School children.

Adipro International Corp (AIC), through its corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm Evolve said it has launched its ‘Inspire’ programme, through its School Connect platform and with the help of its distributors in Nigeria, Pacegate Limited and Pacegate Energy & Resources Limited (PEARL).

‘Inspire’ is a three-day, value-based education enrichment programme assisting educators to develop a heart-centred approach to teaching. This will enable teachers to take a holistic approach toward student growth using 21st-century styles of learning such as the ‘Heartfulness Way’. 

This programme aims to create a loving and compassionate learning environment through the heart-based approach. Teachers and students collaborate in the Heart-Based Teaching (HBT) approach to not only achieve the cognitive goals of school and performance readiness but to create a classroom environment conducive to the development of the social-emotional knowledge and skills associated with personal and career success.

The ‘Inspire’ programme being implemented in Nigeria commenced with the training of 18 teachers from six schools – Ilupeju Junior Grammar School, Ilupeju Senior Grammar School, Ilupeju Junior Secondary School, Ilupeju Senior Secondary School, Estate Junior Grammar School and Estate Senior Grammar School – in the ‘Educational District VI’ within Ilupeju. The three-day training was facilitated by professionals from across the world and covered facilitation skills, the ‘Heartful’ teacher, heterogenous learners, heart-centred education, practical curriculum workshop, communication skills, inspired learning, as well as ‘Experiencing Heartfulness’ and certificates’ distribution.

“This year, we are introducing the value-adding ‘Inspire’ program to help these students communicate and understand clearly what they are being taught in schools. Global studies have shown that the best way to make lasting change is through the teachers. We are scaling up gradually,” said Godwin Ejeh, head, corporate social responsibility, Pacegate Group, distributor of Adipro Chemicals in Nigeria.

Sharing her experience as a participant of the ‘Inspire’ program, Mrs. Fahm -Bello, a teacher at Ilupeju Junior Grammar Schoolsaid: “The training has been an eye-opener. The highlight for me was the communication skills workshop which I intend to put into practice with the students. They taught us to teach from the heart because when teachers are invested in their pupils, they become invested in themselves, their peers, their teachers and their education.”

Globally, the ‘Inspire’ programme has touched the hearts of over 10,000 teachers, education officers and principals with centres in over 130 countries serving more than one million people worldwide. By empowering educators, the programme seeks to improve interest in school, stress management, communication skills and empowerment for Grade 1 to 9 students through their teachers to enable them become better individuals and add value to society.

Evolve said it remains committed to supporting the education of the girl-child. In 2020, it donated school supplies to 1,000 girls in 6 schools within its local community Ilupeju, Lagos State.

Also, in 2021, it donated to 4,200 girls in 21 schools across 4 states

“This year, we plan to reach 8,000 girls in 40 schools across 8 states in the country. The vision is to empower 50,000 girls within 5 years,” the organisation said.
