KPV Youth Mentoring Seminar
Through the “Knowledge plus Values” seminar, PSM engages youth who are at-risk of involving in bad behavior, in mentoring sessions provided by skilled personnel and role models.
Through our mentoring seminars dubbed “Knowledge Plus Values”, we reach the young boys and girls in time to prevent their involvement in anti-social activities and admonish them to focus. We encourage them to desire and pursue higher education.
It is also mainly to inspire the students to believe in the possibility of their dreams and inform them of values needed to shape their future.
Beginning this year, PSM in collaboration with Integrated School of Design trained approximately 100 young females between 17 – 24 years in décor.
The 3 months training period, which began in February 2016, will end in April, 2016.
The next badge of training begins in September.
They received certification in interior décor
We engage in charity events on special days such as Easter and Christmas holidays to reach out and create fun activities for teenage street vendors in urban markets centers under the “Operation Feed A Soul” campaign.
We sponsor education of needy young girls and provide assistance to the vulnerable in society.
Operation Feed A Soul
Over the past three years, PSM organizes party for teenage street vendors, those who sell in the markets and on the streets in the Okaikwe District during Easter. These children are mostly below 18 years.
- The Easter party is to provide a source of refreshment and entertainment to the children who mostly spend their Easter holidays working or selling in the market.
- The party also serves as an opportunity to collect data on the number of these children who attend school.
The party is held near venues close to the Market while others join later as they round up hawking activity for the day.
Some of the children selling with guardians or parents are unable to attend the party therefore the team delivers food and drinks to them at the market.
