NGOP0032-Interview with Temi Oduride (Hope Spring Water)
There are many reasons why poverty has become an epidemic in Africa. Poverty can be the result of political instability, ethnic conflicts, climate change and other man-made causes. But one of the greatest causes of poverty in Africa is also the most overlooked…the lack of access to clean drinking water. Nearly one billion people do not have access to clean, safe water – that’s the equivalent of 1 in 8 people on the planet! For these people, poverty is a fact of life. In Nigerian, Over 60million people which makes about 31 per cent of the population do not have access to clean drinking water and about 112.7 million which makes about 69 per cent of the population do not have basic access to sanitation. With this alarming rate of water poverty in Nigeria, Organizations like WaterAid, Hope spring water charity foundation, just to mention a few are doing their best to reduce the water poverty rate in Nigeria. Despite what they do, It is crucial to understand that everyone has a role to play in alleviating water poverty in Nigeria. All hand must be on deck! Yes, I and you must do something.

NGOP0030-Interview with Oluwatobiloba Ajibade (Priceless Virtues International)
It is always important to remember that girls are still faced with many challenges related to gender. They are often subjected to rigid outdated practices, such as child marriage. Girls who marry before age 18 are often denied access to education and are vulnerable to violence from their husbands. According to a UNESCO report in 2013, 31 million girls of primary school age were not in school and about one out every four girls in developing countries did not complete their primary school education. These statistics are staggering and they are not just mere numbers. They represent a pool of untapped girl power and potential. They represent what the state of our community would look like in years to come. In my country, Nigeria, girls’ education is improving but it remains a challenge due to number of factors. Early pregnancy, gender-based violence and child marriage continue to increase the rate at which girls’ dropout of school. 30% of the girls in Nigeria often get married as early as age 15-19. This, coupled with other pressing factors, prevents many girls from getting an education in Nigeria. The challenges girls face are disturbing and need longstanding solution. It is crucial to know that education for a fundamental right for every girl child. So, what can you do to help girls in your community develop the courage, confidence and character they need to be tomorrow’s leaders? What can you do to save their RIGHT to education from being trampled upon? These coupled with many questions would be answered on this episode! On this episode, I would be discussing with Oluwatobiloba Ajibade, the executive director of Priceless Virtues international on importance of girls’ education and what her organization is doing to harness the potentials and strength of the girl-child through education for individual and societal impacts.

NGOP0029-INTERVIEW WITH CRYSTAL CHIGBU (THE IREDE FOUNDATION)
In growing children, limb deformities of the legs, including bow legs and knock knees, are among the most frequent causes for a visit to the paediatric orthopedist. In many cases, the deformity corrects naturally. However, in those cases where the condition persists or the abnormality becomes more pronounced, medical attention is required. In Nigeria, many children stay Out Of School Because They Are LIMBLESS. Many of these children and their families face different challenges daily; ranging from the society stigma, the perspective of people towards them etcetera, which sometimes leads to low self esteem and suicide. Hence, there is a need for encouragement and a support system to keep people with limb deformities moving. With me on this episode is Crystal Chigbu, the Executive director of The Irede Foundation, a non-governmental organization that is dedicated to saving lives of children living with limb loss in Nigeria as well as being a support system for them.

NGOP0028-INTERVIEW WITH CHIKE IBEZIM (MILVISION FOUNDATION)
One in every five of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria. Even though primary education is officially free and compulsory, about 10.5 million of the country’s children aged 5-14 years are still not in school. Only 61 percent of 6-11 year-olds regularly attend primary school and only 35.6 percent of children aged 36-59 months receive early childhood education. In the northern of the country, the picture is even bleaker, with a net attendance rate of 53 percent. Getting out-of-school children back to school poses a massive challenge. We read in the newspaper, we listen in the news different figures about the total number of out of school children in Nigeria, – figures like, 10.2million, 13.5million, over 10million and lots more. What baffles me is, Instead of amplifying the figures, what are actually doing to reduce the alarming figures. Not waiting for the government but we as individuals, what are we doing to reduce the number. Have you ever thought of sending that little boy or little girl roaming about in your environment back to school? Have you ever questioned that boy hawking on the street during the school hour why he is not in school? These are questions we as an individual, have to answer. With questions me and you as an individual has to answer regarding out of school children in Nigeria, Don’t be surprised there are some people answering the questions and proffering solutions in their own little way. With me on this episode is Chike Ibezim the founder of Mil Vision Foundation, an organization whose goal is to send out of school children in Nigeria back to school.

NGOP0026-INTERVIEW WITH EREZI EDOREH (SPELL AFRICA INITIATIVE)
With 65 million Nigerians illiterate, it is time for government, schools and individuals to take action. In 2015, the results of a UNESCO survey was released which showed that despite improvements to the country’s education system, yet 65 million Nigerians remain illiterate. This statistic is alarming for a number of reasons. As a matter of fact, Illiteracy has adverse impacts at both an individual and societal level. People who are illiterate are far more likely to live in poverty, facing a lifetime marred by poor health and social vulnerability. Economically, the impacts of illiteracy can never be overemphasize; workplace productivity, unemployment rates and even national GDP are all affected by a country’s literacy levels. With the alarming number of illiterate youths and adults in Nigeria, a Volunteer project of SPELLAFRICA Initiative – B2S Adult Literacy has took up the responsibility to transform for free, the lives of over 65 million adults in Nigeria to read & write out of extreme poverty. Since its inception in 2016, the organization has transformed the lives of over 200 youths and adults to read and write, and still counting. We visited the SpellAfrica B2S Adult Literacy center in Lagos state, Nigeria to witness what they’ve been doing over the years. We spoke with Mr Erezi Edoreh, the Director of SPELL AFRICA INITIATIVE and the highly esteemed volunteer teachers at the literacy center that are working ceaselessly to transform the lives of illiterate youths and adults in Nigeria.
