Our little community library brings books closer to the children to read in their community. This we are doing to integrate and amplify the reading culture among children and teenagers, thereby raising leaders in our target community.

We collaborate with an already existing structure in target community, in this case, churches, to provide space for the children to hang out with books, to borrow books and for the security of the books and children. Every of our Little Community Library is launched with a minimum of 100 Children books, managed by a volunteer librarian from the local Community on a monthly stipend.

Children in these community who sign up to be part of the little community, will be allowed to come read a book, be read to, borrow books every Saturday and have special treats with guest once Saturday every month.

This we are doing to empower disadvantaged children with books, reading materials and a community that helps them to realize their full potential.

The State of Education in Warri

On my way to the office, I met a young man pushing wheel barrow, inside it, was an empty rice sack. Are you not going to school, I asked him? "I go, go school, I needs to pack the dirts from one of my customers house before I go school" he said.
I knew Alex late September. He was about beating up one of his business associate, (Dirty packer,) Kama who attended our very first "Books On The Go" event in Enerhen town, Warri.

They were arguing among themselves who will be the one that will dispose the waste of some people in the neighborhood. I had to intervene and asked questions resolve the squabbles.

This young lads, rent wheelbarrow in the morning and go around the neighborhood carrying dirts and dump it in the nearby river at a fee. At the end of every weekend business day, they make an average a 1,000 - 2,000 Naira after payment of expense (renting of wheelbarrow and payment at the river) from waste disposal.

Reflecting on this incidence, I recalled I had with Aunty Takure Caroline, the Principal of Ugbolokposo secondary school. She said Collins, Gender equality in education is changing quickly especially in the education sector. For example, We have more girls going to schools now than boys. In a class of 78 students, we can have 45 - 50 girls, why? She continued the boys are either looking for quick money through fraudulent means or through very minimal jobs.
These kids do this at the detriment of the environment, causing health challenges to themselves and others and neglecting their education, the bedrock of their and national development.

A recent picture I received from my a friend described how Education in Warri has been neglected. The state of education in Warri is one of neglect. When I saw the picture, I asked myself how come this is possible Airport road? Airport road Is not just the commercial hub of the city, it’s one of the high end areas and most popular route in the city. One will ordinarily assume that public schools along the location of the first airport in Delta state will have at least all the basic tools for learning, but it's sad to see students seating on the floor in Ogberikoko secondary school, airport road.

A recent statistics states that 1 out of every 5 illiterate or out of school children globally, is a Nigerian. Nigeria has over 10M out of school children. This is sad.

The consequence of an uneducated society is a factory churning out young people who abuse drugs, involve in cultism, communal clashes, terrorism, and various criminal acts such as armed robbery, human trafficking, kidnapping, and juvenile delinquency etc to make end meets.

The National Commission for Mass Literacy Adult and Non-formal Education (NMEC), recently said that 35 percent of the nation’s adult population was illiterate. It's shocking but I had no reason to question this data, because my recent experience teaching inmates at Nigeria Prison Warri, opened me up to practical data.
I discovered that inside the prison yard of a little over 1,200 inmates, less than 500 had proper education and amongst this number only a handful finished primary and secondary school.

According to NMEC, literacy rate is the percentage of people from the age of 15 and above who can read and write simple statements on their everyday life.

It’s shameful that everyday para educational outfits like extra-mural are springing up, adult night classes are increasing in the city of Warri when government is spending billions of Naira in education. Although their earlier ignorance of education led us here, but it’s high time, Education gets same budget as health because it tied to the quality of life.

Any time i traveled out of Warri, I get this are you from Warri, these question arise because I am kind of different from the lot and I a doing something to contribute to the development of the city. A careful look at the people who bring shame to Warri are the uneducated who can contribute little or nothing to the development of city.

Education is the bedrock of any country, if we must build a NewWarri, then we must join hand with the government to combat the educational crisis we can achieve a 99.9% literate in Warri.

Neglect of Education partly accounts for the low level of development and negative image, because the growth and development of anywhere depend largely on the quantity and quality of all segments of that place.
Literacy rates in countries like Cuba, Poland, and Estonia are as high as 99.8 per cent, while Barbados, Latvia and Slovenia have attained 99.7 per cent, according to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Report (2007/2008). That report put Nigeria's literacy rate at 69.1 per cent.

In drawing this to a close, It's expedient that I point out that there are some good schools in Warri, but not for the average residents. Cost of the school per term is a little less than the improved annual minimum wage. Schools like Lakeland schools Ogunu, Edjeba Estate School, Eagle Height, International Unity School, Wingate International School etc, fall under this category. Equipped with good structure and library. Not many schools come close with standard and calibre of teachers. I see Delta Career along Airport road as one of the very best in the city, although they are not as expensive like Eagle Height or Lakeland, but they have raised some of the city's finest people both in Warri and Diasporas for the past 40 years. This year marks their 40th year of consecutively delivering quality education in the city.

