Looking Back and Moving Forward



Dear Friend,
 
Happy New Year!  We hope the holiday’s was a restful and fulfilling one for you and your family. As we start the year 2016, we wish to share some of our most motivating stories from the past year in our effort to serve humanity. We first want to say thank you to you on the very crucial role you played in ensuring the success of the previous year for JEOF.
 
In 2015, we made considerable impact to help more vulnerable people. Over 2,000 children, women, and men now have brighter futures and a reason to be hopeful, thanks to your generosity. Presently, we are working on our 2015 annual report and impact data, and we expect it to be very encouraging. We were blessed to have provided free healthcare, nutrition, sanitation, and hygiene solutions to the poor and under-served communities across Nigeria.
 
Free eye care to over 200 beneficiaries: In November and December respectively, we joined hands with generous donors to reach a disadvantaged community in Bariga, Lagos; providing free eye diagnosis, treatment, counseling, distribution of medicated glasses, eye drops, multivitamins and awareness to persons suffering from various eye impairments ranging from refractive error, glaucoma, cataract and other issues.

ASPIRE mentorship program for secondary school students: considering the very high rate of moral decadence among the youth of today, the Aspire mentorship program is helping to bridge the gap by providing sound moral principles, life skills, vocational skills and mentorship to students in public schools. 507 students of Wahab Folawiyo Senior High School benefited from the maiden edition of the program on September 22, 2015.
 
Provision of Hand washing facilities, water and toilets: to ensure that the risk of infection and diseases is reduced to the barest minimum, especially among children who are at the highest level of risk and in great need of these facilities, JEOF in partnership with Mobil Producing Unlimited provided a well equipped lavatory in Awoyaya Primary school, thus ensuring that over 400 children and teachers never have to stay away from school due to lack of a decent lavatory.
 
De-worming of children: More than 100 children were provided with multivitamins and de-worming drugs with the aim to  treat malnutrition. This was achived in partnership with Jawa Group and Annie Pharma Limited. We expect our reach in  2016 to be even higher for  children across Nigeria.  .
 
JEOF raised over NGN 6 million : despite the challenges faced in the 2015 economic year, the Foundation received the support of kind hearted individuals and corporate organizations to raise over 6 million naira in cash and kind, helping us reach more vulnerable people across Nigeria. These successes drive us forward, motivating us to do even more work in 2016 to create a better society.

 SOME OF OUR MAJOR PRIORITY FOR THE YEAR INCLUDE: 
  • Addresse Primary Healthcare in poor rural communities: our goal is to renovate a minimum of 2 PHCs in hard to reach communities.
  • Providing free cataract eye surgery for beneficiaries of our free eye care program: presently, there are 22 elderly and one young infant on our waiting list, they need urgent care.
  • Providing school infrastructure for under-served public schools across Nigeria: we want to provide a decent learning environment for schools (libraries, sickbays, and structural deficient classrooms).
  • Providing WASH (water, sanitation & hygiene) facilities in poor communities: we want to provide good sanitary environment for our children in vulnerable communities.
  •  Economic empowerment for youth and women :we want to empower a minimum of 500 women and youths in 2016, especially in conflict torn regions in the country.
  • Support to internally displaced persons:we want to provide relief to as many internally displaced persons in the north, especially to women and children.
  • Collaborating to create change: We cannot achieve success alone, so we work and will continue to grow our partnerships with foundations, corporations, individuals, advocacy groups, communities themselves, and peer NGOs. And of course -- we are nowhere without support from individuals like you. Please call us on how you can support us : 08164793838 or visit www.jeof.org
 
Thank you again for your partnership and support. Please read our quarterly newsletter to see stories that show your donations at work, impacting countless lives around Nigeria for better.
 
From all of us at JEOF,  we wish you a fulfilling and amazing 2016, filled with love, inspiration and joy!!!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
