Swapping Bag 2012

on 2nd of April, 2012 is going to be an unforgettable day for primary school pupil of African Church Primary School, Ikola-Yeye, Ikola, Ipaja, Lagos State.

It was a day when most of them had their makeshift school bags such as Nylon bags replaced with Brand New School Bags.

Resource Sharing Network launched out "Swapping SchoolBag" Project some few weeks back when they received some bag donation from their Partner in the UK -A Ray of Hope. On our first visit to some private schools within Ikola metropolis, we targeted only those kids who are without school bags, and to our amazement, there were more kids who fall into this category. Hence, we decided to solicit for more bags from friends and Partner. Fortunately, we had more than fifty school bags donated to us again by A Ray of Hope, UK. We received other educational items such as Wall charts, Educational Toys etc. All these were given out free of charge to the disadvantaged kids in their respective schools during our visits. it was such a thrilling experience, to see beautiful smiles and expression of gladness on the faces of these little ones. Now, that means so much to us. We love them and care so much for their academic progress, too!

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.
