Who we are..

Young Educators Foundation (YEF) is an international NGO whose vision is to improve the lives of our youth through literacy, as well as champion the cause of education. We strongly believe that education cannot be limited to only what is taught in the classroom; co-curricular activities must be included in the curriculum.

YEF believes in children’s right to quality education, and that education is not limited to only what is taught in the classroom. For nearly eight years, we have been at the forefront of helping to stem the tide of falling standards of the English language through literacy, as well as making a case for education being a priority..

Current we are in 3 African countries namely: Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana, and counting.
