Miss Soladoye, whose Primary Place of Assignment is the Osun State Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare, visited some schools in Osogbo, including Ataoja Grammar School and Osogbo Grammar School, distributed some academic materials, including books and pens, for both male and female students.
Some of the female students with academic items and pads they were given.

She also gave out free menstrual pads to female teenage students and conducted a private session with them on how to maintain menstrual hygiene, shun pre-marital sex and avoid indulging in activities that could tamper with their reproductive system.
Addressing senior boys and girls of Ataoja Grammar in their school hall, the corps member, who narrated her real life story of how she waved the storm while growing up and successfully completed her degree studies, urged the young learners imbibe the right mindset for a better future.
Adorned in her NYSC uniform, the graduate of Mathematics Education from the University of Ilorin, demonstrated her lectures with the aid of projector as she displayed some pictorial effects of social vices that the students need to shun.
In the same vein, Miss Soladoye sensitised students of Osogbo Grammar School on the need for them to dream big, make right choices in life and dare to grow beyond their limitations.

Fielding questions from journalists at the end of the sensitisation, the NYSC member, said, “the aim of the project is to provide the teenagers between the ages of 14 and 18  with the adequate mental support enough to create self awareness, reorientation and building of the right mindset with the right kind of attitude for a better future.

“This will in return contribute to a better society. It was a practical session whereby we went beyond the scope of the normal school curriculum to mould their thoughts and choices in life. The students, over 1000 of them, were lectured on making the needed choices on life and how they can dream big and dare to grow beyond thier limiting belief.
“I needed to let them into what I passed through while growing up and how God assisted me in surmounting the challenges. All what they have been imparted will create a transition in values and standard and it will help them maximise their potentials and talents and also make them discover their untapped capacity.

“Even during the sessions, most of the students were able to identify the required areas where urgent actions needed to be taken for the success they desired. The project was able to, most importantly, encourage purpose driven skills which aid creativity and growth. I carried out this project to give back to the society through these students as I will be rounding-off my NYSC experience next week.

“I urged them (beneficiaries) to do away with social vices and attitudes such as ego, procrastination, that can mar their existence,” Miss Soladoye stated.
Meanwhile, the management of the two schools represented by their principals, thanked Miss Soladoye for imparting the students and also enjoined the school boys and girls to put all what they have learnt into use.
They also called on other corps members to emulate Miss Soladoye.
