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!
