Child Protection Workshop in Nigeria



FMSI in Nigeria

10/08/2012: Nigeria

Failing to get his visa in time to attend the Institute’s Workshop in Rome last March, Br Joachim Ezetulugo (Superior of the Marist Province of Nigeria) invited Jim Jolley, Director of FMSI Geneva Office, to Nigeria to conduct the workshop there. The program was held from 2-7 July in Orlu at the Province’s Formation Centre.  Whilst saddened by the fact that Br Joachim and Br Venantius missed the Rome workshop, they used the opportunity of Jim’s visit and invited Marist community leaders, school principals and members of the Provincial Council to attend. In all there were 30 participants.

Jim was able to cover many of the aspects presented in Rome, using other presenters’ PowerPoints, video clips, etc. In the last day of the workshop time was given to write the Province Action Plan and to get started on developing the Province Safeguarding Children Policy. The school principals were also given time to begin writing a Child Protection Policy for their schools. Whilst battling power failures (not good for PowerPoint presentations!) and noise on the roof from heavy torrential rain (it’s the Wet Season in Nigeria now), the participants greatly appreciated all the material Jim presented and enjoyed their interaction with him. The evaluation of the program deemed it to be highly successful.
