Easy School Services
Explain your idea in details:
There has been an alarming increase in the rate of out of school children and increase in school fees in Nigeria schools, so Easy School Services is seeking to proffer a lasting solution to the menace of children dropping out out of schools or not going to school at all. Easy school Services will provide low interest educational loans to parents and Guardians to enable them pay the school fees of their wards. We will do this by paying the school fees of our clients directly to the schools while they repay us back installmentally over a long period of time.By this their children will attend standard schools with little or no stress from the parents because they will choose the payment terms best suitable for them. As a low income earner we believe it will be over tasking to use up ones full two or three months salary to Carter for just the school fees of the child or children whereas there could be other pressing needs that needed urgent financial attention such as health bills, house rent and other household needs. Now with our initiative parents could use the money supposedly meant for school fees to engage in small business activities and from their profit they can be repaying back the loan. Our idea will impact parents,Students and School owners because parents will no longer go out of their means to see their children through school and school owners will no longer be owed school fees then children on the other hand will no longer be sent out of class because of non payment of school fees. We will also give out scholarships to best performing clients to increase competition in academic performance. We will give advantage to girl children to increase girl child school enrollment and literacy level.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Education is one of the sustainable development goals and in Nigeria especially the Northern part has the highest rate of out of school children, our targets are low income earners and poor parents who also constitute high percentage of the population, even well paid parents can also patronize our idea due to some unforseen circumstances like, non payment of salaries etc. we are impacting the patents, the students and school owners. In the Northern Nigeria and some other countries the girl child is suffering due to lack of education and with this our initiative girls will be given preferential treatment to enable them have access to quality education. The rate of school enrollment will be one of the measures to evaluate our success because we know that when our idea is rolled out, parents which we know are ready to see their children go to school will definitely embrace the initiative. So our impact will be to provide easy access to Education which will increase literacy level drastically. The offering of Scholarships to best performing Students is one of our social responsibility and it will go a long way in improving the lives of our awardees.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
We will take off by September which will be the start of a new academic year with primary and secondary schools in our location in collaboration with Headmasters and proprietors and probably expand to tertiary institutions. We have the aim of sustaining this initiative by sourcing for low or no interest loans and grants from Financial institutions and multilateral organizations to be able to sustain it and also through the interest we make definitely it will be sustained. Our model is making interest per client because since we're offering loans we are getting interest from the monies we are investing.
