#SHIPAfrica Africa and the Girl (International Day of the Girl Child)

In many African communities, girls are still not considered children. They do not need to be sent to school, they have no inheritance and sometimes their mother is sent away for not being able to bear a male child. As if boys are better. Words will fail me to recount all the episodes we have had, for being just girls, at the time.

Empower girls, empower women, educate communities!

#SHIPAfrica Celebrates the International Day of the Girl Child

Empowering women is not about feminism, it’s about humanity.

Let the little girl know, access to information, education and laws that protect women should be promoted.

What are you doing about it?

#SHIPCampaign #SheHasImmensePotential

#SHIPAfrica Mentorship Sessions are at Hand

African students gave us their best, now we are giving them our best. The mentorship program of the #SHIPCampaign seeks to link our top 5 winners with very established and prominent professionals in Nigeria/Africa to enable a mentor-protege relationship for growth and personal development, especially career-wise.

To be part of it please look out cos in February 2018, the scholarships will rollout again

Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you winners, thank you judges, thank you mentors πŸ™‚

ASK “WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?” not “WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?”

 

 

Fear and Pride both go before a fall, be understanding and patient enough to tell the difference.Β People rashly mistake FEAR 4 PRIDE. Someone who walks away or refuses to show up to have his work analysed or criticized would easily be mistaken for being proud. Many times too when you delay an apology, people conclude that you are proud, when in fact you’re scared of being rejected.

A lot more thought should go into our human relationships, people are not simple, babies are. Life makes us complex so be more curious about why people act the way they do. To lead, mentor, be a good parent, guardian or just friend, you should try to use the other perspective. Although some reactions are pretty obvious, even anger can be an expression of fear! relax…take it easy πŸ™‚

Let’s chat…You, Me, And a Camera!

Our first interview is at 1:30pm with the top video entry, but let’s see.

And congratulations to our finalists, although they may never see this blog..hehehe

 

NEVER SAY NEVER 😈

Alright, have a lovely day.

SAVE FOOD, SELL BRAINS!!!

One of the ways Nigeria can stay ahead or keep pace with Energy and I.T innovations around the world, is by maximising the time and potentials of our youths.

Our young ones and students are very innovative, industrious, quick to learn. They just need an opportunity, someone to believe in them and send them to a place where they can develop their skills and interests.

They can go from repairing TVs and computers and cars to building our own, they are all around computer village, selling bootleg softwares or downloads, stealing machine parts or selling just about anything on the streets.

This energy and passion can be channelled to mind-blowing Energy, I.T and other innovative projects. WE ARE WASTING THEIR YEARS. We encourage our own backwardness, youth frustration and eventually, crimes.

When will the first Nigerian or African car be built, or computers not just assembled here, but made here. Keep the African Child’s passion alive. SSCE, JAMB, Post UME, they’re just too much. Two JAMBs by one smart student can translate to 50 years of backwardness for the continent.

We never know, who that one giant is, so let’s rescue as many as we can. The school is not the place where you gain knowledge, there is currently knowledge everywhere. But the school helps you think critically and encourage never-before-seen modes of thinking and creativity. So we should also save the system from traditions and old methods or do or die answers to questions by old teachers and professors who fail to evolve with their profession. Or the ones who send students out of the class for asking too many challenging questions.

Questions lead to research and discovery, young minds are curious. This is our chance.

EXPORTS CAN EXCEED IMPORT, WE HAVE SO MUCH MORE WE SHOULD BE SELLING TO THE WORLD.

KEEP THE CONTINENT IN MIND. TIME IS PRECIOUS. HEAL THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM, HEAL THE ECONOMY!

GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS
