PACAW: Changing A Culture Of Poverty And Corruption To One Of Hope Through Education For Children In Africa

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety)

While ‘Paying it Forward’ might be just a catch-phrase for some, not so for Dr. Sylvanus A. Ayeni. A retired neurosurgeon and former associate professor of neurosurgery at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, NE, Dr. Ayeni was born in Nigeria and witnessed first-hand how poverty and corruption robs children in Africa of their chance at an education and fulfilling life. To help change this he founded the non-profit organization Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW) in 2007 and, together with a team of dedicated members of the local community, they are nurturing a new generation of African leaders through access to a different educational culture.

Please read the following press release and let me know if I may schedule an interview with Dr. Ayeni. We believe many in your audience would be interested in hearing of the work being done by this remarkable organization. If you would like to run this story, we would be happy to send you a .jpg of Dr. Ayeni. Thank you for your time.

PACAW: Changing A Culture Of Poverty And Corruption To One Of Hope Through Education For Children In Africa

Bethesda, MD ― The mission of Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW), is to nurture and develop a new generation of African leaders via access to a different educational culture at the primary and secondary school levels. In providing the infrastructure and staff for quality education for pupils in poor underserved communities Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch promotes change.

“We can help develop better leaders when early education focuses on turning the gaze of the children away from avarice, extortion, selfishness, the vain, and obsession with accumulation of material wealth.” Dr. Sylvanus A. Ayeni is president of the nonprofit organization. “This type of education culture at the basic and secondary school levels would prepare young people for leadership that champions the development of their nations from within, and embraces living for a higher purpose.

“We’d like to expand our programs to several states in Nigeria,” says Dr. Ayeni. “In particular we would like a presence in the delta area and the northeastern part of the country where education has been brutally decimated by stone age ideologues.” Later, they plan to establish similar programs in other countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Biennial PACAW Leadership Academy is the second component of PACAW’s program. The Academy is for community leaders, the teachers and interested young graduates from the country’s tertiary educational institutions. The lessons and the values learned are then passed on to the children.

The third aspect of PACAW initiatives is the Community Economic Empowerment Program, intended to lift up the community economically. The goal is to transfer the PACAW programs to the community, the local government and perhaps, the state government within about ten years. This is designed to break the cycle of dependency which is so deeply entrenched in many nations of Sub-Saharan Africa.

PACAW is governed by members of an all-volunteer board in the USA and Africa. Members of the Organizing Committees of the programs at the grassroots level in Africa are all volunteers as well. Your assistance in helping us to get generous donations to this cause would be greatly appreciated. Currently, at least 95% of donations go directly to the village (community) in Africa for the projects to fulfill the mission of PACAW, Inc.

Dr. Ayeni is a retired neurosurgeon and former associate professor of neurosurgery at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. Born in Nigeria, he has studied and taught around the world. For more information, please visit: www.pacaw.org.
