    The SAYGER Foundation  “Better Education” initiative in Iseyin, Oyo State continues to focus on providing free lunch to a group of Primary School students. The Foundation looks to increase student participation in the coming years by intensifying its Reading Mentoring and Development (READ) Initiative. This matches students with faculty mentors and they engage in grade-appropriate reading and writing exercises. This intiative complements other well-meaning efforts like book donations from overseas and the Ebedi Writers' Residency Program of Dr. Wale Okediran. The literary skills acquired from the READ intiative enhances future academic success, better preparing students to read and comprehend information in more sophisticated books.

Equipping students in a rural African community (Iseyin, Nigeria) with the knowledgebase, life skills and attitudes which help them succeed and excel in their academic experiences, thereby becoming effectively prepared to meet immediate social needs of their community and future global challenges.
