Early Mothers Empowerment in Ede

There is a rising concern for the increase in the rate of early mothers in Ede community of Osun State. This increase has led to the proliferation of children whose fatherhood are denied, and whose destined are about being truncated if nothing words are offered. This is our drive in bringing hope to these teenagers and such early mothers who could not help themselves after the first unprepared for, and unplanned pregnacy. This intervention has been designed to span through three (3) stages. The first phase shall focus on psychosocial therapy sessions with seasoned social workers. This phase shall handle the re-orientation of their mindset which shall ultimately restructure their inferiority complexity, and support their future goal setting faculty. The second phase shall handle the raising of their hope to getting aligned to a career in life. The objective at this stage involves picking up this people from wherever their life got disrupted, and landing them at a juncture where they are able to make the choice of a life career. For some of them, the first step is the Adult Literacy Class where they are grounded on the concept of the 3Rs - Writing, Reading and Arithmetic; or broadly speaking taking them on Numeracy and Literacy. For some others, it has to do with brushing them up and preparing them for NECO, NABTEB, or WASSCE - such examinations that gets them crossing the Ordinary level scale of education. For another category of these early mothers, it would be sponsoring them for skill acquisition programmes (dressmaking, hair-making, shoemaking, etc.; or even sponsoring them for an NCE programme, or a degree programme, as the case may be). The third stage is building these people up to be able to draw up a personal business plan. From this point they could be linked up with the CBN-NIRSAL AGSMESIS funding programme, or related funding plans, from where they are set up with funds to acquire needed tools for their business lines.

Our Programme Areas

Education

Cleannation Foundation established Youth Educational Development Programmes) so as to encourage education and youth development in communities. Since there are restricted prospects and narrow choices in rural communities, youth and young people tend to become self-destruct leading a bleak future. In order to fight these difficulties, Youth Educational Development Program seeks to attend to educational development of youths and through increased sensitization and mobilization of young people, the youth are educated about their self-esteem, values, goals, environment and reproductive health.

Child Protection

Cleannation Foundation established with the purpose of informing and creating awareness on the rights of young and rural people since most of these people are not aware of their rights and are cheated of their right because they lack information on their rights and responsibilities from and to the government and in other segment of life.

Menstrual Hygiene

Menstrual Hygiene
MHM as fondly called is an initiative Cleannation Foundation got involved with in 2016 in the bid to support the girl-child to fulfilment. Menstruation is a naturally occurring physiological phenomenon in adolescent girls and pre-menopausal women. Menstrual Hygiene Management has been discussed as ‘Women and adolescent girls using a clean menstrual management material to absorb or collect blood that can be changed in privacy as often as necessary for the duration of the menstruation period, using soap and water for washing the body as required, and having access to facilities to dispose of used menstrual management materials’.
As it were, menstruation necessitates the availability of material resources to absorb or collect menstrual blood, facilitate personal hygiene and dispose of waste, ideally with adequate privacy. But we know the girl-child is suffering from the lack of these materials which has made many dropped-out of school, inconsistent in school, failed in school or discriminated against in school. In order to fight this malaise, Cleannation has:
  • Trained secondary school teachers from the 30 Local Government Areas of Osun State
  • Held seminars on menstruation hygiene management in religious and secular places
  • Celebrate the May 28th Menstrual Hygiene Day as observed globally
  • Trained girls on the process of making re-usable menstrual pads
  • Published variant posters on Menstruation and the girl-child

Sustainable Environment

Climate Change
Our world is increasingly collapsing under the weight of human errors of several activities – There are typhoons across the globe; flooding in places least expected in Nigeria, in North America; change in seasons and climates all over the world; greenhouse effect, burning of bushes, indiscriminate cutting of trees, careless generation of carbon footprints, and this list can be endless.
Cleannation is out to cause a change. We are out to challenge the manner in which the Earth is used. There is an abuse of course, and planet Earth is fighting back so hardly, in order as to maintain its own sanity and originality and purpose. Our mandate in this department include:
  • Tree planting Acts and Campaigns
  • Publishing Press Releases on the Earth and its use
  • Teaching Environmental sustainability approaches
  • Providing gas cookers to community most involved in harvesting trees for fuel
  • Re-orientating the society on pure energy

Health

Health
On the 17 Sustainable Development Goals is goal number 3 which is: Good Health and Well-being. Unfortunately, the third world countries in their developing crawls have experienced what it means to be sick without being well at all. Malaria has ravaged the terrain with very little help that is continually being sabotaged.
Cleannation has been involved in Malaria issues – distribution of nets, community sensitization on preventive malaria, Accountability and Transparency project. We are hoping to be more involved with the control and elimination of Hepatitis which is a close-killer to Malaria in Nigeria and Africa. We are also passionate about immunisations, starting from ante-natal immunisations to the several post-natal immunisations.

Education

Education
Quality Education is the 4th hub on the SDGs. Cleannation Foundation has been involved with the concept of quality education starting with the girl-child education and education of young people who could not attend the conventional school. In order to be able to do this effectively, we became a part of the network known as NOGALSS - Non-governmental Association for Literacy Support Services – https://nogalss.org; aside other groups such as CSACEFA - Civil Society Action Coalition on Education For All, Education for All (EFA), etc. We are working on advocacy for literacy among young people, which has made us join hands with the Malala Foundation – Malala.org

Child Protection

Child Protection
The child is most abused human in the world, followed by women, even by their own clan. Cases of abuse are all over the places most times, starting from home where the child is whipped and flogged or slapped, with a hard knock on his head, for every offence he is involved with, no matter how small.
Cleannation is a child advocating organisation. We support positive parenting. We support proactive parenting. We support emotionally intelligent parenting. We fight anything confronting the child anywhere on the Earth. This concept has led us into:
  • Parent-Child Case work
  • Parent-Parent Case work
  • Teacher-Pupil Casework
  • Child counselling
  • School Social work
  • Empowerment for mothers
  • Traffic in Persons
  • Children on the Move/IDPs

Empowerment

Empowerment
Empowering young people is one of our major and core mandates to support young people in developing countries. With this, they can believe in themselves and also give back to the world. There are a lot of out-of-school girls who are either pregnant or bearing a baby or two with no support from anywhere. This department sorts them into a craft that helps them to find their feet financially. Our focus divergent into four skills areas:
  • ICT - Information and communications technology
  • Dress-making
  • Beads-craft
  • Hair-dressing
