A non-governmental organisation, Youth Advocate for Change has concluded plans to stage a one-day interactive forum on Advancing Inclusive Education in Lagos Slum Communities. The target participants/beneficiaries for the capacity-building programme include school owners, government officials, private sector players, civil society groups and young people living in four slums communities: Ilaje in Bariga Local Government; Iwaya-Makoko, Mainland Local Government Development Area; Ikate in Lekki and Agboyi-Ketu in Ketu Local Government Area, all in Lagos.
Convener and Team Leader of Youth Advocate for Change, Adeola Ogunlade, told newsmen in Lagos, on Wednesday, that the programme, schedule for March 7 at Eden Centre, Iwaya, Yaba, Lagos at 12noon, was aimed at enhancing inter-sectoral and multi-stakeholder partnership.
He added that the objective was to ensure that marginalised children in slum communities are not left behind in the effort toward achieving inclusive education for all children, irrespective of their location, gender and socio-economic challenges.
