OUR KEY FOCUS AREAS 1. Child Protection The Elite Star Foundation is working towards creating a safe and happy childhood for every Nigerian child, free from abuse and neglect. We aim to play a significant role in giving children all over Nigeria a voice while upholding the highest standard of child protection through advocacy, awareness, and responsive support service.

Child Survival Child survival is a critical issue that requires the attention of all stakeholders in the global community. For too long, children have been dying from preventable diseases and injuries, and the impact of this loss is felt by their families and entire communities and countries. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 calls for "ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all ages, "focusing on child survival. We recognize that child survival is not an isolated issue but is closely linked to other key development objectives like education, gender equality, and poverty reduction. We must work together to create an enabling environment that provides the necessary support and resources to ensure the survival and well-being of all children. At Elite Star Foundation, every child deserves a chance to live a long, healthy life. That is why we are committed to using a comprehensive approach to promoting the survival and well-being of children worldwide. Our Child Survival Approach combines prevention, early intervention, and response strategies to ensure that children have the best chance of surviving and thriving. Prevention: Prevention is the best way to ensure a child's survival. We work to improve the health and well-being of children by providing health education and preventive health services. Our prevention strategies also focus on reducing poverty, increasing access to quality education, and promoting good nutrition and hygiene. Early Intervention: Early intervention is key to ensuring a child's survival. We provide rapid response services to children at risk of malnutrition, disease, or other health problems. Our early intervention services include providing nutritional supplements and access to medical care. Response: We are there to respond when a child is in crisis. We provide emergency services to children who are victims of natural disasters, conflicts, or other health crises. We provide medical care, food, clean water, shelter, and other essential services to needy children. At Elite Star Foundation, we are committed to protecting and promoting the health and well-being of children around the world. We use a comprehensive approach to ensure that every child has the best chance at survival. 3.

We strive to provide a comprehensive approach to education tailored to each child's needs. Through our programs, we strive to create a safe and supportive learning environment that helps children reach their highest potential. Our approach to child education is based on a holistic view of the child as a whole person. We recognize the importance of providing various learning experiences for children, including academic, physical, social, and emotional learning. Education should not be limited to the classroom but should extend to the community and beyond. We strive to create learning opportunities that cultivate creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. At Elite Star Foundation, we understand that each child has unique abilities and interests. We strive to provide an individualized approach to education that considers each child's needs. We offer a variety of educational programs, such as tutoring, mentorships, and after-school activities, that help children develop the skills they need to succeed. We also recognize the importance of family involvement in a child's education. We strive to create a partnership between families, schools, and other community organizations to ensure that every child has the support they need to reach their educational goals. At Elite Star Foundation, we are committed to providing children with the educational opportunities they need to become successful, productive members of society. We believe that quality education is the key to a brighter future.
