Since 2013 we have been visiting main land Warri and surrounding villages to educate people on common preventable diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and obesity. The easy read materials we produce helps indigenes to know how to use locally resources to live healthily. We are grateful to the Olu of Warri for granting us the opportunity to reach out to the people during the coronation anniversary (oyo Ekoro) celebration.
Our relationship with the Greenwich Maritime Museum has allowed us to support the Itsekiri community in the UK to successfully showcase their culture during the black history month in October. The event also availed the Itsekiri community to see artefacts on Chief Nana of Koko held in the museum. It was an event the brought the community together and we hope this becomes an annual event.
We are pleased we have been able to support the development of an online resource that allows learning of (Itsekiri) this at risk of extinction language. Please register at www.learnitsekiri.com for your free access.
