The program was brought to life by the then Governor of Delta State, Dr E.E Uduaghan who took a gamble, had it piloted for six months from September 2013 before it was expanded to every part of the State till December 2015 when the new administration could not pay the team anymore.
It was launched in the State of Osun by Governor Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in April 2017 and it is still ongoing. It has been approved by the Kaduna State Governor Mallam El-Rufuai and work started June 2018. While the Governor of Plateau State, has taken the team on to train teachers.
