NCWS, CFPI partner to promote child education
The National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), and the Centre for Family Peace Initiative (CFPI), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), to promote quality child education and responsible parenting in schools and homes across the country.
The group would join forces to motivate, encourage and challenge parents and teachers to be the best they could be, in the task of moulding children’s character.
The MoU would culminate in the public presentation of a Parent-Teacher Motivational Handbook, a book on capacity building of parents and teachers for the academic excellence and sound moral upbringing of children.
The handbook is published by Centre for Family Peace Initiative, a marriage and family focused non-governmental organisation that is based in Abuja.
The National President of NCWS, Mrs. Gloria Laraba Shoda, said after the signing ceremony that her organisation was pleased to partner with the centre on the book project, adding that women as mothers, and the first and most important teachers, would benefit from the book, which has the capacity to positively impact parents and teachers for the common good of children and the nation.
On his part, Executive Director, Centre for Family Peace Initiative, Mr. Chinedum Ikogwe, who compiled the book, said it was conceived to address one of the four core advocacy concerns of his organisation, which is parenting and child development.
