Lema Plan International Foundation on the 3rd of December 2020, conducted an educational outreach which took place at Comprehensive Secondary School, Mbeke in Isiala Mbano, Imo State.
The theme of the program was “End School Violence; Be an Outstanding Student.”
It is no longer news that violence has done a lot of harm to the academic activities in these schools.
Some of these violent behaviors/activities include:
* Drink Alcohol and hard drugs
LPI took the initiative to educate the students of the dangers of carrying out such illicit activities and key ways to avoid such activities.
The second part of the lecture was on how students can be outstanding in their academic pursuits. Education is an essential tool in beating poverty as it helps to direct and enhance development for every individual. The students were taught how to be more than just a student, as they were enlightened on how they can make better choices in choosing their career part. This part of the lecture featured an amazing writer Goodness Mbaogu who wrote a book on “More Than Just A Student.” As free copies of the book were given out to some outstanding students and copies were also donated to the school library in other for students to have access to it.
