Mentoring in Style: Our Project BE Event with FCMB in a Nutshell

Mentoring in Style: Our Project BE Event with FCMB in a Nutshell
On Tuesday 2nd of November 2021, the staff of First City Monument Bank (FCMB) led by Mr. Omoniyi Iyanda, Team Lead Corporate Social Responsibility and Reporting, visited our school in Ikota Lagos to participate in our Project BE – group mentoring program.

It was an exciting and interactive moment as the staff volunteers from FCMB engaged our students in fun DIY activities like:
  1. Bookworm - a “read-a-thon” activity.
  2. My African Reading List - a vision board activity aimed at promoting reading culture among children.
  3. My Personal Values -using pictorial illustrations to explain which personal values they would like to apply every day.
  4. Story Reading- aimed at helping students point our moral lessons from a reading passage.

Each of these activities gave our children room to fully express themselves, be independent and keep exploring their creativity.

Don’t just take our word for it – check out some of the activities:

We can’t believe this moment ended quite early, and we still can’t stop thinking about how much fun we had. Our children almost didn’t want to go home. Thanks to FCMB team for volunteering to mentor our children.

PROJECT BE group mentoring program is changing the narrative for disadvantaged children. Through this program, children living in poor communities connect with people from different walks of life who mentor and inspire them to become all they could ever dream of.
