The 22nd session of the Itsekiri NextGen Project focused on an ICT session, emphasizing the importance of computer and tech literacy among young participants. The session aimed to provide valuable skills and knowledge to the attendees.

Session Highlights:

The session began with 56 participants gathering at the Former Caravan 4 in Aja-Pessu (Pessu Town), Warri. After settling into their seats, the coordinator initiated the session with an opening prayer, followed by the Itsekiri anthem.

To ensure active participation, laptops were allocated to each team, and additional tables were set up to accommodate all participants. The facilitator for the day, Debi Amadedon, introduced the Marvin Beacon application on each laptop, designed to teach touch typing and improve typing speed.

The exercise involved typing practice and tests, where the participants engaged with the application on their individual laptops and took turns typing on the central computer, which was projected for everyone to observe. The bold letters on the keys made it easy for them to see, but the primary goal was to enhance typing speed and proficiency.

The session proved to be engaging and interactive as the participants watched each other take on the typing challenge. Some participants excelled, while others faced difficulties, yet they remained motivated by observing their peers’ progress.

Throughout the session, the atmosphere was vibrant, and everyone enjoyed the learn-and-play approach to the ICT activities.

Other Key Activities:

As part of the session, the organizers distributed the book titled ‘The Adventure of Princess Pauline, Prince Ademola Jnr, and their Blue Dragon’ to those attendees who did not have a copy.


During the session, there was a minor inconvenience when the power generator experienced a temporary failure at the interval. However, the issue was promptly resolved, and the session resumed without significant disruptions.

Overall, the ICT session proved to be valuable and effective in imparting computer and tech skills to the young participants. The engagement and enthusiasm displayed by both the volunteers and attendees underscored the success of the event. The Itsekiri NextGen Project remains committed to nurturing the potential of the youth and preparing them for a tech-driven future.
