Wednesday, 2nd of September was an exceptionally great day as IOWA foundation visited two schools in the axis of Illupeju, Estate secondary school, Oshodi and Agbayewa memorial college, Olusoji Idowu respectively. The project was supported with about 15 volunteers including some support team from Rave TV to capture every moment of the outreach.
The purpose of the outing was to distribute safety materials while we sensitize the secondary school graduating students writing their WACE on the importance of safety as a key factor in dealing with the ravaging pandemic. It was important to plant a reminder seed in the heart of these young ones while awakening the call for “Safety First” through the use of reusable face masks and alcohol base hand sensitizer.
IOWA foundation made her first visit to Estate secondary school, Oshodi at about 12:30pm then to Agbayewa memorial college, Olusoji Idowu sequentially. Before the distribution of the safety materials, the program coordinator, Esther Onyilo, introduced the Managing director, Mrs. Agatha Amata, to give a brief talk to the students. Part of her talk encouraged the students to embrace safety as they write their exams and to ensure the wash their face mask after each use. Thereafter, the safety materials were distributed to the students and a general photographer to officially end the event.
About an hour, we were done with the exercise. The outreach was brought to an official end as volunteers from IOWA Foundation commute back to RAVE TV office at Illupeju for other briefings.
