CSED CELEBRATE IDSDP AT IDPS CAMP UHOGUA

The residents of IDPs Camp Uhogua joined other Nigerians and people all over the world to celebrate events marking 6 April as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. The event which was held at the various playgrounds at the Camp was facilitated by CSED (Community Sport and Educational Development) Initiative.

 

Three major sporting events (Netball training/matches, Badminton training/matches and 5-A-side football training and penalty kicks competition) was held. Taking part in these games elicited a lot of excitement from the residents. The winners and runners-up of the three sports categories received cash prizes from CSED National Coordinator, Edema Fuludu.

 

However, it was not all training and playing, the camp residents also had food donated to them by CSED Initiative. These items include: ten 50kg bags of rice, cartons of packed fish, basket of tomatoes, groundnut oil and other cooking condiments that was meant for the dinner of the about 5000 (five thousand) residents of the Camp.

 

 

Given the success of the IDSDP event, CSED Trustees are currently liaising with the NYSC Zonal office in Edo State in order for them to post four Corpers (Doctor, Social worker, Psychologist and Physical Education graduate) to IDPs Uhogua. CSED Initiative would be willing to pay the one-year stipend of the four Youth Corpers who will be posted to the IDPs Camp in future. As part of their PSHE drive in schools, CSED hope to work closely with their supporters and partners to hold an inter-house sport event for the residents of the IDPs Camp Uhogua before the end of the year.
