Movere as a movement to empower kids is still making serious moves in doing what we earlier promised. On 16TH MARCH 2018.
We visited Queens College Yaba Lagos. From our visit, we have discovered that most teenagers in our secondary schools are struggling with various kinds of pressure and addictions. Hence the movere_the movement is keen on rendering a helping hand to help teens out of the addictions.
We dealt on the following with the jss3 students:
- Peer pressure
- Suicidal ideation
The hall was full to capacity with students, the environment was conducive and the college students were receptive. Thanks to the school admin and the principal’s secretary. The presentation was about an hour, there were questions, interactive and one on one counseling session.
At the end of the session most of the girls were happy and gave us a standing ovation In the course of the counseling session a lot of girls revealed the addictions they struggling with and they resolved to change and how we can be of help by mentoring them. Issues like Sex abuse Lesbianism Peer pressure Suicidal thought (lack of love at home and in school) Bullying and lots more.
We recommended a follow up after we have completed the presentations with the other classes. We suggest a parent forum be held because most of these things happen at home and their parents are not aware. A lot of students asked for follow up and mentoring but we cannot do that without the consent of their parents. We want to thank the college principal for giving us access to the students.
God bless your kind heart for being a good mother.
