- Paradigm Initiative has now commenced its LIFE@School program in Ajegunle. We inaugurated the first LIFE@School Club at El Leonora College. The expansion is in line with our plan to impact more youth. LIFE@School gives us the opportunity to scale our LIFE program and empower more young people with Life, ICT and financial readiness skills.
- The 2017C class is now in session across our three centres. 90 youth were selected to participate in the last class of 2017.
The DakataLIFE 2017B class continued in July. The students had training in web development. They also concluded teamwork on their business plans followed by a business plan presentation during which the team pitched their business ideas. Business ideas pitched included packaged spices, bespoke bags and poultry farming. On August 4th, the 2017B class had their graduation ceremony. 30 students met the criteria and were presented with Letters of Completion. It was a fun ceremony with drama presentations by the students and a surprise Skype call with the Program Manager.
The LIFE Workshop took place on the 15th of July, 2017; the workshop was facilitated by Femi Taiwo, (Director of Programs, LEAP Africa) and he was assisted by Esther. The topic discussed was “Write to The Top”, which was to improve the communication skills of both students and alumni who were present at the work shop.
AjegunleLIFE Team received fellows from Teach for Nigeria, whose visit was to see how activities at the Centre take place and to see the impact stories of the students attending the LIFE Program.
In this quarter we concluded the 2017B session of our training where 35 out the 35 accepted into the training successfully completed the training and received their completion letters on the 4th August 2017.
LIFE@School will commence with New World International Secondary School in October 2017.
We also hosted 35 girls in the SheWillConnect 2-day digital readiness workshop on the 7th and 8th September 2017
AbaLIFE will hold its annual Town hall meeting and Alumni forum coming on 10th and 11th November respectively.
