While education is not one of the main focus sectors of the NSIA, it is viewed as a sector that is critical to nation building.

NSIA’s Board approved an investment of US$5 million in Bridge International Academies (Nigeria), an education company that focuses on providing top quality education for children of low-income families.

Bridge has rolled out its programmes in two states, Lagos, and Edo State. In Lagos, the programme runs as EkoExcel while in Edo State, it runs as EdoBest.
