Winniefred Leche: How I Donated 50 Desks for School Students Sitting on the Floor
Winniefred Leche, a 2019 NYSC member serving in Bauchi State went out of her way to donate 50 desks for a school where students were sitting on the floor to learn as her community development project.
Winniefred Leche is the CEO of SAS Kitchen, a content creator, public speaker, a certified brand storyteller from Rochester Institute of Technology, USA, and a Tony Elumelu Foundation social media influencer.
She is a recent graduate from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria (ABU) where she studied French Language and also obtained a certificate in Mandarin. She was an Executive with the International Model United Nations in Africa (IMUNA), a John Maxwell Certified Coach, and a mentee to Elisha Mamman, Covener of the Winning Mindset.
According to her, she was posted to Bauchi State to serve as a National Youth Service Corp member (NYSC) in November 2019. Here is what she had to say about her experience;
I was so unhappy because I had lived in the North all my life. I hoped to serve somewhere in the East or West but here I was, about to go Up-North and the stories I had heard about Bauchi State was not encouraging at all.
Well, I didn’t have a choice, so I obeyed the Clarion call.
On getting to camp, I wrote down my NYSC goals and one of the goals was to execute a community development project (CDS).
I got to a Government school in a community (Lushi) and I saw the students sitting on the floor to learn. It was really disheartening. So, I proposed to donate 50 desks to the school.
Getting the funds to execute the project was the major challenge I faced.
COVID-19 almost disrupted my plans too but thank God for the grace to push till the end and today, it is REALITY.
NTA Bauchi covered my event for free!!! Only God can do this.
I want to specially thank my family for being extremely supportive. They gave me moral support when I was almost giving up.
