Omobola Johnson; senior officials from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC); sectoral Ministries and other government agencies; industry representatives; leading Nigerian academics and researchers; civil society organizations; and members of the media.

The volunteers would be helping with event registration and other logistical tasks throughout the day. They are happy to reimburse for travel costs and there will be breakfast and lunch. Report time: 7:30am

Openings at CCSF Abuja


Chika Chukwumerije Sport Foundation (CCSF) is an Abuja-based NGO that uses sports as a tool of development to empower individuals.

They would be needing  volunteers to help out with their 2nd International Taekwondo Opens which aims to feature dignitaries from around West Africa.

Meetings will be held on 15th & 16th October 2013. Venue is the Korean Cultural Centre on the 15th of October 2013, and Sheraton Abuja Hotel on the 16th of October 2013.


1. NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY: The quality of participation is across 8 countries, 24 Nigerian States, and other key institutions like the Nigeria Police, and Paramilitary Units [Immigrations, Customs and NSCDC]. With a rich diversity of Nigerian and West African community coming, this is a great way to make new friends and explore fresh opportunities.
2. BE PART OF RIO 2016 OLYMPIC DISCOVERY: They were both discovered through CCSF events like this. We expect to unearth more talented youngsters for the 2016 Global event. By volunteering this event, your contributions would help streamline activities that would make our discovery hunt more successful.
3. MEETING BUDDING AND NATIONAL SPORTING STARS: Taekwondo might not be football, but it certainly has its share of colourful, interesting and enigmatic budding stars. You might never know who you take a picture with that would be future Olympic Gold Medallist or World Champion.
4. HAVE FUN: Abuja has already thrown everything that it has in terms of fun and entertainment. Even though, these activities still keep us entertainment, an event like this could bring a fresh lease of energy to our interest levels, and provide just the difference we all look for sometimes.

VSO-ICS Youth Volunteering Programme

VSO-ICS Youth Volunteering Programme is a youth-centred community development programme, conducted in partnership between International Citizen Service (ICS), Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) and their implementing partners.

The three-month programme brings together young people (aged 18-25) from the UK and Nigeria. Each team will typically consist of 20 young people, with equal numbers coming from the UK and the host country. In carefully selected communities, volunteers work in placements fully supported by their implementing partner organisations and two full time VSO ICS programme supervisors. Together, in cross-cultural counterpart pairs, volunteers live with host families and work in the host communities. The type of work varies depending upon the needs of the community, but can include service delivery, advocacy work, and peer-to-peer education programmes. Through a programme of structured personal development and learning, ICS aims to create a cadre of young people who will make lifelong contributions as advocates for international development and as agents of social change within their own communities.

Completed forms should be returned to the VSO-ICS Team at

No 14B, Banjul Street, Off Monrovia Street, Wuse 2, Abuja
