Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to develop grass-root primary education with focus on rural area of Nigeria.My aim is to collaborate with National youth service corp for graduates(a year program) for them to be posted to primary schools to boost the ratio of teachers to student
It's all part of making a better world.
As a graduate of the scheme i found out that most National youth corp members are posted to secondary schools and their impact are not felt in the rural areas because the standard of education in the primary school was already bad(Building a house on Bad foundation.)Their will be well grounded primary school graduates with better communication skills that can compete with their peers in the urban areas
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by the students in the rural areas(Northern parts of Nigeria) and also teachers that will continue with them in their secondary education.The host community will also benefit because they will feel their rejuvenated sense of belonging in the Nation
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Strong educational backgrounds to prepare them for their higher Education.
Improvement in their communication skills ie English
Sense of belonging and able to compete with their other peers
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Making sure they can read and write,Enroll them in competitions with their peers in other regions so they can also see how far they have progressed,Also reaching out to my collaborators The National youth Corp service on their thoughts for improvement.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
