Back-to-School Education Initiative
junio 10, 2017
Pupils of Gbagada East Primary School and the general society by extension.
he local organisation visualizes a world where quality education is inclusive and equitable, encouraging lifelong learning opportunities for all children in primary schools.
This is called a pet project because it is one that JCI Lagos Metropolitan adopts as a personal favourite. 10.5 million Nigerian children are out of school, 6 million out of 36 million girls out of school are Nigerian, and 20 million out of 22 million Nigerian children aged 0-3 years do not have access to Early Childhood Education. The local organisation visualizes a world where quality education is inclusive and equitable, promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all children in primary schools. According to Mahtab Narsimhan: “Good education is the greatest gift you can give yourself or anyone else". This project is the flagship of our 60th anniversary. The chapter has mugs on sale with the quote “Good education is the greatest gift you can give yourself or anyone else" inscribed with our 60th anniversary/JCI logo on it and has it available for sale at all our meetings and events all through the year for purchase at N 1,500 each for members, friends and visitors. Monies generated from this initiative will be used to get basic study materials (like school bags, stationery, notebooks) for pupils. In so doing, we would have taken a huge step toward actualizing the 4th global development goal set by the United Nations for 2030.
The chapter should do solicit more media coverage for awareness and also additional support from the ministry of education and the parent-teacher association in the selected school would see the project garner more fanfare in subsequent phases of the project. s
The project has garnered immense publicity toward JCI Nigeria as an organisation that cares for humanity and one that believes that good education is the core of human personality. The providence of good basic material for good education is in tandem with the national body's plan of action tagged "Turning Point", because availing tomorrows leaders equal learning opportunities is the pivot of positive change within community. The project has a lively grassroots fanbase already amongst the parents of pupils, pupils themselves, teachers and non academic staff of the school and the community and portrays JCI as an organisation that provides development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.
