We also dive into the world of the Road Warriors, a not-for-profit organisation, made up of a close-knit group of people who love to run competitively and socially and one of our scholarship partners.

Students at FGC Ilorin Learn the Value of Teamwork

The third edition of the RETECH Foundation Paint Your School (PYS) initiative took place at Federal Government College Ilorin on the 13th of March 2021 in collaboration with FGC Ilorin’s Old Students Association.

50 Senior Secondary School 1 (SS1) students participated in this initiative and improved their learning environment by painting their classrooms. Teachers were also involved in the day’s activities and their participation helped us to instill the values of responsibility, hard work and teamwork in the students.

A total of 50 Senior Secondary School 1 (SS1) students of UDSS Benin participated in the PYS initiative. The students painted their classrooms under the supervision of a painting instructor and teachers of FGC Ilorin.

We presented Good Citizenship certificates to all 50 students for showing outstanding citizenship at the FGC Ilorin PYS initiative.

Celebrating World Book Day – Introducing Our First Book Club at FGGC Abuloma

The RETECH Foundation Book Club Initiative (RFBC) has been launched under our Good Citizenship Programme to improve the reading culture of secondary school pupils in Nigeria, to develop our human capital and in so doing reducing poverty and improving the socio-economic situation in the country.

In addition to supplying books, by setting up and keeping abreast with the activities of our club members we ensure that the learning experience is optimised after the books have been read.

Research has shown that reading develops a person in numerous ways including enhancing emotional intelligence, improving self-awareness, improving social skills and stimulating intelligence.

This is why we at RETECH Foundation are extremely excited about the formation of our first book club with these brilliant minds from FGGC Abuloma. We intend to set up more book clubs in public secondary schools across the Country.

We have set a target of sourcing books for our book clubs before the end of June 2021.
