Staryting from September 2019 to date, at the five centres that we are running the Maid Strong projects, girls were tutored in academic subjects and computer literacy and computer skills acquisition. The exciting result from our July to August is that our boot camp beneficiaries went to their various villages and started teaching other vulnerable girls. They taught young girls the following academic subjects and skills. They taught the Central Processing Unit (CPU) as the main Component of a Computer hardware system, its function, and its parts. They engaged in the practical skill by teaching MS Word, Visual Basic 6.0 programming, and computer hardware repair and maintenance. These are knowledge they acquired during their one month boot camp at Enugu in July-August, 2019. They taught arithmetic, integrated science, and social studies.
The girls organizing a symposium with other young girls in the village by teaching them how to debate in preparation for Inwelle Centre annual symposium. The topic of thr symposium is “Education as The Bedrock of a Better Future.” The girls are also learning a traditional dance they will use in entertaining the audience that day instead of paying another group to dance. This way, they generate income for themselves through the gift of money the audience will give them while watching their dance. We are happy that they are learning how to generate fund by using the entertainment industry. The girls also go round the village to gather other girls to talk to them about Violence Against Women and how to avoid becoming a victim and how to report it if they see something. Their “See something; Say something” campaign is catching on in the villages. In some of the satellite Centres, the boot camp girls engaged in adult education, tutoring, and computer skills acquisition. They went to the village women’s meetings to advertise the adult education, tutored the Catch-them Young group in academic subjects, especially how to spell, read and write. Beneficiaries Trained September to Date (Total = 135): Females 99 and Males 36.
