Equal Education Chances concepts are based on these 5 Sustainable Development Goals which are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.
Quality Education/learning opportunity
EEC individual programme that enables a child or young person to strive at their own pace. with consideration to their wishes, desires and feelings.
EEC supports families to actualise EHCP goals of their children set out by the local authority, we put emphasis on
- Preparation for adulthood starting from the early years

EEC hopes to conquer low educational attainment in order to transform lives.
We ensure children with disabilities or labelled as special needs are given the opportunities to promote, sustain and enhance their skills and expertise (including formal education, vocational and long-life learning).
We believe that sporting activities are a huge part in human development and fitness, it fosters independence, coping abilities and working with other team members. as a result, we plan, advice and provide sporting equipment that is accessible and fun.
Becoming a sponsor will enable them to thrive as you will be making a great difference in their lives.
What is educational disadvantage?
Pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds aren’t less able, but they have less access to the tools that support them to progress in school. This means they are not able to reach their full academic potential.
EEC create awareness on how to provide a tolerant and inclusive learning environment through adapted equipment/tools, educational resources, training and workshops. This will enhance the development of individual capacities, competences and skills. EEC will have a direct impact on children/young people by delivering services and necessities in their educational establishment, homes, religious setting and vocational places.
EEC partners with special schools in Lagos Nigeria to deliver an inclusive and conducive learning environment.
