Friends From Standard Chartered Bank!
Trust you are having a pleasant day..:) Best Regards.
Today, we hope to share with you an intriguing story of Ezinne, one of the beneficiaries to our Annual Free Summer Vocational Training Programme which ended on 21st, September, 2012.
Yes, As a group, our major goal is to impact lives positively. And, we aim to continually achieve this via our three core programmes which include the Youth mentorship Scheme, Education Sponsorship Scheme and Summer Vocational Training Scheme.
In 2011, we did launch the Free Summer Vocational Training Scheme for the less privileged youth in Ikola-Ipaja, Alimosho LGA, Lagos State with donations received from A Ray of Hope, UK and we successfully trained twelve young people in the art of hand and machine Knitting, Bead and Hat Making, how to use the Typewriter machine, make greeting cards etc. This year, we had another exciting session and Ezinne, was a participant, with a difference..
Ezinne as fondly called is an eleven year old girl who lives with her mum with three other siblings in her little hut/shop (Photograph attached). She is such an intelligent girl with much readiness to learn, although she attends a public school in the neighbourhood yet she speaks English fluently. :) One exciting thing about Ezinne is her profound ability to learn the art of knitting (hand and machine) during the training session and pass it on to her mother! She taught her mum how to knit! Today, while she awaits Lagos State Teachers to call off their strike, Ezinne and her mum knits away…thanks to our Sponsors! *Ezinne’s mum made the hat she’s got on.
PS: Last week Saturday, we had some Friends who work with Standard Chartered Bank visit us and we led them to the homes of their Mentees and Beneficiaries of the Education Sponsorship Scheme. Huge Appreciation to you our Friends! Thank You for all you do for the less priviledged ones...
Wishing you a blessed day!
