In the month of July, Sam Tensiontheory Yumar partnered with YMCA Kakuri to deliver palliatives to 21 Teachers in Heyik international School Kakuri Kaduna south. It will be stating the obvious to say that private schools teachers are the worst hit since the lockdown began in March.

Also, during this lockdown, Umar established the Majelisar progressive club – a community based organization in Makere, a community in Kaduna south LGA. Through the club, he has been able to sensitize over 100 households about best practice hygiene and the use of facemasks. They also repaired potholes in 3 streets to ameliorate the spate of accident on these roads.
