Arm the Child Foundation (ATCF) is a social welfare and development organization founded with the intention of delivering quality education to internally displaced children and other vulnerable children, at no cost. ATCF started off as a project in July 2017, with the theme Arm the Child Project: A Summer School for IDPs and Vulnerable Children. The project was birthed out of the desire to measure the educational level of the internally displaced, if any, and build on it. Challenges that stemmed from the first edition of the summer school project birthed 2 other projects which are the literacy clinic and camp2class scholarship program. Each of these projects is designed to complement the Summer School project.
Thus ATCF has 3 main projects through which it achieves its objectives in addition to other advocacy programs and events marked in honor of specific International and United Nations’ Dates.
To deliver free and quality education to vulnerable and internally displaced children among their peers.
To promote skill acquisition among vulnerable and internally displaced children among their peers.
To reduce the physical and psychological challenges of vulnerable and internally displaced children.
To reduce the number of out of school children in Nigeria and Africa.
To empower mothers of vulnerable and internally displaced children.
To bridge the academic gap that exists between the children and their counterparts who have access to education
