By Alice Etuka, Abuja

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has announced that the Nigeria Learning Passport (NLP) has reached a remarkable milestone of one million subscribers.

The development was announced in a statement issued on Tuesday, June 18, 2024.

The Nigeria Learning Passport is a result of a collaborative effort between UNICEF, the Federal and State Ministries of Education, and key partners among others including Microsoft, Airtel, IHS Towers, Sony, Botnar Foundation, and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE).

It offers over 15,000 curriculum-aligned educational resources, including interactive lessons, digital textbooks, and self-paced learning modules, designed to cater to students from primary to secondary education levels, and for teachers and parents.

Speaking about the milestone, UNICEF Nigeria Country Representative, Ms. Cristian Munduate said, “Reaching one million subscribers on the Nigeria Learning Passport is a testament to our collective commitment to ensuring that every child in Nigeria has access to quality education, regardless of their location or circumstances.

“This platform is bridging the educational gap and providing opportunities for children to learn and thrive, especially in remote and underserved communities.”

The statement disclosed that NLP had been instrumental in addressing the educational disruptions caused by the covid-19 pandemic, and most recently by natural hazards and attacks on schools, ensuring that children continued to learn in a safe and supportive environment.

It further explained that the platform’s user-friendly interface had made it accessible to learners.

UNICEF also hinted that the soon to be launched offline capability will also make it accessible to learners with limited internet connectivity, further promoting inclusivity in education.
