2022 - 2023


Nigeria has made great strides to improve access to education and learning opportunities for children. The country has built school infrastructure, prioritized on-time enrolment and increased the use of data for education planning. The results have been tangible. Primary school attendance has risen from 61 per cent in 2016 to 68 per cent in 2021. Gender parity in secondary school attendance has increased from 0.68 in 2016 to 1.03 in 2021 for the poorest children.

This progress is underpinned by more than a decade of close partnership among the government, UNICEF, communities and donors. Through our tireless collaboration, we have identified solutions that work to get children into school and improve their learning outcomes.

On this page, you will find How-to Guides, Cheat Sheets and Investment cases on different education initiatives carried out by UNICEF.
