THE Lions Club of Akowonjo, Lagos, has elected a new President, Ibiba Ofili, who has set out to execute projects in education, youth activities, health, environment and support for the less privileged.
In her address, she said:
Regarding health, she revealed that the club is going to participate in the childhood cancer awareness month starting from September 1 to 31, 2020, in partnership with Children Living With Cancer Foundation, while also collaborating with Temiye, a Professor at the Pediatric Unit of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), to avail the club of other project options for implementation
In the areas of environment, her plans to provide street lights for some areas have already commenced with visitations to identified stakeholders to enhance community visibility.
There will also be a drug awareness campaign for schools and special homes for young people. Drug abuse prevention talks, targeting youths in communities, will also be part of the programs for implementation.
In order to ensure adequate funds for the implementation of these projects, her approach to friends for support has so far yielded results, as over one N1million had already being raised.
She enjoined every member of the club to key into the process for their fundraising strategies to be inclusive and collective.
