Where my own Charity? LOL. I will agree with your list alright. Just that these CD groups most time are only effective in capital cities and maybe a few cardinal towns.

The best CDS to join as a Corp member is the

"Hustler's CDs"

They teach you how to hustle your ass out during NYSC, so that you can have an easy landing after serving.

NYSC has this way of deceiving corp members that life is easy after serving.

Hustle hard during NYSC, and ball soft after service.

Happy sunday

I was just put in the charity CDS group...and the first advantage I saw is that I'll conveniently have people to give my clothes and shoes to.

I was happy to be in the Charity CDS. Co-incidentally, my immediate older bro was also in Charity CDS during his own time. He has a charitable foundation, today.

Yeah! Editorial CDS is just the best for writers and those having passion for writing and journalism.


We interact like a family and handles the NYSC publications in the state and as such, we get to know of any opportunity coming to the NYSC in the state, faster than any other CDS group and such, we do benefit from it most.


We enjoyed right from camp as OBS members, get preferential posting to state capital to join Editorial CDS. wink wink wink
