In a chat with our reporter, Ebifanimi Okara, Chief Executive Officer of EbioksCare Outreach averred that “just after my father’s funeral in 2012, I saw a group of teenagers messing up and as if it was a vision, I saw the need to speak.
“There it goes, years later this was formed.”
She revealed that a mindset coach taught them how the mind works and the advantages of possessing a positive attitude.
“A tech expert taught on the right use of phones and what the android or apple phones can do for us.
“A project coordinator and developer taught on how to source for information and the possible impact if we do.
“This year’s edition started with scrabble and chess training for weeks. On the day 1 which was the day of the tournament, winners were given cash prizes and awarded certificates.
“While in skill learning, students made liquid soap and toilet wash. Went home with liters of it.”
Okara stated that in the first two editions, teenagers benefited from the distribution of sanitary pads, and writing materials “but this year’s edition was strictly for my former secondary school (Nembe National Grammar School).”
Mangrovepen.ng gathered that the first edition which was tagged ‘Let’s Discuss Rape, Depression and the Healing Process’ had doctors and lawyers to educate the participants. Books and other items were also distributed.
The second edition tagged ‘Menstrual Hygiene and Drug Abuse’ saw the distribution of 2000 sanitary pads and 400 shaving stick packs.
