53 Okebode Students Receive Text & Exercise Books

The 53 Students
The 53 Students


Neither the unfriendly learning environment nor the dilapidated buildings begging for attention deters the students and the teachers of this school from being active to knowledge seeking and impacting. Information reaching the management of Initiative for Sound Education, Relationship & Health (ISERH) about the school's students level of brilliance, despite the inadequate teaching and learning materials available to them, prompted us to take our intervention program "Back to School Project" to them in order to support the school with teaching aids and provide learning materials to the 53 identified indigent brilliant students of the school.

Friday, 28th of September, 2019 was a memorable day for both the students and staff of Okebode Middle/High School, Atakunmosa West Local Government, Osun State as our team of 2, Director of Programs - Abimbola and Agricultural Project Director - Prince Adeniran, visited the school to distribute learning materials to the identified indigent students who had been anticipating the team's arrival.

In his welcoming remarks, the Principal of the School, Mr. Jimoh appreciated the kind gesture of the organisation for counting the school worthy without being discouraged by the remoteness of its location. He admonished the students to be of good conducts and face their studies. Our Director of Programs conveyed the good news of hope of the organisation's management to the enthusiastic students and their teachers, as he enjoined them to make best use of those materials to aid their learning. He emphasized the need to be diligent in their studies, as well as having strong determination to succeed. He however promised them a better 'Back to School Project' in the coming years - God Willing.

Chief (Mrs) Ajigboteleda, the Yeye Saloro of Okebode and Chairperson - Parents Teachers Association (PTA) of the school, was present to witness the exercise. She applauded the organisation's interventions and supports towards improving the State's education, while hoping that other well-meaning Osun people would rise to help the needy to make our society better off. She was delegated alongside Chief Ajanaku, the Baba Oja of Okebode, as representatives of Oba of Okebode to welcome our team and join them in the distribution of the materials brought for the students and the school management.

It is a general knowledge that most Schools in Osun State are faced with challenges of inadequate teaching materials and as such, ISERH supports schools visited with 3 cartons of chalks as well as packs of pens with the hope of making teaching more comfortable for them. This gesture was also extended to Okebode Middle/High School.

The management of ISERH hereby appreciates Kabiesi of Okebode, his Chiefs, the school's Principal, Staff, Corp Members, and Students for the friendliness and honour accorded our team. At ISERH, it is our conviction that through continuous supports for students and staff of schools, our objective of reducing number of out-of-school children and promotion of open access to learning shall be actualized.

Our appreciation to those who supported this project and we also anticipate more supports to reach more needy children of rural communities.

The 64 ISERH Associate Ambassadors
The 64 ISERH Associate Ambassadors


It was a long journey of about 5 months that started on the 5th of January, 2019 with 247 Undergraduates and Fresh Graduates from Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria that got admitted into ISERH Undergraduate Studies Class 2, out of 292 applicants from 8 countries. They all came in with the high hope, courage and determination to be trained by our various world-class facilitators on Leadership, Socio-corporate, Relationship, and Entrepreneurial Skills. The free course was held on Whatsapp every Saturday while the scholars were expected to record a 75% attendance rate, 50% facebook engagement rate, and implement a capstone project, either as a group or individuals, in order to graduate and get inducted as ISERH Associate Ambassadors.

It was indeed a battle for survival and can simply be seen as the quest for the best. Only 64 scholars of the course met all the requirements expected of them to graduate and get inducted as ISERH Associate Ambassadors. They are the courageous, highly determined, refined, outstanding, and industrious, who defiled all odds to see to the end of the course. They handled the course as if it’s certificate is equal to degree's. They formed groups in some cases, for the purpose of implementing the capstone project. Many made themselves 'a lone ranger', in the quest to implementing their capstone project. Coming in contact with them on the field would make you take their capstone project for their undergraduate's project.

We have never seen such courageous and determined young men/women as these our ISERH Associate Ambassadors. A new family has been born for them/us all, as they now have unrestricted access to the pool of undergraduates and graduates from African countries that made up this network. Aside this, they can now access various resources: human, opportunities, fellowships, internships, trainings/seminars, books, motivational/lecture audios and videos, jobs opportunities, mentorship, counseling, etc via our Ambassadors Portal as they possess their unique login details to the site:

From all of us at the Initiative for Sound Education, Relationship & Health (ISERH), we appreciate all the facilitators who freely trained these youngstars for the period of 5 months, and we enthusiastically commend the Associate Ambassadors for their doggedness, determination, ruggedness, focus, and courage in pursuit of the course to the logical conclusion. Congratulations dearest!

With these amazing Ambassadors, we have a high hope for the future of our continent and the world at large, as they have pledged to disseminate the knowledge garnered via the course to other young people around them. There is no doubt in us that they shall keep striving to becoming ethical leaders we trained them for.

God Bless You All.
You are our LOVE and FUTURE.
