Vita is proudly committed to annually support DRASA (DR. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh) Health Trust and the inspiring work it undertakes in Nigeria. DRASA Health Trust is currently scaling up a Health and Hygiene Awareness Program in secondary schools across Lagos state. The objective is to carry out targeted awareness and education campaigns aimed at behaviour change in school-age children.
Vita presented a donation to DRASA Health trust on the 1st of December 2018 as part of our Long Service Award Service Ceremony.
As a result of our donation, DRASA was able to buy supplies to facilitate the lesson and school activities. These supplies were needed to get DRASA Ambassadors to learn key health concepts related to drug abuse, hygiene, and antibiotic resistance. In turn, Ambassadors take forward these lessons to inform their circles of influence in school, at home, in their communities, and more.
The issues of drug abuse and antibiotic resistance are becoming a major global challenge so empowering the youth to not only understand the issues but also teach others how to prevent them, is a major step in the fight to keep people healthy.
VITA Construction’s donation also helped support 6 Youth Trainers who are DRASA’s program staff implementing the curriculum, training, and activities in each school. Without these Youth Trainers, the program would not be able to have the impact that it does in reaching 300+ Ambassadors. They are the main points of contact for each school and they manage the Health and Hygiene Club meetings in their assigned schools.
