This as a result of several causal factors like poverty,lack of motivation, outdated teaching methods and cumbersome workload. This resulted to the birth of "project Sportcative". It's a Be The Change (BTC) birthed by two Teach For Nigeria fellows with the main objective of eradicating chronic absenteeism among learners in a low income community in Ogun State Nigeria. It aims to leverage on the learners love for sport to motivate in order to achieve both academic and non academic outcomes.
The finds raised would help provide necessary sport facilities needed to motivate the pupils and keep them in school.And also improve their overall academic performance. These facilities includes a standard volleyball court, tennis boards, football arena, jerseys,boots,bats and balls for learners in St Charles RCM Nursery and Primary school Mamu Ijebu North Ogun State. These pupils are doing amazingly well in sports as this would serve as a motivation to not just being in school but also encourage their academic performance. No child would be afraid to kick a ball because of fear of getting injured, or jump rope because she is afraid her undergarments would be seen by others, it will be a case of running to school on a school day because learning isn't boring anymore and every effort is appreciated.
