The "Better Education" Project
Enhancing student interests in learning through nutrition program and teacher capacity building initiative.
Primary education sets students on a path to lifelong learning,
equipping them to succeed in contributing to the progress of a
rapidly changing world. In the context of the Nigerian education
system, there has been tenuous visible progress from academic
training such as in academic quality of students, infrastructures,
particularly roads for transportation or power for multiple purposes,
or improved quality of life to rural populations like the Òkè Ògùn
region. There remain lingering issues on the quality, relevance and
efficiency of the overall education being provided. Engaging parents,
teachers, students and the communities in achieving and sustaining
effective reforms of the education system is a daunting challenge. Hence, there is the need for
strategic collaborative relationships among all stakeholders in the community; parents, politicians,
policymakers, businesses, educators and students, working to sustain a revitalized system.
The SAYGER “BE” Project is predicated on the belief that the future of our children, indeed, our future, for a good life and fulfilling the promises of a better society
begins with healthy life in and around the primary school classroom. The project is designed with emphasis on: 1. Primary school nutrition using a community collaboration program that provides free lunch to students, to promote their physical and psychological health; 2. Recruitment and retention of highly effective
teachers in primary schools through improving welfare and supporting staff training; and 3. Actively seek and support other community projects that help revitalize
the overall learning environment for primary school students, as well as, increase their capacity to continuously evolve to meet changing circumstances and
address the needs for quality primary education in the region. As a public charitable organization the SAYGER Foundation depends on its family foundation funds
and the support from generous contributions and donations from friends, well-wishers and grants worldwide for its mission.

Ká rìn ká pọ íyẹ ní yẹ ni------so goes a Yoruba adage
Community support is crucial to the successful implementation of any social program. Community ownership of social programs guarantees its sustained and
effective activities. Parents, the business community, administrators, educators and students will play important roles as a strong coalition, whose concerted
mission would be to revitalize the academic atmosphere, where teachers are able to effectively teach, students are able to receive formal and informal education
relevant to the needs of both their immediate society, the nation as a whole and the world in general. There is the need for everyone to regain a sense of dignity, one
in which teachers are given the respect they so much deserve in the form of compensation that meets increasing cost of living and allows them maintain a decent
life style; parents need to motivate students and teachers through their support and volunteer activities and students need to have a stronger sense of responsibility
in attaining academic excellence.
