PLANE Launches Community Learning Hubs in Kano, Fostering Inclusive Education
Exciting news emerged from Kano state as the Partnership for Learning for All in Nigeria (PLANE), with the generous support of the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), inaugurated an inclusive education program in the Minjibir local government area. The Community Learning Hubs, a vital component of PLANE’s intervention in Kano, marks a significant step towards building a more inclusive and effective education system in Nigeria.
Emily Koester, the Technical Director at PLANE, highlighted the importance of the initiative. She stated, “PLANE focuses on improving basic education and tackling fundamental system constraints by raising the quality of teaching and learning for foundational skills. It also supports improvements in school management and teaching colleges, while unlocking governance bottlenecks to enhance frontline education delivery.” The seven-year PLANE program, funded by the UK FCDO, aims to enhance the education system, improve learning outcomes, and cater to the needs of students in their pre-primary and primary years.
The Community Learning Hubs will be implemented in 11 local governments of Kano state, with additional coverage planned for Karaye, Takai, and Gabasawa local government areas in the coming week. Vanessa Edheberu, the Head of Gender and Community Mobilization of the program, highlighted that 15 clusters in Minjibir will receive essential learning materials, ensuring that students have the necessary resources to thrive.
Alhaji Abdullahi Yanshana, the state Commissioner for Education, expressed gratitude to the FCDO for implementing the PLANE program in Kano. He conveyed his commitment to mobilizing relevant stakeholders to ensure the effective implementation of the program, underscoring the state government’s dedication to providing quality education for all.
Hajiya Suwaiba Sade of the Kano State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) acknowledged the significance of the PLANE program in addressing challenges facing the state’s education sector. With its comprehensive approach and focus on inclusive education, the program has the potential to make a substantial impact in improving educational opportunities for children in Kano.
Parents also expressed their appreciation to the Federal Government, FCDO, and the Kano State Government for their joint efforts in launching this transformative project. Their support and commitment to education are vital in ensuring the success and sustainability of the PLANE program.
As PLANE’s Community Learning Hubs begin to shape the educational landscape in Kano, we are filled with hope and excitement for the future. This inclusive and effective education initiative has the potential to unlock the potential of countless students, providing them with the tools and opportunities they need to succeed. The launch of the Community Learning Hubs in Kano sets a promising precedent for the ongoing efforts to strengthen Nigeria’s education system and create a brighter future for all.
