ISERH GRADUATES AND INDUCTS 56 AS ASSOCIATE AMBASSADORS FROM ISERH UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES CLASS 3

It was a long journey of 5 months that started on the 6th of July, 2019 with 157 Undergraduates and Fresh Graduates from Ghana, Kenya, Burundi, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Malawi, and Nigeria that got admitted into ISERH Undergraduate Studies Class 3, out of 493 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 56 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.

Scholar Yusuf, a graduate of Social Works from Fourah Bay College University – Sierra Leone, made a history as he implemented 2 capstone projects against 1 mandatory project, and reached 715 beneficiaries in Sierra Leone against from the stipulated minimum of 8 beneficiaries. Consequently, he was announced as the winner of the $100 maiden edition of ISERH Facilitators Prize as a honour for his outstanding performance during the course of studies.

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 newly launched Associate Ambassadors Portal as they possess their unique login details to the site: http://ius.iserh.org and can as well blog for the world to read.

Our inducted Associate Ambassadors are undergraduates/graduates of the following institutions:

1. Lagos State University (10)
2. Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta (9)
3. University of Ilorin (4)
4. National Open University of Nigeria (4)
5. Fourah Bay College University of Sierra Leone (3)
6. Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti (2)
7. University of Benin (2)

12. Gombe State University (1)
13. Federal College of Education (Special) Oyo (1)
14. Kwara State University (1)

20. Osun State Polytechnic, Iree (1)
21. Milton Margai College of Education and Technology, Sierra Leone (1)
22. Federal University of Technology Akure (1)
23. University of Ibadan (1)

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.

132 IWARA MIDDLE SCHOOL'S STUDENTS GET BOOKS

'Your visit was timely and this intervention program of yours will really help boost our pupils' morale. On behalf of the students and the entire management of the school, we say a big thank you'. Those were the words of the Principal of Iwara Middle School, Iwara in Atakunmosa East Local Government Area of Osun State, Mr. L. R. Orisajinmi, when our team visited the school on Thursday 3rd October, 2019 with the primary target of 50 Beneficiaries but the situation in the school forced the target to 132 by the way of giving items meant for 50 to 132 students.

The Vice Principal of the school, Mr. O. Ayodele, eulogized the organization for supporting indigent students of hard-to-reach rural communities. He then prayed for more success in our endeavors. The enthusiastic students were provided with exercise books, textbooks, and pens to aid their learning.

ISERH Director of Programs, Aderanti Abimbola, encouraged the students to see this kind gesture as an encouragement to be serious with their studies while encouraging the staff to see it as a call to service in revamping the educational sector of the state. He thereafter presented the school with 3 cartons of chalks and a Pack of Pens to help aid their teaching.

Based on our mandate, Initiative for Sound Education, Relationship & Health (ISERH) will not relent in her efforts towards supporting hapless students of the state and as well as reward excellence. We appreciate those who donated towards this project directly or through GlobalGiving as we call for more supports to help make it sustainable thus revamping the educational sector of the state.

90 OSOWUSI STUDENTS OF ILOKO-JESA BENEFIT ISERH BACK TO SCHOOL PROJECT

'For counting our school worthy of this kind gesture, only God can reward you' - those were a part of the words spoken by the enthusiastic principal of Osowusi Middle/High School, Iloko-jesa, Oriade Local Government of Osun State - Mr. Ipoola A. O., as our team visited them for our Back to School Project. This is a project designed to support indigent students with education materials to aid their learning and support schools with teaching aids.

Wednesday, 2nd October, 2019 was yet another awesome outing for ISERH Team as students and staff of the named school welcomed the team amidst excitement. It is important to note that this school had produced 2 beneficiaries of ISERH SSCE/UTME Scholarship, of whom one is undergoing her Industrial Attachment Training (IT) with a Nigerian giant bank having completed her Ordinary National Diploma course at The Federal Polytechnic Ede. However, it saddens to note that despite the zeal and passion displayed by these students towards learning, majority of them still lack basic writing materials, while their ever-ready-to-impact teachers also need teaching aids to make their works easy and fun-filled.

Aderanti Abimbola, ISERH Program Director, and his colleague Akinwole Isiaq, ABC Project Director, appreciated the management for their warm reception while reiterating the organization's commitment to not only advocate for good educational policies but as well grant scholarships to deserving students and as well provide basic materials to the needy and the school at large. He further stated that the organisation's support to make education accessible for every willing students she comes across in the state is borne out of passion to impact this generation and those to come. He concluded his speech by admonishing them to be of good character and pursue their dreams diligently.

After the presentation of 3 cartons of chalks to the school, the Principal lauded the management of ISERH for such initiative as he called for such gesture and many more from well-meaning Nigerians. ISERH presents chalks to visited schools with the hope of making teaching easier for the teachers as many are instances where schools run out of chalks/basic teaching tools and such put a stop to covering the syllabus for the term.

As ISERH continues in her quest to supporting the vulnerable ones, our special appreciation to those who have been supporting this project via Global Giving and other direct support into our account. Together, we can conveniently breath life into every youth's dream.

53 STUDENTS OF OKEBODE MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL BENEFIT FROM ISERH BACK TO SCHOOL PROJECT

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.
