Rose of Sharon Foundation Launches School Engagement Program to Empower Educators and Support Traumatized Children

Lagos, Nigeria; June 20, 2023.

The Rose of Sharon Foundation (RoSF), a non-profit and faith-based organization dedicated to alleviating the burdens faced by widows and orphans, has launched a new initiative called the School Engagement Program (SEP). This program is aimed at school administrators and teachers to enhance their capacity in performance measurement and psychosocial support for traumatized children.

Speaking about the initiative, the Founder of the Rose of Sharon Foundation, Apostle Folorunso Alakija, stated that the program was conceived to improve the quality of education and enhance the academic performance of traumatized children who have experienced the loss of their parents. Apostle Alakija emphasized that the capacity-building opportunity would be delivered through a practical, hands-on approach to learning.

During the recent pilot training session held in Lagos, Dr. Ndudi Bowei, the Country Manager of the Rose of Sharon Foundation, explained that the program is open to teachers and administrators in both primary and secondary schools. It has been designed to enhance the quality of teaching and learning for orphans and children of widows. Dr. Bowei highlighted that the program is part of a series of initiatives outlined by the Foundation to improve the well-being of disadvantaged children in the society. She stressed that the program aims to provide psychosocial support for traumatized children and improve their academic performance, as well as their interpersonal relationships.

Mrs. Anna Bamaiyi, a retired director at the Federal Ministry of Education with 35 years of experience in public and private sector education, was one of the facilitators at the training session. As a board member of the Rose of Sharon Foundation, she commended the foundation’s commitment to the educational upliftment of orphans and children of widows in Nigeria. Mrs. Bamaiyi conducted sessions on Education Quality Assurance and Whole School Evaluation Strategy. Additionally, Dr. Ada C. Nwagwu, a Guidance Counselor who also serves as the Sub Dean of the School of Technical Education at the Department of Educational Foundation in Yaba College of Technology, provided training on identifying and supporting traumatized children.

The training session also offered participants opportunities for collaboration and practice to apply the knowledge and skills they acquired.
