Uzommiri Study Centre
Providing a holistic formation for undergraduates and young girls
Uzommiri Study Centre is located in the heart of Enugu State with close proximity to Enugu State University and University of Nigeria (Enugu campus). The activities in the centre seek to provide undergraduate students with a holistic formation to complement their fields of study in the university. Most of the students come from underfunded public secondary schools and underperforming private schools where they lacked training in acquiring skills that will enable them to excel in their academics and manage their time well in school.
The centre offers programs that develop the students’ talents, character and spirit of service so as to prepare them to be responsible members of society. Academic skills and work habits are strengthened by individual coaching, mentoring and leadership training. Social responsibility is instilled by participation in organized community service projects in suburban or rural areas.
Since its inception in 1980, the centre has operated from three different rented premises. A property closer to the university was recently acquired and provides the undergraduates access to facilities like a library, study rooms and small classrooms to hold specialized course seminars. These are resources and facilities that are lacking in the government owned universities.
In addition, the center has activities for younger girls in secondary schools to educate them in virtues while enriching their personality through various extra-curricular activities such as cooking, arts and crafts, etiquette, etc. The staff also partners with parents in their role as primary educators of their children to reinforce values fostered at home.
Uzommiri Study Centre needs donors to help expand and improve its programs to serve the university undergraduates and young girls from the secondary schools who are the leaders of tomorrow.
