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.

QuarterOne 2020Progress Report

QuarterOne 2020captured the resumption of the 2020 academic session and all beneficiaries resumed back to school with the zeal to perform better in their academics. Beneficiaries went shopping and the "needs and want" aspect of the Financial Literacy training skills acquired were put to use for this exercise.

 

Within the period under review, beneficiaries attended different programs within and outside the Foundation such as Dance, Drama, Creative Writing, Meet the Professional, Rotary Youth Leadership Award, Basic Leadership and Character Development etc. Their participation in these programs has ensured continuous growth in their psycho-social abilities, guidance and mentoring as well as their excellent performance in their first term examination. All beneficiaries participated in the 16 days Activism for Gender-Based Violence held at the Foundation on the topic, “Consent and Stigmatization, Challenges in Prevention and Reporting of Rape and Sexual Harassment”. They learnt where to seek redress and psychological counselling in the event of abuse or violations and strategies on how to prevent violation and abuse and the silence culture and Stigmatization culture around abuse was clarified.

 

Beneficiaries in the upper Primary School and Junior Secondary School have shown great improvement in their psychosocial abilities through their participation in the team bonding exercises at the Foundation’s Youth Centre and this has helped their ability to interact more with students from other schools and encouraged her to speak out more. Usman attended the Citizenship & Leadership Training organized by the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Abuja and also participated in the 2019 Rotary Youth Leadership Award where he received a certificate of attendance and participation respectively.

 

Limitations

The project still witnesses some limitations; they are:

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

 

Recommendation

  1. Adequate resources to support current and new beneficiaries.
