Weʼre raising funds for the new Uzommiri Study Centre
Uzommiri Study Centre is located in the heart of Enugu State close to the Enugu State University and the University of Nigeria, Enugu campus. The activities of the centre are for (but not only) undergraduates. The centre provides the beneficiaries with a balanced formation, in addition to their various fields of study in the University. The beneficiaries are mostly young girls between the ages of 8 to 25 years old. In some cases, young professionals who are at the early stages of developing their career are also beneficiaries. For each age group, the activities are organised to address their needs and to suit their interest.
Programmes for secondary school girls are organized in the form of a weekly club where the girls have a wide range of activities all geared towards helping them discover their talents as well as develop their character. These include guided study, seminars, cookery, etiquette, arts & crafts classes, rural development projects etc. There is also an annual holiday programme organized for the girls where they learn soft skills and home making tips. Part of the success is the fact that it collaborates with parents in their role as primary educators of their children to reinforce values fostered at home. There is also a mentoring scheme set up to guide the girls as they grow and take their own decisions.
