Must read

Real Estate firm, Pwan Group with inclination for empowerment said it has taken over the maintenance of two Primary schools with a population of over 500 pupils in Delta State.

This is even as it has empowered widows and 360 women from the 36 states of the federation.

President of the company, Dr.Jayne Onwumere disclosed this on Tuesday, while speaking with newsmen in Uyo after she was conferred with Eminent Peace Ambassador Award  organised by the International Association of World Peace Advocates during the 7th Anniversary of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

According to Onwumere, “we are a real estate company, but now we are empowering people to become financially independent .Two years ago, we adopted two  Primary schools with about five hundred children to take care of, one is called Enede community primary school the other one is called Obieze Amaka primary school, in Delta State.

” We renovated the school, employed four more teachers that will take care of some subjects. We intend to take care of these children, we discovered that it does not really cost so much to take care of children in primary schools, with N15,000 each, you can take care of them because there is already free education.

“So, right now we are sewing two school uniforms for every child, we are buying singlets, pairs of stockings, sandals(even though it is rubber) and school bags, so when the commissioner comes to commission the school, we will have brand new set of children. We don’t have to wait for the government.Education is dear to our heart.” She said

The MD added that as part of the company’s empowerment plan, several women and widows have been empowered to become self-reliant and independent.

“When we did our 10th anniversary, we did boreholes for our communities, empowered widows and school children , about five times we have gathered women, not just widows because there are some widows that are more comfortable than those who are not widows.

“We Empowered the indigent women with money about N100,000 so that they start a small business and in my local government, I empowered about twelve women every month. During our 10th anniversary we empowered 10 women in every state of the federation and once the names are collated, we begin to roll out the names.” She explained.

Chairman and Co-founder of the group Mr, Augustine Onwumere, while speaking with newsmen after bagging the same Eminent Peace Ambassador Award, said the company which started as a real estate and marketing in 2012 has taken a lot of youths out of the streets, adding that the award would spur him to do more.

“They say a reward for hard work is more work, I’m hungry for development even more hungry than what I have achieved,because i have a special calling to help people, I’ve made impart but I’m now looking for people who were nobody and climb from the depth to the level that I have reached by opening centres and training them. 

“We have about five training centres in Lagos, we even have accomodation to enable those outside the state to lodge and receive training for six weeks on how to live a life that is responsible and they go back to their state with what they have learned 

“The message to my partners,they should live an open door policy to receiving people who may not be what they are today allow them to eat from the king’s table so that they can become kings.”

The schools include Enede Community Primary School and Obieze Amaka Primary School.
