The State of Youth-Led Innovation in Education” Report for 2020 will identify, showcase, harmonize, and celebrate various inspiring and transformative youth-led educational responses to COVID19 in Nigeria. With an overarching goal of documenting and projecting the inspirational leadership and ingenuity of young people as crucial front liners and pacesetters in educational development, this annual report will chronicle diverse perspectives and dynamics of youth-led innovation and entrepreneurial leadership within the local educational sector as it applies to efforts geared at improving policy, practice, and research.

Summary and Background

As a driving force in shaping a sustainable and inclusive future, tapping into the creativity of young people is essential to deliver ground-breaking solutions to boost sustainable development, particularly in ensuring equitable access to quality education. It is unarguable that complex development challenges like the COVID19 pandemic require an effort to go beyond traditional approaches and in these times, young people have proven to be energetic, passionate, and ambitious individuals with the zeal and understanding to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.

More than 40 million learners in Nigeria were affected by the nationwide school closures, of which over 91 percent are primary and secondary school learners. Nonetheless, it is inspiring to see how young people are organizing within communities, mobilizing resources and designing innovative strategies to ensure alternative educational and distance learning opportunities are accessible to students and children.


This report, therefore, will highlight 50 most outstanding youth-led non-profits, social enterprises, and projects that have inspired transformational leadership and radical innovation in ensuring learning never stops despite school closures within the COVID10 pandemic era.


In order to qualify, projects must:

  • Address the varying access challenges which are prevalent in the COVID19 context.
  • Be innovative, game-changing ideas that have the potential to build transformative change in education.
  • Demonstrate potential to be scale up during and beyond the recovery phase of education post-COVID.
  • Be cost-effective in solving the challenge(s) it seeks to address.
