A Heart Felt Appreciati​on: Wrapping it all up...

Hallo Friends, We hope this mail meets you well…wishing you every strength and grace that you need to stand strong, firm and be the best that you really desire to be. Thank you for being there, we appreciate you. God bless. Such an amazing year it has been as we rode on giant strides, reaching out to more than a thousand young people in public schools, sponsoring the education programme and Examinations of disadvantaged students etc. Indeed, It has been fulfilling. We appreciate you for your donation to our cause. Special Highlights ü2012 GCE Result is Out *winks* and thus far, this week we have received feedback from three beneficiaries of the GCE Sponsorship Scheme. We look forward to receiving responses from 14 more students.

A Memorable Experience as the Kids went a-visiting...

Herewith are some photographs of a most recent event (December 15th, 2012) we had with some of our Sponsored kids. It was a Christtmas party that was organised for kids in the environ.

Really, it was a fun filling day for the kids who were visiting 'Father Christmas' for the very first time, receiving Christmas gift. A remarkable experience for them and you could tell from the excitement on their faces as they hop around from one  place to the other.....having fun.





Fundings: Not Enough..

.....Now, I really got to be pardoned. And, I know it...:D because it's hugely dawn on me that most of my updates got to do with young people's education, sponsorship, mentorship etc!... Really, working with young people has been so excitingly demanding! such that almost every day/week we receive request for education assistance from the disadvantaged young people who got dropped out of school etc and they really would love to get back to school. We get phone calls from some mothers(single parents) too and all they need is some financial support because things are pretty hard..

In less than 48hours we have got requests for JAMB exam sponsorship from 14 students and 2 for WAEC sponsorship from a Single parent whose child missed out of this year WAEC exam because she could not afford the fee...and there were no public schools in the environ to easily fix up her children.

Now, while our desire is to sponsor as many children as we can, however, our budget and findings wouldn't..…

Three Students Get Registerd for the JAMB examination.

Today, 14th day of December, 2012 the Resource Sharing Network registerd three students for the 2013 JAMB examination. Special appreciation to our Sponsors.

2013 WAEC Beneficiary: Let the Registration begin..

On the 4th of December, we did register a disadvantaged young man for the 2013 West African Examinatin for Senior Secondary School (WAEC). Caleb has been attending classes without enough funds to pay for his school fees and examination. This term, while other students attend classes, he had to stay back at home engaging in other activities/job just to earn some wages for himself and his sickly single parent -his mum. Today, he has been registered and all expenses paid by Resource Sharing Network. Thanks to our Sponsors. #The photograph attached shows Caleb in the School Principal's office with the School Principal and staff of RSN Thanks to YOU our friends. God bless..really, it means so much to us when we reach out to meet the needs of young people who need some help. It's a privilege and we are thankful..:). In the following weeks, we look forward to assisting more students register for this examination. At present, we have three more on our waiting list. Every penny counts…

Another Beneficiary Gets Admission for a Higher National Diploma..

Today, we did receive a text message from one of the Beneficiaries of our Education Sponsorship Scheme, how he has gained admission into the Polytechnic for a Higher National Diploma (HND).

In 2009, after we sponsored his NECO Examination, Simon passed his exams and immediately secured admission into Kogi State Polytechnic for an OND. Herewith was the text message that we received from him. (exactly in his words):

“Good day, thanks for the text Message, I just checked my NECO and I got 9 Credits, I don’t
know how much I go thank you!!!!”

Today, his text message reads:

"Good day ma, how is the family? I have been given admission for a Higher National Diploma in Kogi State Polytechnic"

Good to know that he is no longer where he used to be...he is simply movingON.
Simon had his secondary school education in Government Day Sec. School, Lokoja, Kogi State

Yes, and every reason to appreciate YOU our friend for your HUGE and immeasurable support, donations, good wishes etc. all through the year. Thank You! Interestingly, in our own little way of paying it forward aside education sponsoring; we have visited some Orphanage Homes in the past years, to donate some items.
