The Role of Worldreader in achieving SDG 4 – Inclusive, Equitable and Quality Education: The East African Perspective

It also requires supporting teachers, educators, and families as they facilitate learning.

The Role of Libraries in realising SDG 4 – Inclusive, Equitable and Quality Education: The West African Perspective

By Nkem Osuigwe Libraries exist within the formal and informal sectors of the learning ecosystem. They are very important to learning in schools and in the different communities where they live all over Africa. They are critical for achieving an inclusive, equitable, and quality education where no one is left behind including those who are in employment and cannot attend school full-time and/or are taking online courses.

December is not a deadline – don’t kill yourself

By Ugoma Johnson The Christmas season which is a celebration that is peculiar to December is always interesting and fun-filled. The joy of the season is such that is felt by all, including none Christians. Most businesses seem to boom more during the Christmas season and most business people always look forward to it. It is also an interesting time for employees as most organisations give a long holiday for workers to rest and have family time with their loved ones. The excitement, expectation, and joy that accompany the Christmas season are such that can hardly be compared to any other season. However, for

Thank God! I survived

A survivor's story of a pilot's plane crash experience By Tolu Ita Who would have thought that a flight that started in a clear blue sky would end up in a crash? But thank God, I survived. It was my CPL (commercial pilot licence) qualifying solo cross-country flight on September 12, 2003. I had completed the flight from Zaria to Jos, Jos to Abuja, and was on the last leg from Abuja to Zaria. Despite VFR (visual flight rules) weather in Zaria and my alternate, Kaduna, I had delayed departure for Abuja weather to improve. Tolu Soyemi (now Ita) on her way to the
