ABUAD’s anti-poverty programmes

ABUAD has put in place an Access and Participation (50 by 30) Plan with the major objective of delivering minimum 50 percent admission and completion for students from low household incomes in the bottom 20% of household income earning group that are below N200,000 a year by the year 2030. This is in a bid to ensure better educational access and participation.

ACCESS AND PARTICIPATION PLAN EVALUATION (INPUT AND OUTPUT)

By putting in place various evaluation metrics. ABUAD’s access monitoring framework with respect to relevant inputs indicate that about 25% of ABUAD’s intake cohort in 2019 are from low household incomes (below N200,000 a year). This increased to 28.4% in 2020. In same manner, following the trend, the figure has increased to 32% in 2021 and we expect this to further increase in 2022.
 In order to support the achievement of the access and participation Plan, ABUAD provides discounted tuition in a number of its programs, especially part-time studies programs and open & distance learning programs aimed at delivering education to students from poor and vulnerable backgrounds that fall into the bottom 20% of household income group.

Having gone through the Access and Participation Plan process ABUAD’s evaluation metrics in the access and participation monitoring framework with respect to relevant outputs indicate that 29.9% of our graduating students in 2019 were from low household incomes (below N200,000 a year). This proportion increased to 32.2% in 2020 and has remained stable in 2021.
