Dear great Nigerian members,
I hope that you are doing well. You may recall that we just ended CLCWA
Nigeria project in April, 2008. And we know that questions that might arise is;
what was the accomplishment and where was the programme implemented in Nigeria.
Please for your perusal, take your time to look at that activity chat here.
Some of the programme reports could also be access
http://www.flickr.com/photos/27301259 (at) N06/.
For those of us that participated in one way or the other, we want to use this
medium to appreciate all your supports, advice, critics e.t.c . All of your
suggestions made us to be strong and to stay focused. And to crown it all; we
came out top among all the countries that implemented CLCWA. We are very proud
to be Nigerians. Sir Winston Churchill said that Success is never final.
Failure is never fatal. It is courage that counts". We are not going to
stop there. We must move on and see how we could consolidate on this great
Many of us dont know what TakingITGlobal has been doing across the
globe. Most young people normally forget about takingitglobal.org after
signing up as members. TakingITGlobal is not only using ICTs to provide
inspiration and information to young people, they're as well implementing
offline project across the globe. TakingITGlobal has implemented successfully
Creating Local Connection projects in Russia and Canada, and presently
concluded CLCWA in 5 West African countries of which Nigeria.
We should all remember that The future belongs to those who believe in the
beauty of their dreams. We must believe in our potentials that with
togetherness and team work the future is very bright.
We should not wait for TakingITGlobal to provide external support at all
times. What we should be doing now is to adopt the CLCWA curriculums in our
different organizations, if actually were a training organization. The
project has actually made a desirable impact in the life of young Nigerians.
Our trainers across the country will bear witness to this.
Our dream and our vision are to ensure that learning needs of all young
people are met through equitable access to appropriate ICT tools and life
skills programmes. Knowledge is a pre-requisite for self-determined action and
participation. Children and young people need a range of knowledge and skills
to cope in an increasingly diverse world. Engaging young peoples participation
constructively in policy-making and decision-making at all levels will
contribute to the achievement of the MDGs.
Right now, we need your ideas and support on how to continue with this
project, as we 're waiting for the 2nd phase which might depend if external
funding is available.In ideal situation, we should commenced that 2nd phase
our own with our existing organisations or networks. We have concluded with
the pilot phase of this project which happens to be a testing/learning ground
for both the project and the implementers. Most of us have contacts with people
in government and private sector. Our advice is for you to propose this ICT
training to them. If you need a PROPOSAL TEMPLATE, I will send it to you. MTN
foundation has facilities across Nigeria called MTN Connect, but most schools
are not making good use of them. This is an opportunity for you to propose
training and maintenance of the facilities on behalf of the schools involve and
see how you could be using their facilities at no cost. We have our trainers
over Nigeria; in case you need them to visit your
area. Please talk to us, so that we plan with you on how to make this happen.
If you also need a Training of Trainers course for Local government officials,
NGO workers, Church members, Youth in your communities. Lets work to make it
happen. Imagine you could propose this ICT training to your political
representative, and here you go..... You will get some share from the
constituency allowance. National youth Council members (NYCN), this project is
for you since you have ICT component in your action plan for 2008. You could
also propose the training of all the state executives with CLCWA curriculum.
Or by organizing a Training of Trainers (ToT) for the state executives, they
will later step it down for other youth to benefit.
Our youth needs this empowerment, and we the elite must work to ensure that we
provide an enabling environment for the future of our youth. Many of
life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to
success when they gave up We will never give up.
In conclusion, please those that benefited from the last ToT in Kano; I need to
know your present plans and where you're at. I am proud of some few of you
who have started something already.
Let me know if you have any question or comment on this. I will be glad you
