Grassroots’ support is crucial to meeting to overcoming the security and other challenges associated with school enrolment and retention in Nigeria. Involving local communities in initiatives to safeguard education is crucial in protecting the children.

Advocacy is an essential strategy in getting out-of-school children back to school and keeping vulnerable girls in school. Oando Foundation facilitates engagements with relevant stakeholders at various tiers of government to promote policies and solicit counterpart contributions for improved programme outcome. The Foundation works in partnership with the community and government agencies charged with delivery of basic education including as the State Universal Basic Education Boards, the State Ministries of Education, the Local Government Education Authorities and the school management to ensure effective programme implementation, monitoring, and replication (where required) across other non-adopted schools in the state. Involving the community in projects the Foundation undertakes helps establish a sense of ownership and community participation, which in turn enhances sustainability of the project.
