"Over a million internally displaced children, within schooling age in Nigeria, do not have access to quality education, severely limiting their opportunities in the future," she said. Obi added that Kidpreneur Africa, in partnership with Access Bank, will empower the Internally Displaced children and underserved children in these states with appropriate levels of literacy, communication, financial, digital and life skills as well as the ethical, moral, and civic values needed for laying a solid foundation for life-long learning.

"Therefore, we embrace collaborations that create opportunities to educate the African child," she said.

"Working collaboratively with our stakeholders, we will continue to impact lives positively now and in the future," she added.
