United For Education (U4E) is a non profit organisation, established with a vision to reduce educational inequity by improving the standard and quality of public primary education in Nigeria.
We offer a more simplified and effective platform to avail corporate organizations the opportunity to achieve their corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals.
Our Belief is to create a positive mindset at an early age, through regular and sustained classroom interaction with our volunteers, who in addition to teaching, act as positive role models and possible life mentors to these pupils. It is with hope that a better work force emerges in the future, as an outcome of the simple weekly commitment of our volunteers.

"I was initially uncomfortable with the idea of teaching primary school kids - I had always imagined how difficult that would be. However I decided to give it a try after the orientation program of the U4E foundation. And I must say I’m really glad I did. I enjoyed the experience from the very first day because of the warm reception I received from the head teacher and her enthusiasm to the program..."
"The volunteer experience has been an exciting and fulfilling experience. It brings back lots of good memories and gives one the opportunity to give back to the society. It is my one hour in a week that I always look forward to. This is because I can see the burning desire to learn amidst many challenging environmental issues and manpower shortages..."
