As part of the activities outlined by the wife of Ondo state governor, Mrs Betty Akeredolu in training the young school girls on capacity building on a two-week.
Program, leaders have been urged to make society a better place to live in through meaningful initiatives.
Addressing the young girls at the camp, Damilola Ashaleye of Ashlam said that the young girls can be more useful if the leaders can emulate the gestures of the first lady.
However, the BeMore Summer Bootcamp dance coach – Brave Ogidan-Eyinla – and her team took the girls through the fun fitness routine, noting that rhythmic aerobic is not just a good stress reliever, but is also good for the entire body.
Next was personal hygiene and sanitation, followed by fruits and breakfast. Later the girls had lessons on Microsoft Office Productivity Tools in their ICT classes.
Another highlight was the leadership session which started with a networking session to help the girls interact amongst themselves.
After a short dance to help the girls loosen up and relax, the class had a breakout session where the girls deliberated on issues of leadership.
The girls were divided into groups and made presentations with three girls representing each team.
A session on effective leadership was taken by the Ashdam Facilitator, where the girls learned the attributes of an effective leader. Damilola Ashaleye of Ashdam Solar anchored the session on introduction to renewable energy, where the girls learned about clean energy and the sources, among other things.
The two-week bootcamp has produced over 1500 girls empowered with problem-solving skills, social and leadership skills, information and communication technology and renewable energy.
