The Global Shapers Community Uyo Hub ‘#E4SD Reading & Mentoring Challenge’ an initiative in fulfillment of the ‘Sustainable Development Goal 4 QUALITY EDUCATION’ to give 675,000 Student’s Books, set-up 150 Schools Libraries and pair 13,500 Role Models for mentoring in order to overhaul the academic and attitudinal achievements in the educational sector of Akwa Ibom state kicked off today in Uyo High School, Uyo.
The Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Barr. Onofiok Luke took up the first challenge. He commenced with reading a page from ‘Burning Hurt by Unyime-Ivy King’, then told the students his life story and how he connected the dots from a being a rural child to the No. 3 man in Akwa Ibom State.
There’s nothing like seeing a young person with the right values backed up with encouragement, emerging from poverty, going to college, and returning home as a true leader. That’s what #E4SD does — it equips young men and women to become leaders who can influence their own families, communities and nations for eternity.
We cannot always wait on the government, when there is truly something everyone can contribute to the development of his/her community. Join the challenge today to make education better in Akwa Ibom State. Give to education today by donating a book, enrich the library, become a mentor through #E4SD.
Today 2,051 students were signed up for mentoring.
