“I am passionate about children and teaching. I was concerned with the system of education where I am serving currently, so I decided to reach out to the students” – Ejike Joy Ndidi. 

Ndidi is a Grassroots Development Champion passionate about children, and teaching.

She is a graduate of Aquaculture and Fisheries Management from University of Ibadan. Currently, she is working as a teacher at De-trio International School, Akwa Ibom.

Being a passionate educator, Ndidi saw the low literacy rate in her community and decided to employ Spelling Bee to redress the situation.

To that effect, she launched a “Spelling Bee competition” at De-trio International School.

In the course of the project, Ndidi taught the students the importance of learning and encouraged them to imbibe the culture of reading and making research. The project was rounded up with a spelling bee competition and presentation of gifts to winners.

Joy has taken action to improve the literacy of her students.