In conclusion, there is a need for investment in both formal and non-formal basic education in Warri, irrespective of age or class, so that children and adults interested in education can have access to adequate educational opportunities which will help them develop their literacy skills and thereby bring development.
Often times, we hear people say that our educational system is broken, yet our university are flooded, and we keep using certificates from this broken system to apply for jobs and travelI abroad.

The admittance that the government cannot do it alone, should motivate and drive both the social and private sector to fight educational neglect in the city. 

There are number of ways and platforms we can commit ourselves to improving the state of the education in Warri.

There are social and advocacy organization one can commit to give attention to education in the city. One of such is WarriReads.

WarriReads believe that Education remains the most viable solution out of poverty. This local library works to empower children with books and learning tools, that can help them break the barrier between them and quality education.

Warri Effurun Peace Marathon

More than 800 marathons are held throughout the world each year and for various purposes e.g. charity, sporting event, for peace and also as memorials. The Warri Effurun Peace Marathon is for peace.
Many of the competitors of Warri Effurun Peace Marathon are recreational athletes, sport lovers or those interested in charity, peace work etc. In the last Warri Effurun Peace Marathons, we had over 3,000 thousands of participants including par parathletes.

The Warri Effurun Peace Marathon is a 10KM marathon designed to promote peace and revive economic development in Warri, this once peaceful and economic hub of Delta state, is now the oil city ravaged by years of tribal wars and ethnic squabbles.

Running a marathon can improve your physical health in numerous ways. It can help you sleep better, strengthen and tone your leg, help you burn calories,  weight and put in good shape. Marathon training has a way of challenging even the fittest athletes and above all it has the capacity to bring a community together, the almost half marathon is striving towards this goal in the Oil city of Warri.

In a tweet, replying Barrack Obama, World Marathon record holder Eluid Kipchoge, who ran the full length of a marathon (26 miles 385 yards) under two hours, crossing the finish line at 1 hour 59 minutes 40 seconds in Vienna said. Running World is a peaceful World. This we believe strongly, this is why for the past 4 years we’ve invested time, energy and resources in a running Warri.
The Warri Effurun Peace Marathon has a rich heritage of promoting peace, unity, security, health and economic growth in the oil city of Warri. It started in 2016 and it's gradually becoming one of the oldest and safest marathon in Nigeria.
The Warri Effurun Peace Marathon will be celebrating her 5th anniversary, on the 28th of March 2020. 5 years of consistently promoting peace through running and youth engagement. The promise from our convener Mrs. Joyce Broderick Bozimo in her own words "It's not only going to be the biggest sporting event in Delta State, it's also going to be exciting, laced with amazing prizes to be won by contestants and networking opportunities. Our last marathon had over 3,000 participants and we can't wait for 2020 to come to run with top Nigeria runners.

If you are a lover of peace, mark your calendar to participate in our 10KM race.

What empowerment?

I got a WhatsApp broadcast this morning and began to wonder, where we are headed as young people.

The message, a clear attempt to exploit reading empowerment.

Below is the content of message.

Empowerment! Empowerment!! Empowerment!!!

This is to inform all Youths in Warri Federal  Constituency that there is a GOOGLE DIGITAL SKILL TRAINING programme, organized by Hon. (Chief) Thomas Ereyitomi, member federal house representative, representing Warri Federal constituency.

All necessary payments for the training has been taken care of by Hon, Chief Thomas Ereyitomi for all youths from Warri Federal constituency.

Participants will be trained on how to develop Google AD's, Google contents and other interesting packages that will make youths financially independent. A Google license certificate will be issued to participants as well.


The training is slated to hold on;
Thursday September 26, 2019
Venue: CEDAR HALL , NO. 41 Airport Road, Opposite Edjeba  Junction, Warri, Delta State.
Time: 9am prompt.

All youths in the Warri Federal Constituency are advised to make use of this opportunity to better their lives and be financially independent.

Note: There will be free Feeding.

For more information contact;
Emma Nunu 08023239671
Hon. Stephen Dolor 08033541758
Alex Gbiwen 08036130765
Seth Douperegha 08067384053

Here's my irritation, Anyone serious enough can learn the under listed courses free from Google. Have a google account and you are all signed up to Learn Google Digital Skill

"All necessary payments for the training has been taken care of by Hon, Chief Thomas Ereyitomi for all youths from Warri Federal constituency."

You'll be shocked the amount that will be said was spent on this project, if it's listed as a constituency project.

If the Hon. Rep, does, we'd like to know the cost of the project.
What's the cost per head?

We have a much more educated society, yet remain gullible and susceptible for manipulation by people we have contracted leadership too.

Waste remains a challenge in the society, teach people how to recycle and make money from it. I heard that FUPRE is working on a machine that mixes plastic sand and cement to make bricks and roofing sheets. Now that's something laudable.

Carry out training on Fishing and Agriculture. We still spend billions annually importing fish and other agro products. There are young people who are willing and ready to be trained on how.

This is not empowerment, this is exploitation iced with food.

Just imagine.
