Project Back to School - an Olamild Ent Initiative

A renowned personal development legend by the name Jim Rohn once said that if someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around.

About two months ago, we celebrated Nigeria's 50th independence anniversary. Millions were wasted on unnecessary items when it could have been invested in our educational system. Although Nigerians aged below 35 constitute more than 70 percent of the nation’s population, the percentage of Nigerians that get a sound education is demeaning. To worsen matters, our educational system delivered a 98% failure in the 2010 NECO examinations.

There is need for an improved higher education system and it must start with us paying attention to our preschool, elementary and secondary school. These areas are the building blocks of society's educational foundation and lack of a good education would contribute to social ills including crime and prostitution.

A society that fails to empower its younger generation through qualitative education is preparing for extinction; that is why Olamild Entertainment an organization founded to provide in-depth information about the African entertainment industry by showcasing Africans who are making impacts in their chosen fields of human endeavors with a view to motivating the youths to greatness came up with this youth empowerment project tagged ’BACK TO SCHOOL.’ We are of the belief that youth education and empowerment cannot be left in the hands of government and parents alone, we all have roles to play in making the children of today good leaders tomorrow.

Project Back to School was originally scheduled to hold in four states in Nigeria, namely Lagos, Enugu, Port Harcourt and Abuja; due to unforeseen circumstances, it will hold in several cities in LAGOS including Makoko and Amuwo Odofin(Dec 18 - 30). A minimum of Fifty students will be selected for the project in each of the city to benefit from the first phase of the project; a total of about four hundred primary school students will be provided with school supplies like exercise books, erasers and pencils that will last them for the 2011 year. This will go a long way in alleviating the challenges faced by these students in their respective schools.

You are encouraged to support the cause by donating supplies.
