Relocation/Placement Program

The Relocation/Placement  Program identifies the most vulnerable school-aged children from Northeastern Nigeria and moves them to safer environments. The program has shaped similar to a foster care for orphans and less privileged. Since 2015, 38 children have been relocated. Several have returned to the Northeast, while others have graduated from the schools/institutions they were placed at.

Regular school activities were the hallmark of the placement program during the month of October. Saratu, a student in primary school was nominated as the head-girl of the primary school section. Meanwhile Hannatu and Helen were promoted to JSS3. When these girls first came in 2016, they were reading at kindergarten and primary one levels. Hannatu was also nominated as her class-rep. In other academic good news, Wadi Dauda got admission into the University of Jos remedial sciences program. Not wanting to be left out, the boys in the placement program also brought attained some accolades as Friday McDonald was nominated as the head-boy of Missionary Action Model Team School. In the last week and a half of the month, the three schools closed at various times for the end of first term break. During that time, Wadiam (St. Luke’s College) went to the dentist for dental treatment. Missionary Action Model Team School resumed on the 28th of October while St. Luke’s and St. Pirans resumed on the first Saturday of November.

EMCI School: Yola

This school was started in January 2015 to provide an emergency education option to the thousands of IDP children who were displaced by Boko Haram in Borno and Adamawa states.  Many of the communities have been attacked multiple times since then, and the schoolchildren have not been able to return home. As a result, EMCI Yola has become a mainstay of the community.

Following resumption of the 2019/2020 academic session on the 16th of September, pupils and students came pouring in in the first week of October. This trend of late resumption by both regular and internally displaced children has been a real bane in the pursuit of academia by the school and needs to be addressed. Pupils and students who did well were promoted to the next class as usual.

In the same view, textbooks pertaining the Holy Bible were distributed to teachers and students by founders Paul and Rebecca. The administering of the grow right supplements drink was done thrice a week and students are responding positively to it.

Needs expressed by the School Management:

  • Additional library space
  • Uplifting of water for the laboratory
  • Power supply for both the laboratory and computers
  • More classroom structure for our learning students and pupils to accommodate full day classe
  • Fencing of the school wall compound because passersby have made it a cross road
  • Staff identity card

International Relocation/Placement Program 

The International Relocation/Placement program was the first major project undertaken by EMCI. 10 of the Chibok school girls who escaped from their Boko Haram abductors in April 2014 were identified and relocated and placed at various High Schools in the USA. They have each made progress at their individual paces and are all now in Colleges and Universities. 4 of them are juniors and expected to graduate with a 4 year university degrees in one and a half year’s time.

This month, founders Paul and Rebecca were in the United States where they were able to visit with some of the pioneer beneficiaries of EMCI.
