MRS. OMOWALE OGUNRIDE. 

It’s Wednesday again and the woman crush is Mrs. Omowale Ogunride founder of FSD. Field of skills and dreams ( or foundation for skills development. )

What started out as just a church youth teacher’s effort to curb idleness among her teens has now turned into an institute for vocational training ! 

On the 1st of May 2003, she was at a restaurant where she found some of her youth “chilling” on a working day and within working hours. She couldn’t exactly blame them for not being at lessons or doing anything tangible because she knew their backgrounds. 

She decided that she must do something about it. She organized an activity for the youth in her church where she invited a potter and a bead maker to come work with her youth. In just hours later, the amazing things they were doing got her thinking. While they were having fun she saw a money making venture for them. 

As a result of the huge success they organized subsequent activities later in the year. The success stories began pouring in and that was when she realized that the vision was too small for just her local church. 

In August 2005 FSD was born. 

FSD is a not for profit organization that provides training in various vocations such as electrical installation and maintenance, fashion designing, catering, soft furnituring, entrepreneurship, carpentry and joinery to mention but a few. 

The institution is not only for people who do not have the opportunity to go to school, as the institution has trained teens , graduates, mothers and fathers alike. There’s no age limit and anyone is welcome. 

The office is at 9 Acme crescent adjacent to Dansol high school. The website is http://www.fieldofskillsanddreams.com 

Thank you Mrs. Ogunride for your actions in empowering Nigerian youths! More grease to your elbow and God bless you !

WOMAN CRUSH WEDNESDAY: MRS. ADUN AKINYEMIJU. 

In my opinion this week is flying by fast. Anyways it’s Wednesday and our woman crush this Wednesday is *drum roll please* Mrs. Adun Akinyemiju the director Dansol High School ! 

Mrs. Akinyemiju is a woman who is totally devoted to training children who will stand out and make a difference in their generation by blending biblical principles with modern day scholarship. ( Dansol students I’ve still got it 😌😉) 

Despite her office as the director, ( mummy Akinyemiju as she is fondly called by all who know her, is very approachable. She is down to earth and she’s always smiling but she can switch up quicker than you can say 0-100 when the need arises to discipline a child 😂😂. 

Indeed she’s a no nonsense person and I love her concept of disciplining students with the word of God, extra care and attention and punishments that can make one think about their lives instead of using the same canes the Fulani herdsmen use for their cows.

She’s a mother to all who have passed through Dansol High School and more . She’s a benefactor to many young adults and teenagers both financially and otherwise. She’s a wonderful role model. Her very being exudes the aura of dignity, decency and discipline. 

She is beautiful. 

She’s our woman crush this Wednesday.
