Session Delivery:

Upon arrival, the participants were grouped into teams, with the assistance of the volunteers present. Some participants who lacked the Itsekiri NextGen crested vest also eagerly joined the session. The event commenced with a participant leading the opening prayer, followed by everyone singing the melodious Itsekiri anthem, fostering a sense of unity and camaraderie.

Emmanuel Egbe provided a quick recap of the previous Entrepreneurship session to refresh the participants’ memories. Then, Emmanuel Fregene, the project’s sports coach, highlighted the significance of sports and proceeded to educate the attendees about the rules and benefits of each game.

To enhance engagement, some participants were asked to demonstrate certain games practically, igniting excitement among the rest. The enthusiasm was evident in their reactions and side comments.

The team leads were instructed by Emmanuel Egbe to group their members based on their interests in specific games. Various indoor games were available, including Ludo, Eyo, Whot, Snake and Ladder, Scrabble, Monopoly, Draft, and table tennis. Most participants had the opportunity to experience each game, while others observed keenly to learn from the players.

The Monopoly game posed a bit of a challenge for some, as it involved buying and selling properties (real estate). However, Jolomi Tedeye and Emmanuel Fregene took the time to explain the rules to the participants, leveraging their knowledge of Entrepreneurship to make the game more understandable.

During the gaming sessions, all the volunteers actively participated, playing alongside the attendees, offering guidance, and helping them improve their gameplay.

Despite a minor obstacle, the absence of a table for table tennis, the participants quickly improvised by combining two plastic tables and using an aid to secure the net in the middle. This resourcefulness led to an enjoyable and competitive table tennis tournament, with everyone taking turns to play.

As the session drew to a close, it was evident that the participants were reluctant to end the games, as the enjoyment and fun were at their peak.


In conclusion, the 11th session of the Itsekiri NextGen Project focusing on indoor games proved to be a resounding success. The variety of games provided an engaging and enjoyable experience for all attendees. The strong spirit of camaraderie and enthusiasm displayed by both participants and volunteers made the event memorable.
