|My Teaching Story by Greenarrow01(m): 6:04pm On Oct 05, 2019|
3 plus years ago, we started this journey. Looking back now, it looks just like yesterday
The genesis of the school across actually didnt start 3 years ago. As a high student, my dad mandated me to teach my siblings during holidays. I graduated from there to teaching kids in my local church.
I grew up in a street with hundreds of kids. I alongside my siblings where the only ones in school. Other kids on the street, we either in almajiri setup or always hawking.
Dutsen wai is a rural community, no power supply, no bank and even police.
Our home almost got burnt in 2011. We were lucky, others were not that lucky
But as a 15year old boy, I knew where the core need was. I can still picture how most evenings, lying on a mat in front of our house, enjoying the card evening breeze, I did be discussing how to set up a school with my Dad. Boy! I was 15.
When I left the university system in 2016, I knew what I wanted. I knew my purpose and where I was going.
I picked up kids in my street and I started a free school. We started under a tree. I was 22, broke but determined. I didnt even have a phone, couldnt build a social media presence, whenever I want to post something online, I had to travel to the city (Zaria).
The kids,.. I lured them with biscuits and sweets lol.
A year later, we moved to an a shed.. Our number increased to about 30, I needed funds, I tried everything, I couldn't raise a dime.
I was hopeless, maybe the teaching profession was not meant for me. I lost hope and was
About to disband the school.
Then Ukrike Suwwan came out of no where.
And boom!! The growth started. Within a short period we moved to an uncompleted building and. Our population increased.
Our population soared within a short period to about 450. Patents kept bringing more kids.. And we kept rejfting them, due to space constraints.
We have within a short period changed Dutsen wai's educational space.
Falz and Nescafe also supported us with 1milliob naira
We had and we are still having challenges, for example, we learn in an uncompleted building, but the zeal is there. I alongside 13 other teachers are out here to build a better community.
God willing, we won't stop until we have a better school and a better community.
As for me, this is just my first school, I will still move to another community, then another, ans another. I won't stop. There are 11million kids in Nigeria who are not in sch.. The deserve education.
We need help pls.
Our school needs support, we started the building project last year but we still haven't done much..
Any amount will push us forward.
450 kids depend on you and me
