Dear Active Citizens,
Greetings to you from the ancient city of Ile – Ife, the host city to the World’s famous Africa’s most beautiful Campus.
As I humbly bow out from the position of the “Chief Servant Officer” of the Golden L.O (JCIN OAU), I present to you a brief stewardship report of an eventful L.O year.
THEME: Building on our values, standard and maintaining our Pride.
Below are the impactful events we have done according to their timelines
**MAY 2015**Educate a Child: We ensured the continuation of the long existing educate-a-child program, where a child is being sponsored right from her primary education level and currently in a university. The payment of the beneficiary’s tuition and accommodation fee was made and it was considered a task of priority.
**June 27, 2015**Officer Training School: The officers’ training school was organised to sharpen the leadership qualities, skills and tendencies of the Board of Directors.

**Sept 4, 2015**Recruitment and Induction: As with every other organization, the heart and drive of every organization is its membership strength. To ensure continuity and sustainability, About 140 forms were sold and 82 people were inducted fully into the organization after passing all the necessary screening test and interview.
**Dec 3, 2015**Vocational Training and Skills Acquisition: The chapter organized a vocational training for about 250 public Senior Secondary Students.
They were empowered with the knowledge of *Liquid Soap making **Ankara crafts and **Beads making.
This we believe will help to spur their interest in entrepreneurship as the skills will be useful both in short and long terms aims.
**Feb 14, 2016**Water Project Commissioning: The water project tagged “Better life with water" was commissioned in Agbogbo community. A host community to OAU with no means of good road to the community making it difficult to access, no means of electricity and no clean water both drinking and other domestic use.
A modernized well was provided for the community for a clean and easily accessible water.
It was commissioned by the organization’s International Vice President (Riyad Subratty) also in attendance, the JCI Nigeria National President(Tunji Oyeyemi) and another International Vice president (Seun Osikalu).
