KOM is here again! Volunteers needed

The Kick out Malaria (KOM) is a signature program of The Iba – Malaria Eradication Foundation and is designed to commemorate the annual UN World Malaria Day. Since 2002, the project has reached hundreds of thousands of people and has been implemented in 5 communities in Lagos State. It has been sponsored by Exxon Mobil, Red Cross Society, Lagos State Ministries of Health and Environment, The Nation Newspaper etc. The program has also won local and international awards such as the National Youth Service Corps Awards, SET Africa Awards, and the Commonwealth Youth Awards (African Section). It has been attended by the US Consul General, Mr. Jeffery Hawkins and will be attended by members of the German community this year. The project involves distribution of Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Nets, Environmental Clean Up Exercise, distribution of anti-malarial drugs, education of community members and/or installation of waste bins.

This year’s program will hold at Abule Oja, Yaba on April 25th. It will start by 7am (because of environmental sanitation exercise) and will end by 2noon.

 

Volunteers are needed to participate in all the stages of the exercise. There will be a prior meeting to talk about duties in details. Capable people passionate about community development work who can be committed are needed.

Openings at UKF!

United for Kids Foundation is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in the USA, Nigeria and the United Kingdom established exclusively for charitable and educational activities targeted principally at needy children in Nigeria. They have reached more than 40,000 children with programs like the annual ‘Back to School’ project and free libraries in 9 public schools within Lagos since 2002

They need volunteers to commit 30 hours each week working with children from low income families in Lagos public primary schools. Volunteers will be assigned to their libraries at Ojodu, Somolu or Victoria Island. Library hours will be from 8am to 2pm on Mondays to Thursday while Fridays will be for debriefing and professional development.

 

The volunteers will work with their staff to implement literacy programs in the libraries. They will read to and with the children during library periods. They will watch educational programs with the children and explain content to them. The volunteers will also lead various projects such as tie and dye, planting, coloring and painting. They will accompany pupils to field trips, which include movie theaters, banks, museums, manufacturing companies and other major establishments during the annual summer camp. Volunteers will act as first line mentors to children, many of whom are from socially and economically disadvantaged homes. Volunteers at our Victoria Island library will work with mentors from major corporations once a week to implement a special reading program using eReaders (kindles).

 

REQUIRED ABILITIES

Volunteers should be university or polytechnic graduates with excellent oral and written communication skills. We are looking for people with good attitude who are willing to invest their time in helping economically disadvantaged children.
