My name is Gloria Daniel… This blog began on August 2013 as I arrived in Nigeria to take up the position of Teacher Trainer in Nigeria with the charity VSO (Voluntary Services Overseas). Nigeria continues to be ranked as one of the poorest countries in the world with an estimated 9 million children not attending school. Working with the local communities I will support. Improvements in the quality, relevance and accessibility of basic education in the Osun State of Western Nigeria.
Just for reference, I know Gloria Daniels very well. She was born and raised in the UK and has volunteered to help instruct teachers in Nigeria to become better teachers. I am allowing her to write daily blogs here on this website to use as a journal of her struggles and involvement with the people of Nigeria.
She will have to learn to eat the local foods there, learn to live with limited access to electricity, and try to stay healthy. We can all learn a great deal from her struggles there. I hope everyone looks forward to reading her posts as much as I do. Good Luck Gloria!
Sincerely Kenneth Merrick
