May to July 2021:

 

Summary

Inwelle Centre Maid Strong Project continues to wax stronger and stronger in spite of lack of funds.

Since May 2021, we have

  • tutored  indigent girls in Mathematics, Sciences, and Computer literacy;
  • assisted our Miad Strong teenage single mothers in acquiring marketable skills and returning to school, taking  school exams that have the potential to raise  their monthly earning from $30.00 to $100.00;
  • worked diligently to change mindsets of under-aged single mothers from becoming baby factories and rehabilitating and uniting them with their families;
  • continued to provide health care information, face masks, school materials, and access to clean water to help in hygiene and sanitation;
  • started the process of registering an academy for the indigent; and
  • started a women’s progressing project to build the capacity of rural women to keep their young daughters at home, instead of trafficking them to the city centers where they are sexually exploited and where they face untold sexual and physical violence.

 

Access to Clean Water

We reported last quarter that our water pump sumo was vandalized and stolen. Being very much aware that combating the COVID-19 pandemic necessitates that people wash hands more frequently than before and that water supply is absolutely necessary, we made making our bore hole functionable again. We were able to replace our solar sumo pump through tasking ourselves to provide the N450,000.00 required to buy a new pump. We now have water. The village has water as well. The photos below show the new installations

 

Tutoring:

We continued to tutor young people, especially young girls at our satellite centres. See photos.

As we continue to tutor indigent girls, we continue to see the need for providing quality education that will level the field for these girls and curb the system that makes them graduate almost illiterates. Our biggest achievement this quarter is setting the establishing of Inwelle Centre International Academy for Girls in Motion. See our logo.

 

Fortifying the women to empower the Maid Strong Girls

We started by teaching our adult education women  rudimentary things – adult education and healthcare information. We have been teaching them arithmetic—addition, subtraction, multiplication-- to make them literate, we taught them how to write simple sentences, their names, for even though they can speak pidgin English, some of them have never written much. We also taught them the rudiments of event hosting/catering. We have taught them how to make bar and liquid soap, disinfectant, and bleach. The make these in small scale and sell to their neighbours.  Presently, our strategy is to scale up their skill level and guide them to form a formidable team, capable of becoming a moving force in the economic life of the community and other communities bothering the town. Hence we are guiding them to start a cooperative.

Activities:

  1. Twenty-five women comprising widows, single mothers, and survivors of violence against women are being organized and trained to start and register a cooperative, form a leadership structure, open an account, market their products and pay themselves salaries.
  2. By August ending, they will be trained in serious skills that will enable them generate income.
  3. We have hired a business expert to teach the women the skills needed to market, distribute, keep proper accounting method and advertise their product.
  4. Ten of the women will learn how to make soap, disinfectant, bleach, sanitizer and other products needed to keep good hygiene and to combat such pandemic as; Ten women will learn bakery, event hosting and event decoration; while Five women will learn the administrative, marketing, and account keeping for the cooperative. Once the cooperative starts running, the women will teach each other their area of capacity. In the end, all the women will know how to function in each of the areas.
  5. We will Purchase equipment for baking, event hosting, and event decoration.
