Thank You NOTE

‎...."every student deserves to be treated as a potential genius" -Anton.

Last year, Tope, a young lady was one of our GCEbeneficiaries.....Having lost her dad some years back, she and her 3siblings lives with their mum (a trader) and thus far, life has been so challenging. She wrote the WAEC exam once without enough fund towrite NECO...there and then, she was refereed to us and we decided tosponsor her next exam- 2010... GCE. Having made only 1paper in herprevious exams. At first, we were skeptical if she was going to passher next exam, and in our own human thinking we imagined that it mightbe a waste of resources sponsoring such a student. Alas, we decided tohelp But, were proved wrong by God! Who knows & sees the heart of allmen.

Now, that the result of the exam's out, this young lady had incredibleresult!! Still the best result so far of all the 21 students that wesponsorsed...She dazzed us...!

Another young man...a beneficiary, also made all his papers! No single subject did he fail. He got credits and distinction! Actually, thiswas a young man who's had difficult challenges and had to resolve tofending for himself and family. But, in his eyes you see strongdetermination & eagerness to study more.... The last time I saw him,he was on his way to a building construction site where he works as alabourer...moulding concrete blocks, carrying sand etc. Now, he's aFREE man! Having made all of his papers at last...we're so so happyfor him and hope he get admitted to a college soon...-realising his dream!

....(still collating results)

In RSN, we believe in every child's dream, providing support, encouragement, ideas and insights to help them overcome life's challenges.With smiles....we just wanna thank YOU for supporting our cause ofassisting the disadvantaged youths via mentoring and sponsorship approach.

GCE Results....

RSN Team wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year! At RSN, we believe that every New Year presents us a unique opportunity to touch the life of youths from difficult background through our sponsorship, tutoring and mentoring approach.

  Last year we daringly sponsored the exams of some (21) disadvantaged youths and paired over 15 students with Young Professionals as Mentors, building their self-confidence, making great social impact. And, we had a great response from mentors across the globe to support
the project. Thanking you with smiles....:).

  In 2011 we are stepping out to creating mini Resource Centers in Lagos, Nigeria for young people to learn and to connect with their Mentors online (truly, this has been one of our greatest challenges and we hope to overcome it this year. We humbly apologize to our volunteer mentors abroad who haven't been paired with a mentee, yet. It's plainly due to lack of proper means of communication with these kids -some of them are without phone and easy access to the internet). Hence, we hope that with the establishment of a Resource Center, things are gonna be better....:)

  If you have any book(s), Computer, Laptops, etc that you would like to support us with, please let us know. We look forward to impacting the lives of these young ones for good!

 P.S: As soon as we receive all of their GCE result details, we shall intimate you. Thank You
