March Newsletter

Greetings to all our Members, Mentors and friends!

Sure this mail is reaching you in good time! Best Wishes. . .

You might want to know these facts:
  • Today marks the third week that Public School Teachers began the Nation wide strike and our students/Mentees are greatly affected!
  • WAEC/NECO exams start in less than 3months! - So close! Hence, we've got few weeks to help motivate, inspire, encourage and assist those young people. They really do need you badly. . . . . . . .And, you can never tell how far your timely assistance would do in touching and transforming their lives positively. A whole lot of them are like Pilgrims without Direction/Map to their final Destination.
  • We've got a group on Facebook where you could get more updates and information about RSN. http://www.facebook.com/s.php?q=youths+mentoring+youths&init=q&sid=319a680dd07ec81e616b0d56135b6896#/group.php?sid=319a680dd07ec81e616b0d56135b6896&gid=52392858864
  • Someone "unknown" has volunteered to help tutor these youths every Saturday. He commenced last week Saturday, 7th of March, 2009. Presently, not all the student are aware of this arrangement, hence, we would appreciate it if you could pass on this informaion to your respective Mentees.
  • We've got some new Members, Join us as we welcome the following Mentors into our Mentoring Team!! They are:
    Adeteju Ajimotokan -Legal Practitioner
    Nkechi "Kiki" Damsel -Legal Practitioner
    Chinedu Obi -Banker
  • Other suggested ways of communicating with your Mentees are e-mailing, texting, phone calls, visitation etc. And you might want to utilise this period of strike to effectively engage them in assignments, activities to improve their academic skills etc.
  • Our target grade expected from the Mentee is at least a WAEC result of 5 As and 3 Cs. Sure this isn't too much to ask for!!! As this would qualify them for the CTY Awards 2009! which comes up in December, 2009 by His grace!
  • For further Enquires, pls do not hesitate contact us on info@rsnnigeria.org or mentor@rsnnigeria.org


Once again, Thank You so much for your act of Volunteerism, It's greatly appreciated!

She was only 7+years old.
She fell ill 2weeks ago.
Maybe, for lack of hospital in the community.
Maybe, for lack of adequate knowledge.
The parent resolved into spiritual intervention.
It must be a spiritual attack.
Mary couldn't move again.
Yesterday, Mary died in the church.
Where her parent had taken her to.
Today, I crrrriiieeed. Still tear-dropping.
I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.

Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…

Thank You.
