|Abia: Corps Members Implement An Impactful Rural2rural Education Initiative by DonDraper: 2:32pm On Aug 29, 2016|
Remember the story of a corps member that changed lives in Abia https://www.nairaland.com/2985776/how-corper-changing-lives-abia; so here's another bigger event from her. A second edition called "Rural 2 Rural Education Programme" was held in the same community and this time took a different turn. Free Summer School was organised for children in the entire community for a period of six weeks. Free textbooks, notebooks and stationaries were provided for the kids in attendance. A new curriculum was drafted from the scratch to close the identified gaps in the students’ academic state. Some of them, though in advanced class, still lack the basic foundational knowledge in core secondary school subjects.
This is a plight suffered by students who attend rural primary schools where the educational system is poor. After the classes, we conducted an assessment and observed remarkable improvement in their performance. For that reason an award ceremony was held on 24th August, 2016 with so much joy as various gift items were awarded to the students ranging from scholarships, notebooks, school bags and stationaries. We are very grateful to sponsors that supported us to impact lives and this has given birth to the initiative. Let's all work together to ensure that rural education is improved.

I would say today is one of my best days and all thanks goes to God. Initially I didn't want to talk about my service year but I've decided to share this. Little did I know things would turn out this way when I came to the community. Love and giving walk side by side. I loved them and gave all I had. In return see what I succeeded in making them do; they learnt the act of giving/appreciation/self development . No matter how small always remember to reach out. To my family, friends and sponsor I say a big thank you for making this happen. I have decided to continue with Rural 2 Rural Education Programme. JOIN ME!

Dear @Seun and @Lalasticlala, Thanks for all the usual support, kindly accord this Rural2Rural Education Initiative the necessary attention it deserves by moving it to FP. Many thanks in anticipation. More pictures coming up.
