2nd Leadership Leadership Training Progress Report

From 16th to 18th December, 2011, New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation hosted its 2nd Annual Leadership Education and Peace Training Program. The theme of the training was: The Role of Young People in Achieving the UN MDGs and Peace building in Nigeria. The program sought to catalyze the emergence of a new generation of youth leaders who will participate effectively in forging a strong democratic, people-centred development and sustainable economic emancipation in Nigeria, as well as to foster, develop and support
youth initiative, and a strong representational youth voice in the service and decision making process of our nation, and to engage youth as resources for peace, good governance, interfaith dialogue, towards the achievement of the
United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Due to the current security challenges in Nigeria, participants were selected from Five (5) senior secondary schools within Jos only.

Five students each were selected from the following schools:

a. Creative Minds International Academy

b. Kings Secondary School

c. Government Secondary, Kufang

d. Plastab Comprehensive College, Jos

e. Mount Olive Comprehensive College, Jos

The objective of the training was to impart self leadership skills to grassroots youth who will in turn develop cells of change within their communities. This was the 2nd training undertaken by New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation under its grassroots youth leadership development program. The young participants received training on:

  1. Good governance
  2. Personal development and communication skills
  3. Dialogue and Non-violence
  4. Volunteerism and Community Service
  5. Decision- making
  6. Advocacy

The Youth Leadership Training empowered participants and developed their leadership skills so that they can effectively participate and contribute to national development with a focus to their immediate community.

On behalf of New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation, a Jos-Nigeria based registered nonprofit with a mission is to build, support and empower teams of youth with capacities to emerge from a life on the streets, drugs and dysfunctional families, to becoming leaders capable of helping themselves and their communities, I am writing to express our most profound gratitude to each one of you, for the tremendous support and goodwill you extended to us, in helping us to meet the $4000 threshold during the GlobalGiving August Open Challenge. I am happy to report to you all that the total amount raised at the end of August 2011 was actually $4780. We have seen received the funds from GlobalGiving, after the 15% deductions. We are so very grateful. I want to thank and assure you that this money will be applied accordingly.

Just last Saturday, we successfully hosted and concluded the 3rd Annual International Conference on Interfaith Dialogue and Non-Violent Communication, at the Rockfield Motel, Rayfield, Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria, with over 150 participants from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and the United States of America. The Conference was co-sponspored by The Voices of Angels Foundation and the Jewish-Palestinian Living Rooom Dialogue Group.At the end of the Conference, the participants made a very passsionate appeal to our Governments at various levels, religious leaders, etc, to join forces in working for a peaceful and harmonious world. This appeal and other reports of the conference are now available at: New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation

I am very pleased to report tp you that the Leadership Education and Peace Training Institute, for which you helped us raise funds will now be conducted from 24th to 26th November, 2011 at the RURCON GUEST House, in Jos, Nigeria. We have received applications and carefully selected 30 undergraduates, drawn from Universities across towns and cities in Nigeria to participate in this training. We have also used part of the funding to purchase resource materials and equip our Leadership Education and Peace Training Institute well ahead of the training. In the next report, I will send you digital images, along with the Income and Expenditure Schedule.
