Catch Them Young Programme
- Sex Education, under The Humanitarian Sex Education Department (HUMSED),
- Education on Dangers of Drug Abuse and Violence among Youth, under The Humanitarian Department for Youth Violence and Drug Abuse (HUMDYVADA).
To expantiate, education is vital in the development of a nation. The deteriorating state of our nation’s educational system prompted this hunger to assist the government bridge some gap in the society through humanitarian activities for this is a collective responsibility. Most school-able children and young adults have lost the desire to study due to they lack these fundamental information (knowledge) delivered to them adequately from childhood.
This is not the only reason, what they hear and see from the outside-world through their elders or superiors in life discouraged most of them completely. But, consistent preaching of these issues of life and the application of the next product of The Humanitarian Foundation will definitely give both the younger ones and their respective unemployed or unhappy adults hope for a brighter tomorrow.
The axiom, “Catch Them Young”, expresses the desire to train, cater, support and guide children early in life to develop love for education in order to become lifelong learners and national builders. This, we supposed should be the primary concern of parents, institutions, communities and great individuals with big heart as these children will be the leaders of tomorrow whose leadership will base on today’s legacy.
Every problem has both primary and secondary solutions. The problem under discussion is not in exception. The primary solution to this very problem is the early and in-depth theoretical couching. Here, we prepare the mind of the pupils and students in order to help them assimilate faster with eagerness the practical aspect – (basic) Skill Acquisition Programs which is the secondary solution.
To the pupils, we give them a clinical package involving shoe/bag making, knitting (a method by which yarn is manipulated to create a textile or fabric), barbing/hair dressing, fashion designing, Art and signs, horticulture and floriculture and so on. All these are at the introductory level.
To the students (in secondary or high school), we have decided to continue with the courses from the primary school with little add-ons in the areas of farming, poultry, introduction to civil engineering/bricklaying, carpentry/furniture making, general computer/auto engineering program and so on. At this juncture, we treat them like (future) professionals by ensuring they do more practical work. The overall aim is to ensure these students are capable of being resourceful and (partially) dependent (while under their parental/guardian control) and help close some gap of mental laziness and after school unemployment that has ravaged most African (and world) economies. It is a known fact that; “a mentally lazy person cannot be resourceful in life!”
Finally, note that acquiring these skills (early in life) does not necessarily mean they would not study their (unspecified and respective) areas of interest in higher institutions. Instead, it will be a support for smooth ride through school and give them solid foundation in life after school.
The Quarterly Schools/Religious Organizations Seminar/Training
Each Quarter, both HUMSED and HUMDYVADA visit Schools, colleges and religious organizations with a well-organized Seminar/Training to ensure pupils and students get trained on the fundamental knowledge that will guide them through life and help the society at large breed national builders and not the antithesis. Here, both units ensure they deliver appropriately and effectively the products assigned to their unit.
Our team of experts move from school-to-school, and religious organizations educating the focus population and ensure their active participation in the program. Our team is a group of well trained professionals and specialists in functional areas of the foundation. These experts are always ready to deliver whenever called upon. Any civil or otherwise case found would be reported to the appropriate agency or treated accordingly.
