Real transformations can only be achieved and sustained in settings where people are educated. In TAI we believe education is complete only when it provides solutions to the problems that confront our world today.
TAI sets up schools projects that are owned and managed by the local communities. Through these projects we address challenges to proper and conducive learning in adopted schools. We also advocate for the rights of those we work with to basic education.
We have recently commenced the TAI education scholarships which offers scholarships to students from low socioeconomic backgrounds that would otherwise be unable to support their examination fees. This initiative was launched in 2015 at the Otukpo youth development summit.
Targeting primary, secondary and tertiary institutions of learning, TAI forms social groups and clubs through which behavioural change and social reforms are promoted. Through this project we promote learning and encourage integration. We currently have two schools projects: Sabatoru primary school project in the Niger Delta area of Nigeria and Government secondary school Otukpo project in Benue State Nigeria. We aslo help to put these schools on the rader as most of our schools are located in remote areas and/or within ethnic minority communities.
