#BookDriveNigeria2019 & World Book Day
ChiYoWo celebrates #BookDriveNigeria2019 and World Book Day in Oreta Igbogbo, Ikorodu, Lagos State, Nigeria. Eagle International Nursery and Primary School received us with bags of smiles. 😁😁
Thanks to Nigerian Schools Foundation UK for partnering with ChiYoWo. We are extremely happy to donate reading books to the school all sourced from the United Kingdom.
We continue to focus on SDG4! Indeed, quality education fosters development and reduces illiteracy rates.
The children enjoyed our fun-loving educational activities and won books for their school. A ChiYoWo Reading Club has been set up which we will continue to monitor.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of our all our ChiYoWo volunteers. Much appreciated.
Let’s celebrate ChiYoWo’s little acts of kindness. Thank you.👏
Happy International Women’s Day
ChiYoWo celebrates International Women’s Day with women in a hard to reach community called Oreta Igbogbo, in Lagos State, Nigeria and they made their own products!
These women want to push boundaries and do something different in their community and for their families. Following a series of stakeholder engagement meetings and needs assessments, we captured their needs and all designed a project.
After a 3-hour training workshop with our Team, this is what they came up with -AreWà Multipurpose Soap and AreWà Air Freshener… a ChiYoWo community Initiative.
Now, they are empowered and excited and want to produce these products on a larger scale and sell them in their local markets! Check out their packaging🤗🤗
You see, the need to embrace #BalanceForPower can also come from the struggles within. Women can come together without jealousy or fear and achieve greatness. In this community, women tend to invest over 70% of their earnings back into their family lives for sustainable development. 🙂 Happy investing!!!
Thank you so much to our volunteers! Your great teamwork is awesome!!!
Thanks to our sponsor Godrej a consumer products company who donated hair extensions and bar soap to the ladies. Much appreciated.
Benin welcomes us #BookDriveNigeria2019! We are super proud of the impact Children Youth and Women Empowerment Initiative (ChiYoWo) continues to travel to hard to reach communities in Nigeria. Our team recently visited 2 schools in Benin – Guidance Academy and May & Steve Nursery and Primary School to donate educational and reading books. Certificates were given to the schools and outstanding students who excelled in educational competitions. Literacy and empowerment continue to inform our work.
Thank you for the continued support of our donors and partners. A shout out to NSFUK for being our key partner in the United Kingdom.
Well done Team ChiYoWo!!!
Much appreciated as always. 🙂
The Children, Youth and Women Empowerment Initiative (ChiYoWo) celebrated Children’s Day at Khan Foundation and had a wonderful time setting up a library and reading club.
As part of our #BookDriveNigeria2019 Programme, our ‘Read, Learn and Shape your World Project’ sought to encourage engaging reading culture habits in schools and amongst young children. The children took part in different activities including our Spelling Bee Competition and singing classes. They had so much fun!!! Winners got certificates as well. Congratulations to our first Library Prefect and Assistant who will be in charge of our ChiYoWo Reading Club.
Thanks to NSFUK for donating all the books to ChiYoWo in Nigeria. We are proud to be a catalyst for change in the literacy and education space in Nigeria. We will keep on striving to attain SDG4 – Quality Education in a country where over 15million children are still out of school and lack basic reading and writing materials that should at least start shaping their lives.
Thank you, Khan Foundation, for hosting us. Thank you to our donors, partners and our anonymous shipping company.
To our ChiYoWo volunteers Yetunde and Ibukun (and her Baby 😊) who delivered the activities we say well done👍🤗🙏🙏 and thank you.
The ChiYoWo Family
Let’s keep on doing our best…leaving a legacy is real!
ChiYoWo goes to Ogun State!!!
The pupils of Baptist Nursery and Primary School, Bode Ijaye, Abeokuta and their teachers were happy to receive our team from the ‘Read, Learn and Shape your World Project #BookDriveNigeria2019‘. It’s amazing how children respond to ‘hope, innovation and development’. They took part in a spelling bee competition, an SDG awareness programme and discussed current issues they contend within their communities on a daily basis. Winners got certificates and will manage the ChiYoWo Reading Club we set up. Thanks to Adedayo Adenrele our host teacher, and all the other teachers. We truly appreciate your effort. Enjoy reading and encourage the pupils to read the books we donated to your school library.
Again, thanks to NSFUK, our partner in the United Kingdom. Literacy is key for development and you keep on providing us with many keys!
The ChiYoWo Family
ChiYoWo visits El Shaddai School in Makoko, Lagos State and introduces its ‘Read, Learn & Shape your World Project’ as part of its #BookDriveNigeria2019 Initiative. Quality education – SDG4 remains a focal part of our work and against all odds. We will keep empowering children in marginalised communities with reading books and equipment. We are proud to have set up a Reading Club in this school. The winners of our activities will run the Reading Club.
Thanks to Nigerian Schools Foundation (UK) NSFUK, our Partner in the United Kingdom. The books donated to us in Nigeria were well received by the headteacher and the students.
