SEL advances educational equity and excellence through authentic school-family-community partnerships to establish learning environments and experiences that feature trusting and collaborative relationships, rigorous and meaningful curriculum and instruction, and ongoing evaluation.
How Does SEL Help?
SEL can help address various forms of inequity and empower young people and adults to co-create thriving schools and contribute to safe, healthy and just communities.
Nigerian Emotional, Employability, Leadership Learning Project (NELPRO) is a trusted source for knowledge about exceptional, evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL). NELPRO supports Nigerian educators, parents and policy leaders and enhances the experiences and outcomes for pupils and students.

NELPRO's mission is to
Help Nigeria succeed by making evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL), and its practices in all schools and communities in Nigeria an integral part of education from preschool through high school.
Our work is critical at a time when Nigeria needs educators, parents, students, and employers who increasingly recognize the value of SEL. Together, we are united in our call for schools to educate the whole child, equipping students for success in school and in life.
Borne out of the need to give children support to develop, by modelling cooperation, empathy, and mutual respect in the classroom, we prepare them to be leaders and change-makers in their communities.
Protecting Children from Violence and Abuse
We’re devoted to keeping children safe from violence and abuse. Far too many children have experienced trauma that may cause them to act out, withdraw, or have difficulty paying attention—impeding their ability to learn and thrive.
Dedicated to promoting the safety, well-being, and success of children in school and in life. Empower kids and the adults around them with information and resources to help understand what bullying is, who is affected by it, and community can do to prevent it.
Promoting SEL Skills
We’re committed to developing and supporting the use of research-based social-emotional learning (SEL) curricula in and out of school. SEL creates a positive school climate that supports learning and academic success while narrowing the achievement gap.
Give help where it's needed most
NELPRO needs support to reach and build stable communities leveraging on SEL around Nigeria and Africa.The result? Academic achievement, graduation rates, and attendance are up. Suspensions and disciplinary incidents are down.
It’s tough work, but it’s the right work. If students have better social and emotional skills, then they will probably get better grades. They would realize that school is important. Help us make this a reality by volunteering today.
