Our Mission

Our mission is to assist children in rural Nigeria with the resources to attend school and to help build, equip and maintain elementary and secondary schools in rural Nigeria.


Educate the Children (EtC) is a non profit, charitable organization founded in 2004 by a local teacher in London, ON, Canada. The Board of EtC consists of a group of Canadian professionals who believe that Education is a fundamental right of all children and a responsibility that must be shared by all.

Our Core Values include:

• Knowledge and education

• Innovation and creativity

• Honesty and transparency

• Fairness and equality

• Passion for our work

• Justice

• An overall commitment to leaving the world a better place than we found it.

We are strongly committed and dedicated to raising the funds needed to complete our projects. All of our members are volunteers, this helps us to keep our administrative cost to 1%. This means that 99% of every donation goes towards completing our projects in rural Nigeria.
