To provide sustainable programs that generate positive change for Nigerian children and their communities.
The vision of A2S is that each child/person in Nigeria finds a dignified path to a successful life and is empowered to live out God’s plan for a future filled with hope.
Essential to communities being lifted out of poverty are holistic programs that address the physical, spiritual and psychological needs of currently struggling communities. A2S envisions communities in which individuals can be productive members of society, living with mutual respect and love for one another.
The vision of the After School Academy is to transform and empower the lives of Nigerian children through academics and athletics, increasing the percentage of students who achieve higher levels of education and thereby reducing poverty in Nigeria.
We believe education, leadership and teamwork skills, faith, and community and family support are critical to helping young people achieve their goals. A2S envisions a future where socioeconomic status does not prevent a child from attending school. We aim to create long-term, sustainable growth by working in communities with local support.

Statement of Ministry
Access to Success (A2S) is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to playing its part in eliminating poverty and providing hope through education and opportunity. Our ministry was founded on the premise that everyone should have an opportunity to dream, irrespective of location.
A2S believes that Christ welcomes all. Our policy supports providing hope and promoting change irrespective of race or religion. We embrace supporters and volunteers from all backgrounds.
At A2S, our motivation stems from Jeremiah 29:11 that says “For I know the plans I have for you, ‘declares the Lord’ plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Our ministry and approach hinge on a few major theological concepts. A2S follows the teachings of Jesus Christ, who exemplified unconditional love, and said to be not only “hearers but doers.” We operate a hands-on approach of expressing love through action, providing year-round programs to help provide hope and a future to those in need.
