Delta State, The Big Heart!
Our Monitoring and Evaluation team was in Delta State and once again our team came face to face with N-Power volunteers who were making an impact in their communities.
Delta State is ethnically diverse, with four linguistic stocks of people and seven languages between them yet the volunteers are unified in making an impact in their communities.
Nana Model College, Warri
At Nana Model College, we met some of the N-Power Teach volunteers and saw the impact some of these volunteers have had on the students in those schools.
Felix Jimi is an N-Power Volunteer at the Nana Model College, Warri. He teaches the older classes at the college. The students believe he brings a different approach to teaching subjects.
For Adaro Regina, she admitted that the program has been a blessing to her life and the students she teaches. She says she has harnessed her passion and love for teaching
Central Hospital, Warri
We met with N-Power Health volunteers deployed to Central Hospital, Warri. Going through the attendance records, we discovered that none of them have missed a work day since they were deployed to their primary place of assignment. At the hospital, they are all utilized in one capacity or the other.
Luine Fish Farms, Warri
Timeyin Laju is an N-Power Agro Volunteer in Delta. He now owns his fish farm after learning new fishing techniques from one of his ADP farmers, Lawrence Inone of Luine Fish Farms, Warri. He is in a network of other like minded young farmers that desire to move agriculture business forward
The farm owner is Mr. Lawrence Inone (a retiree of Shell Petroluem) says all he has wanted to do since 2007 was mass production of fish to feed the entire nation of Nigeria. He has tutored and mentored N-Power Agro volunteers
Primary Health Centre, Otokutu, Ughelli
Harriet Azurundu, Mary James and Jennifer Angese are three female volunteers in the N-Health programme who established a mini laboratory at the Primary Health Centre, Otokutu, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta.
Jennifer Angese (2013 Pharmacology graduate of Delta State University); Mary James (2011 Microbiology graduate of Unijos); and Harriet Azurundu (2001, BSc Microbiology — Imo State University — and 2008 MLSc –UPTH) contributed money to purchase the equipment and establish the laboratory in April, four months after their deployment to the PHC to provide medical outreach to the rural community.
The trio said they felt pity for the community who had to travel long distances to access medical facilities.
Meeting with the Honourable Commissioner, Ministry of Planning, Delta State
Our team had a meeting with the Honourable Commissioner of Economic Planning, Dr. Kingsley Emu. We enumerated the need to scale up continuous value orientation for the volunteers.
