The season to be jolly will soon be upon us, and along with it the opportunity to share messages of friendship and goodwill with friends and family; as we've done for many years BNET is once again producing christmas cards for the occasion. These cards are an excellent way to support our work, and share it with your network. The painting on this year's card is by Isiaka Sunday, who has kindly given us permission to reproduce it. The cards are size (A6) and available at a price of £12 for 20 cards. They can be ordered via our secretariat at the address and contacts below.
THE BRITAIN-NIGERIA EDUCATIONAL TRUST is a membership charity that promotes friendship and understanding between Britain and Nigeria by providing financial support that directly contributes to the progress of education in Nigeria.
Teacher training is one of its key priorities, assisting deserving teachers to raise their skills through its Gary Clark Award scheme, in conjunction with the Nigeria Teacher Institute.
Current major educational projects include:
- providing E-readers to schools in both the North and the South together with installing solar panels for electricity
- the provision of bore holes and water pumps in schools, most recently in Kaduna State
- providing teacher aids, including Hausa wall charts for schools in the North
- providing desks and other school furniture for a school just recovering from the Boko Haram troubles near Biu in Borno State
- assisting with the replenishing of journals for Jos University Library after its destruction by fire
- building new school classroom blocks at Kings College Lagos and Edo College Benin, now looking at establishing scholarships
- setting up the Agbado E-learning Hub in Lagos, the continuing support to schools, colleges and universities by the provision of books, equipment and essential teaching facilities
As part of the Trust’s strategy to make a permanent and noticeable impact on education, a Fellowship Plan has been established, in conjunction with the Association of Commonwealth Universities, to fund the annual appointment of senior visiting academics to work with local colleagues in two Northern universities.
The Trust relies on financial support from individuals, institutions and companies who share its charitable purpose.
