Roots Activity Learning Center is beyond mere walls- schools without a consideration for the needs of African children, especially in this 21st century of innovation via creativity. Keenly followed, the school is considered here by clients as a top-notch learning centre that prides itself in making children construct learning themselves in the light of their experiences. We strongly believe that in the coming period, a model of Roots will be done in Nigeria, however. Franklin Ogaga CEO, Collegiate Pathway International Educational Consult, Nigeria.
