NGO PROMOTES READING CULTURE THROUGH BOOK DONATION

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela

To attain the #GlobalGoals, innovative methodologies must be adopted to fit into various specifics across location and cultural scopes. At Media for Community Change we constantly celebrate the efforts of non-state actors in this regard, especially at local levels.

WholeLife Initiative for Development in Africa (WID-Africa) is one of such organization whose contribution to sustainable development impresses and inspires us. On Saturday, June 30 2018, this group facilitated a Book Donation Campaign which eventually led to a school establishment of a library at Calvary Love Academy in Jikwoyi Phase 2, Abuja.

The aim of this NGO – WholeLife Initiative for Development in Africa, is to resuscitate and promote the reading culture among students in Nigeria through the Book Donation Campaign and establishment of the school library.

For them, the declining success rate of students, especially in the northern part of Nigeria was a challenge and through this project they hope to instil the zeal to learn and make available learning materials for students, who otherwise, will become miscreants and threats to national development.

To a great extent this drive by these young Nigerians led by Ms. Chimere Olukwu has greatly contributed to drive #QualityEducation – #SDG4 in Nigeria while inspiring many more groups to do more.
