The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced its support for the education of internally displaced persons (IDPs) with a grant of $801, 000 on Tuesday.

The US charge-d’affaires, Maria Brewer, at the grant signing event said, the grant is to improve access to education of Internally Displaced Populations, saying the funds will provide education services for children and youth living in IDP camps and in host communities.

She also said that “where education is lacking, people are less likely to attain economic opportunity, which leads to greater poverty and in too many ways, opens doors to extremism and violence.”

“Education positively affects people’s economic development and general health, while also advancing civil rights,” she said.

In collaboration with the Nigerian government at the federal, state and local levels, USAID is also supporting several humanitarian, transitional and longer-term development activities in north-eastern Nigeria, totalling about $87.1million.
