Kim and his friends study at the Igmin Kibe Education Center

In developing nations, education is critical to success. Education is especially vital for orphans who often fall behind academically due to the absence of familial support. Each day, at our education center in Jos, Nigeria, staff tutor children, like Kim, offering them tools to learn English so they can ultimately succeed academically. This knowledge will give him a clear advantage in Nigeria, as those who are fluent in English have more opportunities for schooling, expanding their job options in the future. Kim is now excelling at a private school. He and his classmates are learning English, writing skills, math and even creative arts.  Through the care of Back2Back, Kim is thriving and well on his way to reaching his goals for a brighter tomorrow.
