to support the transition from education to employment. The organization will monitor and evaluate the progress and impact of its interventions to ensure effectiveness. Collaboration with relevant government agencies, local communities, and other development actors will be key to the success of the strategy, with the ultimate goal of increasing educational attainment and improving the future prospects of children and youth in North-East Nigeria.
Within the center of the cardinal objectives that precipitated the founding of Grow strong foundation as an organization is the absolute resolute to promote peace and counter the decade long protracted conflict in the northeast and strive for a protected society with enhanced socio-economic wellbeing through multi sectoral humanitarian and development interventions.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals recognizes sports and cultural activities as a vital enabler of sustainable development and recognizes the growing contribution of sports for development and peace, through our implementations and programming’s we organized compelling sport and cultural activities as a tool to promote peace, tolerance, and understanding thereby bringing people together across boundaries, cultures, and religions.
This and allied programs promote values such as teamwork, fairness, discipline, and respect which are understood all over the world and can be utilized in the advancement of solidarity and social cohesion. It is in fact, a recreational space where a healthy lifestyle is promoted, through physical and mental development. It is a place where individuals converge to improve their social skills, strengthen cultural values and adapt to rules. Physical activities improve individual health and wellbeing, both physically and mentally, and teach important values and social skills. We believe sport and cultural event doesn’t just empower on individual basis; it also unites and inspires people collectively, which builds communities.
