Cares Global Network has been working with young people since 1997. Upon registering the organisation in 2001, we expanded our scope to include 12 projects carried out annually. For better efficiency we recently narrowed down to 4 major areas under which we have continued to share cares and inspire excellence.
It’s 2014 and we have an amazing plan for our stakeholders:
As part of Cares Leadership Academy for Youth (CLAY) we will continue to mentor and develop the personality of the young people who work with us or who are referred to us on a one on one basis. Wondering how our mentors turn out check out the following names and return to give feedback – Monininuola Sonde, Dayo Israel, Leke Aladekoba, Isabella Ibiam, Olamide Olabisi, Gboyega Ahove, Olaitan Boboye, Treasure Obasi to mention a few. We are proud of what we do but that’s just because it’s God leading us to inspire them to excel. Our Children Career Conference “Inspire to Excel” will be coming up in Abuja on the 23rd of May 2014. Follow us here or on Facebook to know where. Speakers will include Chief (Mrs.) Funmi Awomolo, SAN and Pastor (Mrs.) Funmi Adesegun Deputy Governor, Ogun State. Interested schools, students and sponsors should contact willows firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon registration in the USA, the conference would be organised in high schools beginning with schools in New Jersey.
Are you young? Are you interested in social development? Would you like to partner with us? If your answer is yes to the 3 questions, come on board to dive the Cares Club initiative. You will coordinate students to participate in TTRIPPS (training in television, radio, internet, print, photography and speaking. You will join the students on their fun trips to relevant media stations as part of the training). If you are not interested in trips, you can coordinate our Vacation Bible School (organised in collaboration with schools and churches) or WRITE Contest. Best volunteers will receive awards.
Just as we did last year we would have the Student Education Tour. We are heading to the USA in August with adults and students who have demonstrated leadership qualities. They would have the privilege of sharing and learning outside Nigeria. Once we gain the trust of schools in the USA, we would also be able to bring students in the USA to Nigeria for the same educational exchange purpose.
As a way of giving back, CGN has a number of initiatives up our sleeves under Ibiyemi Fund for Empowerment formerly ACE 4.0 Project. What better way to show love than to raise and give gifts to those who need them most. IFE Cash Award of N25, 000 each will go to 4 indigent students as a love gift. This gift can be used towards exam fees, tuition, books or other educational needs. ACET (ACE Training) valued at N25, 000 would be offered to 4 selected groups. Feel free to send in your nomination. Out there are many who have the Heart of Gold through the philanthropic and life changing endeavours they carry out. We would recognise 4 of such “secret divine helpers” and celebrate them in the most unusual way. 4 homes would be given ACES (ACE Support) N25, 000. It’s time to nominate HOMES yo believe need this love offering.
As a way to bless the Christian Community, Divine Connection will work with 7 churches to host Harvest Of Marriages Empowerment Summit (HOMES) and Graceful Women Conference in Nigeria and the USA respectively.
To support what we do, consider sending your donation or ordering copies of our books and magazines.
We need you to share cares and inspire excellence as we continue to touch those in our area of influence.
