“This is why we are in business and that’s to touch lives, we say Pamtech is committed service to humanity and the DAD4Adolescents is one way to serve humanity. We don’t just make the money but we make the money so that we can use it for humanity. We’re centering on the young ones to give them clarity and direction for the next decade”

On Thursday, 17th November 2022, we brought to one venue, Holy Ghost College Owerri, Government Secondary School Owerri, Comprehensive Development Secondary School Owerri, Owerri Girls Secondary School, Community Secondary School Amatta and Ikenegbu Girls Secondary School for the second edition of the prestigious Defining a Decade for Adolescents (DAD4Adolescents); a humanitarian project of the Pamtech Group designed to chart a new decade for secondary school students in clarity and in truth.

At Art Nouveau, we said a Prayer, all of us said a Prayer and the event kicked off. Speaking to the hundreds of participants and guests, I shared my childhood story of how, a bright young lad from a poor background with limitations of going through school and enjoying the basic needs of man, had the first miracle of being enrolled to sit for SSCE and Poly Jamb by strangers, and also how I woke up to the reality of life after reading a book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki,

After reading the book, I proceeded to sell off my liabilities at that time to afford an asset (Pentium 3 computer) which became a defining point for my next decades.

Just after that, we had the first competition of the day, a Reading competition between the six schools that fielded their best as Umelo Anulika of Owerri Girls Secondary School emerged winner with a cash prize of #50,000 and other numerous prizes attached.

As they rejoiced and celebrated, Mr Ajah Excel, one of our speakers was introduced to the stage where he spoke to the students on how to survive through school, scale through job search and also how to be the best there is academically and otherwise.

The networking session between the students, teachers, parents and guests was also one filled with lots of laughter and fun in a bid to build rapport amongst everyone present.

One of the highlights of the day was the spelling bee competition that every school fielded their competitors, which had a student of Comprehensive Development Secondary School, Anyanwu Wisdom bag the cash prize of #100,000 with lots of gifts attached too.

Taking the students further on the path to define their decade, Mr Ikenna Okechukwu proceeded with the Vision Board segment where he taught the students on how best to craft their vision for the next 10 years so as to build a life that’s successful going forward.

I and the entire Pamtech Foundation find it a privilege and a validation of our committed service to humanity, as we donated fully stocked personal development libraries to five (5) secondary schools present as Community Secondary School, Amatta already had theirs during the first edition of DAd4Adolescents.

17th November 2022 was one of those days that I eventually look up to the heavens and say, “Yes, we did it!” seeing the smiles, excitement and impact the students and everyone had in the course of the second edition of the Defining a Decade for Adolescents.
