It was like a Biblical camel that could find it easier to enter the eyes of the needle than for the rich to access the Kingdom of God. Initiative for Sound Education, Relationship & Health received 940 applications from African countries for her Undergraduate Studies Class 4. About 280 were admitted for the free 5-month course class that commenced in January 4, 2020.
At the beginning, it looked like usual classes that abound the internet. By the time the heat generated by the class' rules, attendance marking, facebook engagement, in-class contributions got to a certain level, many soberly clicked exit button while others kept struggling to excel with their last breath.
The number of Scholars of the Class that made it to the 5th month got significantly dropped below 150. The implementation of capstone project further reduced them to 97 that finally excelled and became ISERH Associate Ambassadors on Sunday, June 7th, 2020.
These warriors got successful in making sure they won the race. They are superheroes who faced adversities and conquered them. Despite the challenges of power outage and distorted internet services in Africa, these refined entities conquered failure and emerged as the new set of African Hopes. Through their capstone projects, they were able to impact 4,504 persons across Africa on what they've been taught in the course.
As we celebrate these amazing 97 for excelling, we appreciate and celebrate our 13 global icons that facilitated the core courses and our 9 awesome Associate Ambassadors that joined in facilitating elective courses for the period of 5 months.
We are convinced that these 97 IAAs are now better equipped in corporate, social, entrepreneurial, and relationship skills than they were, 5 months ago. We have launched them to the world and we have seen their zeal towards making Africa stand equal with the rest of the world. We believe that they have started working towards projecting the beauty, strength and resilience of Africa to the rest of the world. Africa is no longer a zoo to us and these 97 IAAs, but the earthly paradise that powers the beauty, strength and civility of the universe
IAA Nathaniel Ogbobe won a $100 ISERH Facilitators Prize for being outstanding, and implementing more than the required number of capstone projects. IAA Aminat Sulu smiled home with a $50 ISERH Excellent Prize for her ruggedness, dedication, perseverance and determination.
From all of us at ISERH, we are better energized and strengthened to do far better than we have been doing in the past.
