THE MAKOKO SLUM SCHOOL PROJECT
The slums of Makoko in Yaba, Lagos Nigeria, is a place where most people live below
$1 a day, which is way below the poverty line.
Educa,on especially towards women/ girls take the back seat. Poverty, underdevelopment, mass
literacy, ignorance, urban backwardness, conserva,sm and language barrier causes a majority of
children in the slum especially girls to be deprived of their basic rights to education.
