Socio-demographic Description of beneficiaries

20 beneficiaries are currently enrolled on the PNE scholarship scheme and their demography is shown in the graph below. For the female beneficiaries, there are 7 in Senior Secondary School, 5 in Junior Secondary School and 2 in Primary School. For the male beneficiaries, we have 1 in Primary School, 4 in Junior Secondary School and 1 in Senior Secondary School. The ages of beneficiaries in primary school range from 11 – 12 years while the ages of beneficiaries in secondary school range from 10 – 18years. 

 

QuarterFour 2019Progress Report

The period under review captured the resumption of the 2019/2020 academic session and all beneficiaries were provided new textbooks, notebooks, school bags and school uniforms. Other workbooks and practical materials were also provided as indicated by their schools. Similarly, the PNE beneficiaries were provided nutritional and casual wears support; the food items included staple foods such as rice and beans as well as beverages and cereals.

 

Due to the change of school administrators in Lagos state, a Letter of Introduction was sent to all Principals and Headmasters/Headmistresses to intimate them on the Project “No Excuses” scholarship scheme. This was followed by a visit to introduce the Foundation and the PNE project inorder to create a good relationship and interaction with all schools for an effective monitoring and mentoring system for beneficiaries.

 

Beneficiaries attended different programmes within and outside the Foundation such as Dance, Drama, Creative Writing, Meet the Professional, etc. This is to ensure their continuous growth, development, guidance and mentoring.

 

Limitations

Some of thelimitations arestill pending.

  1. PNE beneficiaries are increasingly having accommodation challenges due to recent urban development activities within the state and this has resulted in relocation by some beneficiaries.
  2. Transport support is also increasingly becoming a necessity as most beneficiaries are having trouble with punctuality and regular attendance in school owing to their relocation. The state government’s policy, which does not allow change of school within the state has equally made this challenging.
  3. Thereisanincreasing numberofunderserved butdeservingchildrenwho arecurrentlynotbenefiting from thePNE.

 

Recommendation

  1. More resources to support current beneficiaries.
  2. More funding for  additional students to benefit from the scheme.
