“The main focus of that Egg Drive Project was to give back to the society, especially people from all sectors of the state that participated in the Ramadan fasting, while some of the beneficiaries also included the Muslim students of the School of Nursing, Eleyele, Ibadan.”
“As we all aware that eggs are high source of protein, and we distributed eggs for the students so they can use it for their iftar meals, and a total of 30 crates of eggs were distributed.This unexpected gesture was met with smiles and prayers from the students.”
We also went to The Polytechnic Ibadan, where we distributed no fewer than 35 creates of eggs for students. The beneficiaries at the Polytechnic Ibadan really appreciated our gesture as they were observing Ramadan fasting while their examinations was ongoing at the same time.
“We took the EGG DRIVE PROJECT campaign to University of Ibadan, where we were able to give out 35 creates of eggs to some students as well as the executives of the Muslim Student Association of the campus. We were able to engage the executives of the muslim community of the campus. We engaged them on benefits of eating balanced diet and living healthy ”
“We also took our personal community outreach programmes to some radio stations, in Ibadan Metropolis, where we visited I-Fliers Radio and Agidigbo FM where we organized series of programmes that centered on educational workshops on healthy eating habits, with emphasis on the nutritional value of eating egg daily and how to make healthier food choices on a low budget.”
“We also do giveaway for people who answered our questions correctly, through that alone, we distributed no fewer than 100 creates of eggs for our people.”
“Our final stop, and one of our main priorities, were the less privileged on the streets of Sabo, Mokola, Akinyele, and Oja’ba areas of Ibadan. At the end, we were able to distribute no fewer than 263 creates of eggs for our people through the Egg Drive Project.” Oduntan said.
