FHANI Advocates For Policy Document For Sustainability.



The Advocacy Project for the formulation and adoption of E-learning policy and implementation framework in secondary schools in Kaduna State, Northwest Nigeria, has continued to attract tremendous positive response from policy makers.

The Advocacy Project being implemented by an advocacy working group, Family Health Advocates in Nigeria Initiative, FHANI is aimed at ensuring continuity in learning by students during crisis, especially insecurity.

Though Kaduna was first to start it during COVID-19 lockdown to enable students cover their syllabus, FHANI saw the need to have a Policy Document in place for continuity and sustainability.
