FIDA Eket Commemorates International Day of the Boy Child
In commemoration of the International Day of the Boy child, FIDA Eket on the 16th of May 2022 took her Advocacy to two Secondary Schools in Eket Local Government Area. St Francis Secondary School Ikot Ataku and Government Secondary School Afaha Eket were beneficiaries and focus was on the boys in SS1- SS3
The Boys were sensitized on this year’s theme Boosting Optimism, Restoring self-worth.
The celebration of the International Day of the Boy Child is not to remove focus from the girl child but to groom, nurture and mentor the boys to become better brothers, fathers, and husbands in the future.
The boy child must learn self-worth, to love and believe in themselves, and with focus and determination they can achieve their future goals.
The Speakers Yinka Gbadamosi Esq. and Soporochukwu Esq. Spoke extensively on the need for the boys to shun cultism, drug abuse, and all forms of negative vices that can deter them from achieving their goals.
The chairperson of FIDA Eket Mojisola Tijani Esq while speaking to the boys urged them to be optimistic, believe in themselves, and maintain a positive mindset in order to grow into responsible adults.
The principals of both Schools were extremely grateful and commended the effort of FIDA NIGERIA EKET BRANCH stating that the visit was a timely intervention and encouraged us to keep on with the mentorship program.
It was truly a successful program because at the end of the session, the boys looked happy and felt loved especially when they received their gifts.
