Summary

EDUCARE TRUST NIGERIA is directly involved in raising awareness of, talking and acting on the huge problems of neglect in education, health and democracy, the lack of direction of the youth and leading the way to solve some of these problems through Policy Advocacies, Influences and Direct Interventions at school and university level as well as in some benefitting communities through Community Development Projects, Research, Monitoring and Evaluation. Educare Trust has since become the wicker basket placed in the rushing river of aimless youth and used to catch a few fish for their own nourishment for the present and the future battles of life. Since inception, it has had a modest impact in reminding citizens of their responsibility in Education, Health and Democracy. It has also directly entered into over 1000 schools, Universities and Polytechnics, impacting on millions of youth in and out of formal school, to improve the physical structure, organize competitive educational activities, improve sport activities and improve standard of the learning environment through wall charts, posters, books etc.

EDUCARE TRUST NIGERIA has produced position papers to assist the Government, parents and teachers of children and offered cheap and effective ways of rescuing our deplorable Educational, Health and Democratic systems. The Educare Trust Youth Centre which hosts numerous leadership and edutainment activities and is a audio-visual wonderland and a beehive of youth-based and youth driven and targeted creative activities visited by many hundreds of thousands of youth and with a computer appreciation course from which over 5,000 youth have graduated. Other projects and programmes undertaken by the Trust include Health Related Areas such as Anti-Smoking Campaign, HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control and Anti-Breast Cancer Campaign. Others are Anti-Corruption Campaign, Good Governance and Democracy Projects, Environmental Education Campaign, Anti- Drug Abuse Programmes and Reading Culture Promotion. Educare Trust has produced a TV soap opera for the public, especially the youth covering Democracy and Good Governance and Moral Issues and also has social message television adverts watched by millions of people. Above all Educare Trust advocates volunteerism for the constructive use of time and provided avenues for the development of such volunteer spirit.

For these efforts, Educare Trust has been given due recognition by some reputable organisations. Since its inception in 1994, the Trust has won twenty awards for its contribution to the socio-cultural and economic development of the youth and received honourable mention by many in education and in the NGO community. This leads to many invitations to participate in local and international election observation missions, give key note addresses, present papers, speak and participate in conferences, workshops, committees and other public and private activities around the country and abroad.
