The Mother of Good Council Initiative (MOGCI), a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Port Harcourt, led by Lady Doris Onyeneke has embarked on the recovery and rehabilitative of girls whose hope in life seems shattered by varying life’s circumstances.
In an entrepreneurial training programme it organised in Port Harcourt recently, many girls who were said to have been abandoned by their parents and environments, took advantage of the initiative to be trained in their various areas of interest.
In an interview with our correspondent, the executive director of the organisation, Lady Onyeneke said MOGCI has established Mater Dei Care Centre to recover and give the recovered street girls a reason to live again as well as reopen a new chapter of their lives.
Lady Onyeneke said the belief in teaching a man to fish and empowering him with not and hook instead of giving him fish on daily basis, pushed the NGO to embark on skill acquisition exercise for 60 girls.
A release by the center said the training centre is not only for skills acquisition purposes, it is also a place to holistically reform and enhance the status of girls and young women.
“MOGCI has also succeeded in sending some of our girls who dropped out of school, back to school. Employment opportunities already await 30 girls in the catering department on graduation in one of the biggest eateries in Port Harcourt” the release said.
Expressing her challenges, the executive director said “our safe space (hostel) can only accommodate six abused girls at a time and we also need computers, sewing machines, and other equipment to empower those that would soon graduate to become full-fledged entrepreneurs”.
In her contribution, the coordinator of Mother of Good Counsel Initiative, Obiageli Oraka-Poghe said the success story of the centre is “mind blowing as the centre is gaining momentum because of the many visible achievements in the lives of the girls.
“The best investment is the one made in human beings. We correct the wrong information that uneducated women cannot worth anything in the society”, Oraka-Oipoghe noted.
One of the beneficiaries, Idara, said to have been abandoned by her mother to cohabit with a man for 12 years had this to say. “I was left to take care of myself for these number of years in a hostile environment but thanks to this NGO for restoring my life and giving me a future?
Adding “I will soon graduate from computer training and I am preparing for WAEC exam. I have also been reunited with my mother and siblings”.
It is worthy to note that Precious and Mary who gave their ages as 15 and 16 respectively dropped out of school because of teenage pregnancy. They both have also been sent back to school to further their education courtesy of the mother of Good Counsel Initiative.
What to Look for in a Marijuana Smoking Device
Though there are various ways to enjoy marijuana, smoking remains the most popular way to get high. This method also happens to have the most devices available.
When buying a smoking device, you must get a high-quality product. Not all apparatuses are made the same way and provide the same doses. Various studies prove that the device you use is equally important as the weed itself and can make the overall smoking experience better.
Buying a suitable smoking device is all about understanding your preferences and tailoring accessories accordingly.
The Main Types of Pipes
There are many ways for cannabis users to smoke marijuana. A hand pipe, also known as a dry pipe or bowl, is a convenient and easy method to smoke weed, especially for people who occasionally smoke. Featuring a small chamber, a hand pipe delivers harsher hits than other types of marijuana pipes.
On the other hand, a water pipe or a bong is ideal for experienced users. From small designs to large, water pipes, unlike hand pipes, contain specific chambers to hold water and deliver a smoother experience.
The one-hitter is a tiny and discrete pipe designed for a single inhalation or, as the name suggests, one hit. One-hitters are popular because they help users control the dosage of their marijuana intake.
And then, there are portable vape or vape pens that offer a smoke-free experience. Vape pens are a discreet way of getting your fix when on the go.
How To Choose A Good Dry Pipe
Whether you are looking to get high at home or while hanging out with friends, pipes make consuming cannabis much easier and quicker than packing blunts or rolling joints. As they are practical, every marijuana user must have at least one good dry pipe. With so many different pipes available at various price ranges, you should consider multiple factors to find a suitable dry pipe.
The first thing you should consider is size. The size directly translates to portability. For those who travel a lot, a pipe smaller in size might be ideal. In contrast, if you plan to use the dry pipe as a tabletop centerpiece, you might want something bigger.
Additionally, smoking pipes are made from different materials. While commonly made from glass, marijuana smoking pipes can also be made from wood, metal, or ceramic. Typically, glass pipes are the best option for marijuana smokers as you will be treated to smooth and flavorful smoke regardless of the strain.
You should also take into consideration your budget when looking to buy a marijuana dry pipe. Remember that a low price doesn’t always translate to a low-quality product. You will still be able to land some great deals if you look around.
How To Choose A Good Water Pipe
To find a good water pipe, size is the first thing you should consider. If you are passing the bong with your friends, a larger bong might be a better option. On the other hand, if it is for more personal use, choose a smaller one.
Secondly, think about the material. Cannabis users often prefer glass as it provides the cleanest and the purest-tasting hits. However, it can easily break and is usually pricey. So, for a rowdier situation, an acrylic water pipe might be a better option.
How To Choose A Good One Hitter
If you are looking to buy a one-hitter, the pipe’s material is the primary concern as one-hitters are all generally the same size. The material can affect flavor and durability, so you must choose wisely. The common materials used to make one-hitters are glass, acrylic, and metal.
One-hitters made from glass offer an unparalleled flavor, while those made from acrylic and metal can make the hit less flavorful.
Furthermore, one-hitters highlight various features like a removable bowl, self-ashing mechanism, design that allows for easier cleaning, and heat resistance.
How To Choose A Good Portable Vape
Unlike desktop vapes, portable vapes are easy to carry around and use discreetly. What’s more, they tend to be less expensive and versatile, making them an ideal option for beginners. When looking for a portable vape pen, you should consider if they are made for vaping dry herb or wax.
The next thing you should consider is battery life. This factor is vital if you are on the go without access to a device charger. A few vaporizers come with external batteries, while others have long battery lives.
Furthermore, you should consider things like temperature control and the type of heating—conduction or convection. Also, see if the vape pen is easy to clean or not. Lastly, look at the price. As you will be holding onto your vaporizer for a while, it is a good idea to invest in a quality product from a certified seller like WeedSmart, a Canadian marijuana dispensary.
Explore the Arena of Marijuana Smoking Devices
With a wide array of marijuana smoking devices available on the market, it might be daunting to decide the one that’s best for you. The right choice for you will depend on your needs and what you think might be the best for you. If you don’t like a specific device’s feel, you can always look for other options.
