Thank You, KPMG!

Read the lips. "KPMG, thank you so much"

When we received some recommended textbooks from KPMG, last year December, we knew it was a timely donation as only 1 in every 9 children can afford the recommended textbooks. Today,  we gifted Israel, a 13years old, previously out of school boy, whose education halted when he lost his mum some five years ago. He is in basic 2.


Thank You So Much, #KPMG #financial #auditor #nigeria #Street2SchoolNG #education #basicschool #lagos #thankyou.

Merry Christmas.

Dear Sir/Ma,
Merry Christmas from all of Us!

She was only 7+years old.

She was only 7+years old.
She fell ill 2weeks ago.
Maybe, for lack of hospital in the community.
Maybe, for lack of adequate knowledge.
The parent resolved into spiritual intervention.
It must be a spiritual attack.
Mary couldn't move again.
Yesterday, Mary died in the church.
Where her parent had taken her to.
Today, I crrrriiieeed. Still tear-dropping.
I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.

Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.

Identifying the Barriers.

"Education is not simply about making schools available for those who are already able to access them. Inclusive education is about being proactive in identifying barriers and obstacles learners encounter in attempting to access quality education, as well as in removing those barriers and obstacles that lead to exclusion. No child may be excluded based on perceived difference such as sex,  ethnicity, language, religion, economic condition or ability...." UNICEF 

This summarises our activities at Street to School Initiative.
