How Nigerian students can win a grant with Solve Education!

At Solve Education, our major goal is to make education and employment accessible to children and youth who do not have access to schools. To achieve this, we leverage technology to create various programs and products. One of which is the ED Social Grant

This program takes the form of social voting on Telegram using Solve Education AI chatbot platform- Ed the learning bot. Through the Social Grant, Solve Education! pays undergraduates to build the soft skills they need to lead a meaningful life.

In 2021, over NGN4,000,000 has been invested in youths through the Social Grant. Lack of soft skills among young Nigerian graduates is largely responsible for their unemployability. 

According to a survey conducted in Nigeria, 65% of employers said self-confidence and interpersonal skills are often lacking in graduate recruits. 

So many soft skills are being developed, including but not limited to Communication & Interpersonal Skills, Grit and Determination, Sales & Marketing Skills, Leadership & Social Influence, time management etc.

From our experience connecting our talent community to jobs outside Nigeria, we can understand that- Hard skills get you the job. Soft skills make you keep the job.

Thousands of youths all over the country have participated in our programs and are better for it. 

Solve Education! has helped me polish my networking and communication skills.  It has also helped in boosting my confidence level and provided an avenue for meeting people of like minds” – Ikenna, a ED Social Grant Participant.

As Ikenna mentioned, participants in ED Social Grant get to partake in our community of highly driven youths over the country.

Platform to address learning crisis, youth unemployment unveiled

Solve Education! has launched Africa’s biggest learning competition in the sub-Saharan region to address learning crisis through its versatile education platform – Ed the learning bot.

Solve Education! is a non-profit organization committed to helping children and youth around the globe who are deprived of traditional education or prefer more efficient means than typical classroom education. The organization which is headquartered in Singapore, has branches in Indonesia, the United States, India, and Nigeria.

The program’s key objective is aimed at addressing the learning crisis and youth unemployment crisis in the region by bridging the skill mismatch between traditional classroom education, and industry expectations through ‘gamification.’

To address this apparent disconnect between school and university curriculum, and the expected skills in the workplace, Solve education! collaborated with top academic professors and industry leaders to co-create ‘Ed the learning bot’ and Africa’s biggest learning competition.

This program gamifies vital soft skills that are not taught in the classrooms.

Solve Education! has built Ed the learning bot, to create an open platform that integrates evidence-based curriculum and employment opportunities in the educational game.

Since we made our game free for all, we, however, groom our Solvies to the level where they own high demand technical skills, then we pair them to partner companies. That way, we can accommodate more learners and curate the world’s biggest learning competition.”

Also, Solve Education! selected campus ambassadors from 6 countries across 43 Universities in sub-Saharan Africa to partner with them in promoting, Ed the learning bot, among students.
