Rise Up Leaders Advocate for Safe Schools, E-Learning Policy in Nigeria
- The Sun
“Family Health Advocates In Nigeria (FHANI) have advocated for the policy on e-learning as a means of implementing the Safe School Declaration (SSD).
The Safe Schools Declaration is an international commitment that expresses support for the protection of students, teachers, and their schools during armed conflict, stressing the importance of continued education during emergencies.
Speaking at a two-day capacity-building training for social media influencers and journalists, organized by FHANI in conjunction with Rise Up and Public Health Institute, a Rise Up Fellow, Benjamin Yunana Maigari said, the e-learning policy became necessary in the state in order not to leave school-age children in areas that are experiencing security threat.
He said his organization and other interests are advocating for e-learning based on the commitment of the State Government to make education available to all the school-age children in the state and punish any parent who refuses to send their wards to school free of charge, especially the basics.”
