DAY-2 UPDATE (13th March) of ARLFoundation Edu-Project 2018

As part of our ongoing _FREE STUDENTS TRAINING & BOOK DONATION Project_ as approved by the Lagos State Ministry of Education, the two schools we visited today are located at two extreme borders of Ikorodu community. The first school visited was Zumuratul Islamiyyah Senior Grammar School at Igbogbo for the morning training session, and other being Odogunyan Senior Grammar School at Odogunyan for afternoon training session.
Approximately, we had about 1000 population of students reached today which is a double of the two schools from yesterday. Indeed, it was a tough call trying to cordinate such a huge population of energetic and vibrant young people, but with the number of volunteer facilitators who showed up to support us, we were able to split into small groups and achieve greater impact with today’s training programme.
The genuine support and dedication of all our volunteers as well  as the cooperation of the principals of all the four schools visited so far is worthy of mention. Considering the feedbacks and responses of the students and teachers, we can, without any iota of doubt, say that the free students training and book donation project is achieving its primary purpose of empowering these young minds to increase their yearning for excellence.
A big THANK YOU these awesome individuals who served with us today:

About the Book (Success Equation):

We have come to realize that in most students is an instinct for academic and career success, but the inability to get their focus and priorities right has been a major hindrance for them to reach their desired pinnacle of success. Hence, Success Equation is a self-help book that provides a step-by-step guidance to help students identify their individual learning challenges and as well proffer practical solutions on how to transit from poor or average academic performance towards achieving academic excellence.

Aside other regular academic books, Success Equation is written to inspire students not only to crave for success but put them through how they can achieve it with determination and hard-work. The book is an easy read, inspiring, informative and engaging.

Author: Ezekiel Akinrinade

Foreword by: Dr. (Mrs.) Adetoun G. Emiola, Lecturer at the University of Lagos

National Dialogue on HB 585 NGO Bill.

The national assembly is set to pass a Bill for the regulations of the activities of Non Governmental Organisations in Nigeria.

The Bill was sponsored by a member of the House of Representatives from Kogi State.

The Bill amongst other seek that after completing corporate affairs commission registration, NGO must register with the yet to be approved commission which the proposed Bill seek to create and must sought the approval of the commission before embarking on any project. In effect, this means no single project can be implemented without an approval from the commission.

Having realise the consequence of the implications of the Bill, the Network of Nigeria NGO (NNNGO) in collaboration with Innercity Mission for Children organized a stakeholders National Dialogue on the NGO Regulatory Bill (HB585) to discuss the issues arising from its consequence if passed into law.

A total number of one hundred and twenty (120) participants from across the 36 states were in attendance including the FCT to dialogue and chart a common cause for the non profit sector.

It was unanimously agreed that the Bill, if allowed to scale through and passed into law, would not only frustrate the activities of NGOs but also kill the sector.
Some of the threats posed by this proposed bill are highlighted as the following:

— It will restrict and cut short the voice of advocacy and subject the civic space to the dictate of incumbent government.

— It will incarcerate the civil society practitioners towards being responsive to act of autocratic governance.

— It will restrict, constraint and control the work of practitioners in the civic space.

The Bill is a monster that has the capacity of hindering the complementing efforts from civil society towards the development of the nation and reduction of social vices.

The stakeholders also charge the practitioners in the civic space to be responsible and accountable. Also to be compliant with the existing regulations.

African Resourceful Leaders Foundation (ARLFoundation) was represented at the National Dialogue by Mr. Jamiu Akangbe.

The official communique will be put up once it’s sent by the committee.
