Ogun Corpers Carried Out Sensitization And Mega Projects by daseento(m): 6:46am On Oct 26, 2017
Community development service (CDS) is one of the four essential component of National Youth Service Year. It is therefore mandatory for every corps members to participate actively in it.

It was a ground breaking event as Anti-HIV and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) CDS Groups of Odeda Local Government, Ogun State took their final sensitization and mega projects to the pupils of Nawair-Ud-Deen Grammar School, Obantoko, Abeokuta.

The sensitization exercise began with a talk tagged " The relevance of Education to Self Actualisation and National Development" delivered by Mr Ismaeel of SDGs CDS unit. He encouraged the pupils to embrace education and shun social vices, he accentuated the need to succeed regardless of challenges they might encounter on their way to success. Ismael, a first class graduate of linguistics and literacy studies used himself as a case study, informing the students about several obstacles he encountered but he didn't allow them to deter him from achieving his goals.

The second lecture dwelt on " HIV, Symptoms and Prevention" and was jointly delivered by Pharm. Onwuka Chinedu Kester and Scientist Okpeye Chidi Peter. Mr. Chinedu started by stating the discouraging statistics of people living with HIV in Nigeria, especially amongst teens between the ages of 15 - 24 years and the need for HIV education especially in schools.
Chidi took his time to explain the meaning of HIV and AIDS, the body defensive system and how it could be susceptible to various infections when attacked by the virus. The session also included STI games/activities which helped the students understand how easily HIV can be transmitted.

The session ended by emphasising the ABCD of HIV prevention and establishing the fact that abstinence is the best and safest means of preventing HIV.

The CDs group then proceeded to distribute incentives such as books, pens, stationery items to the students who answered related questions correctly.

The capstone of the event was the erection of a billboard with HIV prevention messages in the school premises by the ANTI-HIV CDS Group, knowing fully well that the messages will serve as reminders even while we might have been long gone.

There is an intrinsic joy attached to contributing positively to your immediate community. It is an awesome feeling to be part of the solution, and not the problem. I therefore want to appreciate NYSC for this glorious opportunity to serve and as well implore prospective corps members to give their best during their service year. I conclude with the words of John F. Kennedy " Never ask what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country".

These children still doing this NYSC are just wasting their time. Most of them can't think beyond that 19800.
