SCHOOL OUTREACH HEALTH PROGRAMME
The 12th of October, 2022 witnessed the continuation of our School Outreach Health Programme at Ansar-UD-Deen Comprehensive High School, Lafenwa, Ota, Ogun State Nigeria.
The continuation commenced with lectures and practical discussions on “Mental Health and Substance Abuse”
The purpose and objective of the first meeting with the young people which was to be a general introduction to the concept of Mental Health were greatly achieved after a short pretest was conducted for the students on the ground to assess their level of knowledge on the topic.
It was an interactive and engaging session with the young people. There was a question and answer session where students asked questions concerning things that were unclear to them based on what they have been taught.
We are happy and proud to say that the session that witnessed a total number of 29 young persons of JSS 1 – 3 was a successful one and we look forward to more of such engagements with the young people of Ota Public schools as the programme is set to continue next week, all other things being equal.
@ PAANEAH FOUNDATION, our mission is to catalyze, promote and support the development and well-being of young people, particularly the most vulnerable groups, to attain excellence in every dimension of life.
We are built on the philosophical foundation that, “Every young person is like a diamond…with appropriate touch, they can be transformed to show forth their true value and to shine, sparkle and dazzle.
