My NYSC/SDG Project Story

My NYSC / SDG Project tagged ‘Project Renaissance‘ was influenced by my exposures to the SDG. I was deployed to Adamawa state for my mandatory one year National Youth Service Corps where I joined the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) group during my orientation course. After the orientation course, I redeployed to Lagos state where I was posted to Jedavine Kings College Igbo-Olomu under Ikorodu Local Government Ikorodu which also served as my SDGs Platform.
As a result of my training as a Development Knowledge Facilitator (DKF) and with a deep interest for education as outlined in the SDGs Goal 4 which focuses on Quality Education, I decided to focus on upgrading the learning environment as a contribution to the environmental factors which enhances effective teaching and learning.
I was spurred by the poor state of the school environment as at the time I was posted to the school and my desire to show the practicality of the SDGs to the students as they double as my Platform students, made me  setup my project in their school.
The project involves a total makeover of three classrooms. There was replacement of the existing white marker boards and painting of the three classrooms. Immediately I got approval for it, I swung into action by  raising funds and it was completed.
NYSC projects are easy to conceive but getting funds can be a herculean task. An advice to the Government  will be to support corp members with genuine project ideas. Every time I look at the pictures, I feel fulfilled  but that would not have happened without NYSC /SDG…
This is my NYSC / SDG story.

Senate President Bukola Saraki on Sunday visited the National Youth Service Corps camp in Kwara State over the death of Miss Hilda Amadi who passed on while in the camp last week.

The senate president announced his visit to the NYSC in a tweet via his twitter handle @bukolasaraki.

The tweet read: “I heard about the tragic passing of Miss Hilda Amadi earlier this week at the NYSC Camp in Kwara. So, this afternoon, I went to spend some time with the Corps Members at the camp to reassure them that their safety, wellbeing and development remains our priority”.

Miss Hilda died last week at the orientation camp located in Yikpata Edu local government area of the state after she suffered fracture during a morning drill.‎

The corps member was a graduate of Oil & Gas, University of Port Harcourt.

A corps member who spoke with Sahara reporters on a condition of anonymity decried the state of the medical facility at the NYSC Camp affirming that her deceased colleague lost her life because of inadequate medical attention: “She suffered a fracture during the Man ‘O’ War drill and she was rushed to the clinic here on camp, but there was no medical facility. No X-Ray Machine, no drugs, nothing was there. She had to buy bandages with her own money. There was no doctor, it was the medical students here that were stationed at the clinic.”
