NGO seeks support for less-privileged children


She said that despite the various challenges befalling  the education sector, if everyone strived to make a difference in their own little way, it would create a ripple effect.

Taiwo made this call during  the donation of educational items to pupils of Igbogila Primary School, Ipaja, Lagos State, organised by  the United Parcel Services. She added that a large percentage of  the less-privileged children desire to learn but don’t have the necessary materials for school.

“The aim of today’s event is to promote education and motivate young children to take interest in their education. In this school, Igbogila, there are so many orphans. Most of them don’t have school bags and sandals. These gift items we are giving them may be little, but I know it would go a long way in affecting their lives positively.

“I urge private organisations to support schools such as this. If we all make a difference in our own little way, this world will be a better place. Every child has the potential to excel, all they need is encouragement,” she said.

The Head Teacher, Igbogila Primary School, Mrs. Mary Ochiama, said that she was deeply grateful to the NGO for taking interest in her pupils and also urged them to keep up the good work.
She said, “I am so happy.  I really appreciate the NGO for its kind gesture. I’m sure the pupils are so happy. I pray that God will bless them.”

However, Ochiama called on parents not to relent in performing their responsibilities. “Some children come to school without books or food.  During break time, they are so hungry. This is not right.  Some parents believe  government  should provide everything for their children. The government can’t do everything; you as a parent has roles that you must perform which include feeding and clothing your children.”

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.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…
