  1. Great work. I believe the Lettterhead will be very important because of the letters you will be sending. Using a Letterhead gives you a brand and gives warm reception and acceptance you need.
    For ID card, I don’t think that is much important. You just need to communicate well with them and use the best approach to explain what and all you are about. Then, they won’t be asking for any ID cards. Who would refuse help and assistance for the sake of ID card. Once you can spell what you have to offer and the impact you want to make, they will readily accept you.

  2. The Global Youth Service Day initiative is a right step in the right direction. The 2018 edition will witness a great awakening especially in Ondo State.

    Thanks to SI4DEV management for its proactive measures and the Partners for their commitments.

    Together we will build a virile society with international best practices in politics, economy, health, technology, education, security, gender and youths oriented schemes.
