Globavasity – NGO: who we are and what we do
Globavasity institute of continuous and vocational education Port Harcourt, Nigeria. The reading and writing experts, an accredited NGO for mass literacy in Nigeria by Non-Governmental Association for Literacy Support Services (NOGALSS) and National Commission for mass Education (NMEC) -Abuja. Established in 2001(19 years ago) by Amb. Engr. Obisike Okechukwu Elechi and today has more than 50 Adult Literacy Centers across Rivers State and beyond, with staff capacity of over 200 workers. Globavasity has trained over 50,000 Adult illiterates and has spent over 300 million naira single handedly. And is still working harder for international literacy awards and sponsorships. However, the organization is committed to promoting mass adult literacy, building competences and skills for people to become functional members of their society and to complement the government and other multilateral organizations like UNESCO, UNICEF, UNDP, ACTION AIDS ETC to achieve adults and youths’ literacy goals and by extension the SDGs.
OUR VISION: To wipe out mass illiteracy in Nigeria by 2030.
OUR MISSION: To establish functional adult literacy centres in all the towns and villages in this country Nigeria, through partnership.
STANDARD VALUE: We are committed to ensuring that our methodology and procedures are designed to conform fully with applicable national and international quality of functional literacy and adult education standards.
But we are looking forward to a time when it would be FREE for all through sponsorships. This year 2019 we already have more than 50 centers and we are working towards having more than 100 centers and we intend to train more than 10,000 adults and youths for real, if we ensure proper or adequate grass –root campaigns and awareness through partnership and sponsorship.
Globavasity is using this medium to call on the Government, NGO’s, multi-national companies, Religious leaders, politicians, and others for partnership and or sponsorship to enable us eradicate illiteracy in Nigeria.
This is because our unique methodology as enshrined in our MANUAL and DVD works as though it is magic or miracle and is capable of causing mass literacy revolution in Nigeria, if adopted for nationwide use. We want to mass produce the reading and writing MANUAL and DVD for nationwide consumptions or use; but lack the capital to do so. We promise to judiciously manage the funds that we will receive for support and use it to increase our efforts five times or more in a geometric order year after year till 2030.

THE MAN BEHIND GLOBAVASITY AND HIS PROMISES
I am Ambassador Engr. Obisike Okechukwu Elechi, the director Globavasity institute of continuous and vocational education, Port Harcourt. A graduate of petroleum engineering, Rivers state university of science and technology. A native of Ozuoha town in Ikwerre local government area of Rivers state, Nigeria. Happily married with four children, author of many books and a born teacher, inspired and commissioned by God for mass literacy programs in Nigeria. This is evident in the number of unique books and DVDs I have published. A man so passionate and diligent in waging war against mass illiteracy, since 2001, and has made tremendous progress without any support from anybody, NGO or Government.
If supported for this project of mass literacy in Nigeria, I promised to judiciously and jealously manage the fund very well and use it to establish hundreds and thousands of centers across the country – Nigeria, through sponsorship and partnership. But more importantly is to engage in nationwide mass literacy campaigns through our literacy programs on radio, television, and social media and so on. I am so sure and convinced that the display of our methodology or video on television / radio will cause dramatic commotions among the general public and that will trigger the start of a mass literacy revolution in Nigeria.
Yes, it is true that passionately I and my family suffered to sustain this program for eighteen (18) years, since 2001. And have spent over three hundred million (#300,000,000). Also last three years ago 2017 to 2019, I sold my inheritance –land worth #10 MILLION to pay salaries and center rents. Yes it is obvious that I will do anything to protect this ministry of mine (literacy programs), my passion and my investment of over 18 years. Thanks and God bless.
The word illiteracy is the inability of a person to read, write and speak a particular language of interest, say English language. Then an illiterate is like a deaf, dump, and blind person, who cannot communicate or interact effective with other people. Today in Nigeria such categories of people are too many in our country as confirmed by the Minister of education, Alhaji Adamu Adamu who said “75 million people are illiterates in Nigeria and that it is too high and not good for the country - Vanguard 21, September, 2017.’’
What a disaster, how can the country economy and people grow when 41% of its population cannot access or use cell phones (GSM), ATM –machines (Banks), Read instructional books and many other readables, know their rights, keep proper records, understand their environment, enhance their entrepreneurship skills, acquire life skills, shun inferiority complex, be eligible to be voted for etc.
