VolunteerCorps (VC) appreciates all that you have been doing to support its Tutoring Project in Osun State of Nigeria.
Since 1992, VC has upheld the tradition of providing free intensive coaching and mentoring sessions to public secondary school students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds. This year, VC is again committed to tutoring 10,000 children for free in the State of Osun to improve the results of students of public secondary schools in Osun State.
The Volunteer Corps 2019/2020 coaching session in Osun State of Nigeria which commenced in October 2019 with about 2, 096 students, 17 volunteers and in 4 centers is still ongoing. The project has witnessed an increase in the number of participating students and volunteers. Classes are organised during the weekends, from Friday to Sunday and volunteers still tutor the students with the previous teaching materials which were bought and distributed to the various coaching centres during the previous coaching session (2018/2019 session). Although Enrolment into the 2019/2020 coaching session has been concluded, students are still encouraged to take advantage of the session to enhance their results at the national examinations.
We have not been able to meet up our targets of distributing more teaching materials to the volunteer teachers and study materials to the students, providing decent meals to the students and teachers during prolonged hours of tutoring, and the earlier scheduled trainings for Volunteer teachers, due to sparse funds. We would appreciate your kind donations to help us achieve our targets and put smiles on the faces of indigent students in Osun state.
Please encourage your network to participate by making donations to support this cause.
