The Bauchi State Orphans and Vulnerable Children Agency, says it will enrol 10, 000 orphans and vulnerable children into primary schools across the state this academic session.
The Chairman of the agency, Alhaji Ibrahim Hali, said a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Bauchi that the aim was to support the children acquire education in spite of their disadvantaged background.
He said the agency would also ensure that vulnerable children who dropped out of school were brought back to continue with their education.
Hali said that the agency would provide the beneficiaries with learning materials such as textbooks, note books and uniforms among others.
The chairman added that the agency would partner relevant stakeholders to select specific primary schools across the 20 Local Government Areas of the state for the enrolment exercise.
