Education

It was Nelson Mandela who said that “On the foundation of Quality Education rests the cornerstones of freedom, democracy and sustainable human development”.

“Inclusive education is when all students, regardless of any challenges they may have, are placed in age-appropriate general education classes that are in their own neighbourhood schools to receive high quality instruction, interventions and supports that enable them to meet success in the core curriculum” (Bui, Quirk, Almazan, & Venti, 2010; Alquraini & Gut, 2012).

Pre-primary and primary education is the foundation for the future of learning and if by chance, any child should miss this stage of life, it becomes very difficult to integrate the child back to learning these things and sometimes may result in depression and even worst conditions.

In terms of human development, the importance of early childhood education cannot be overstated.

A child’s early years are the foundation for his or her future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning and learning abilities, including cognitive and social development. Well-established research continues to emphasize the importance of early childhood education as an essential building block of a child’s future success.

Children who are enrolled in an Early Childhood Education program achieve more success at school. As adults they have better career opportunities, improved health, and lower levels of dependence and crime rates than those who do not attend an early education program.

Efforts to improve early child development are an investment, not a cost. Investing in ECE helps promote economic growth while also helping to target the development of character and cognitive skills necessary for future success.

For every child, the attainment of basic literacy and numeracy skills are very important and should be NON-NEGOTIABLE.

This is our commitment.

Health

Health problems, even minor ones, can interfere with or even overshadow other aspects of one’s life. Even relatively minor health issues such as aches, pains, lethargy, and indigestion take a toll on happiness and stress levels.

Everyone needs good health to pursue go through life and achieve greater things, and for people in the rural communities, this basic right has been deprived, hence, our commitment to ensuring that in line with the objective of WHO, everyone attains the highest possible level of health that will enable them to lead a socially and economically productive live.

Leadership

According to John C. Maxwell, a Leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows others the way.

We are committed to training and raising selfless leaders who have empathy for their followers. Leaders who through community service have known what life is for people at the grassroot level, leaders who have in their little, gone the way to help their community, and rose to the apex of leadership to show others what it means to lead, all inclusively.

Capacity Building

Around the world concerns about quantity and quality of jobs for young women and men are rising. As a result of this youth employment is recognised as a main priority in several countries and a key issue for inclusive development.

Our commitment is to ensure that every youth who volunteers with our team gets at least, one of the 21st century skills needed for the future of work. These include; Communication skills, intercultural relationship, teamwork, contents creation, ICT knowledge and organizational abilities.

Capacity building approaches purposefully minimize an over-reliance on outside experts as sources of knowledge, resources, and solutions to community issues. By preventing a dependency relationship on outsiders from forming, capacity building encourages local people to take action on local issues themselves.
