Fighting Illiteracy One Lecture At a Time

Izogho Samuel is a 10 year old boy currently in primary 6. Before Samuel enrolled into the Next Generation Kids University Pilot demonstration held in August, he suffered from low self esteem amongst his peers. He once made a grammatical error in his former school when attempted to answer a question raised by his teacher. His peers all laughed and teased him every morning in school.
