    • EduMarshals came about when Gordon Brown the former Prime Minister of UK reiterated that Nigeria holds the world record number of Out of School Children. And exactly at the same time 2013, it was recorded by UNICEF that there were 10.5 million children out of school and presently by calculation from National Population Commission via Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (2016/2017), it is 14.84 Million

    • Nonchalant and un-informed attitudes of Parents, guardians and teachers

    • Based on this; research was conducted by EduMarshals team which exposed other laxities in the education sector & the EduMarshals program was fully developed with arms of solution tackling key weaknesses identified. EduMarshals is an effective way to resolve School truanting and bunking. This is a program that will have everyone involved in the positive lasting change the nation wants.

    HOW IT ALL STARTED

    The program was brought to life by the then Governor of Delta State, Dr E.E Uduaghan who took a gamble, had it piloted for six months from September 2013 before it was expanded to every part of the State till December 2015 when the new administration could not pay the team anymore.

    THE 5 ARMS SOLUTION

    BENEFITS OF EDUMARSHALS

    • Literacy and Numeracy improved/Out of School Children reduced

    • Job creation

    • Poverty Alleviation

    • Economic growth (It’s called the money-multiplier. When you have ONE HUNDRED NAIRA, you buy BREAD. Now the BREAD man buys a newspaper for the same NAIRA. The newspaperman buys WATER. The water man buys meat. ONE HUNDRED NAIRA is used on average ten times, equals about N100 in economic growth)
