Farewell & Certificate Presentation to Community Based Volunteers

When the BasicNeeds project started in April 2016, 10 community based volunteers were trained. Along the line however, some dropped out, others found jobs and unfortunately one passed away. At the end of the project, only 5 volunteers remained. These were Mrs. Christie Asanaenyi, Shem Mathias Adze, Maryam Bello, Samuel Offiong and Abari Etsu. 

At the end of the project, only 5 volunteers were awarded with certificates for their immense contribution to the project. It is because of their effort that the project was able to reach out to over 500 users, get treatment for 177, train over 100 and financially empower 43. 

Below are some pictures and words from the volunteers;

Thank you to Kizito and Gede Foundation for locating me when this opportunity to help others came about. I will cherish the moments we worked as a family
— Mrs. Christie Asanaenyi
I am grateful for the capacity building I got as I went through a lot of trainings which helped me to reach out to more people and help accordingly.
— Mr. Samuel Offiong

The Foundation would like to thank all the CBVs for their efforts during the project. Special mention to Elisha Shaibu, who passed away before the project ended. May his soul continue to rest in peace.

"Gede Foundation is genuine and wants to help the people. They have not asked for money from community members and have delivered on what they promised so far. From this project, I am learning that there are so many mental disorders and people really need help." - Elisha
