As part of efforts to boost education opportunities for Nigerian students especially in Niger Delta, the Princewill Trust and Dubai Tourism Corporation for Commerce Marketing (DTCCM), under its education tourism initiative, CLR education consulting, and in collaboration with Princewill Trust, have formally revealed the winners of the 2021 Vision and Success Opportunity Challenge.
The winners who include Ms. Soruchi Nwanodi, Mr. Samuel Onyeocha, Mr. Melford Ekene and Ms. Deborah Ibaningo are all Rivers State students who scaled all the hurdles to success, though the competition gave an opportunity for ten winners, unfortunately, only four met the required standards.
According to a statement made available to journalists, “the winners are rewarded with a group trip to Dubai which comprises of an Economy Roundtrip Flight Ticket (origination Port Harcourt), Hotel Accommodation for 6 nights (includes breakfast/lunch/dinner), Entry Permit (Visa), Covid tests, Ground Transportation in Dubai, Airport Transfer in Dubai and Operational/Leisure Tours. The projected travel date is in September 2021.”
The Vision and Success Opportunity Challenge was a forum created by Princewill Trust, an NGO which encourages ambitious young leaders to pitch ideas and strategies for furthering their vision and success in life.
The challenge was designed to help current Nigerian university undergraduates and postgraduates imagine realistic career models and investigate how to shift from concept to reality while still pursuing their studies.
Prince Tonye Princewill, founder and initiator of Princewill Trust, said: “It took a huge effort by Stella Fubara–Obinwa and her team in Dubai Tourism and Nneka Oduah and her team at CLR to pull this off. For that, I am truly grateful.
We would have loved to have more people go, but the standards are high and this aspect will never be compromised. What the team at Princewill Trust will do is continue to support initiatives like this, with a view to further promoting the next generation of our Rivers youths.
