Academic Talk Show Update with Photographs..


Academic Talkshow…
                              
Hope you had a pleasant day at work... Wishing you a very pleasant weekend, good health and great things you desire... Thanks for all you do.
This mail was supposed to be a brief report of the youth programme we had yesterday, however, it seems an epistle, already…J We hope you would enjoy reading it as much as we did. We just had to bring it to you as it is…awesome!

One word to truly describe the July 10th event was ‘wow’! It simply was a wow experience as we stormed Estate Grammar School, Command area in Oke-Odo LGA, Lagos state for an Academic Talkshow –“YouAreBetterThanYouThink!”. As always, we were fully kitted with successful individuals who were willing to share their stories to inspire greatness in young people.
Once again, we use this opportunity to extend our heart-felt gratitude to God for a successful event and to our Guest Speakers for their selflessness. Thank you for visiting our "villa". A truly underserved area/school. Thank you for the efforts. We appreciate your gestures.
The School event started at some minutes past One o’clock and was well attended by over 300 students with School officials. It was truly a mind-blowing session to talk about the importance of Education as we had terrific friends of RSN as Guest Speakers.
We had Mrs. Sola Adeyemi from GUINESS, who spoke on Self-Esteem and encouraged the youth to believe in themselves, love themselves and be mindful of every decision they take when confronted with challenges etc. She buttressed her points with some personal experiences. It truly was a heart-to-heart discussion.
The next Speaker was Mr. Michael Unegbu, the C.E.O of MickCHEM Global Services. As an Engineer, he did not hesitate to discuss the prospect in engineering and the importance of education in this dispensation. He inspired the youth to discover their talent and believe in their abilities. They should love their teachers etc. He also shared some successful personal stories to motivate young people. It was mind blowing.
The Chief Guest Speaker was Mr. Teslim Belo-Osagie, Head Client Coverage Generalists, Standard Chartered Bank. He spoke extensively on the need for young people to be hardworking, focused and purpose-driven. And to drive home his points he spoke in some low level languages. :D Yes, he spoke so fluently in Pidgin language…as this seems to be the best language understood by the students thus, they paid rapt attention throughout the session. It was explosive, absolutely!
Just before the close of event, we had some special session to learn entrepreneurship from Mr. Olufemi Omotayo, C.E.O of EntrepreNEWS.  He did so well by showing up to talk about this subject matter despite his busy schedule for same day. Thank you!
Other activities of the day were: donation of educational gift items to some best students from various classes, also donations of 50 copies of the ‘Faith to Kill’ movie donated to us by another friend of RSN -Mr. Femi Bolorunde (Actor/Producer).
Truly, we had SO much fun. It was such an exciting, educative moment. Huge appreciation to ALL Guest Speakers for ‘traveling’ the distance! We appreciate you. Special thanks also to Mrs. Taiye Faloju (Standard Chartered Bank). You are such an Angel. Thank you for sponsoring the event/refreshment. Thank you for your priceless support, always!
Kindly find attached some photographs. Happy Viewing..:)
P.S: Next School Outreach comes up in December.
Sincerely,

Excerpt from Tosin Taiwo's Facebook Page. 

So many things about the young man in this photograph, that inspires me. One of them? He believes I have solution to all of his academic home work! Aahh.



Interestingly, he is one of our sponsored children in high school who has been on sponsorship from nursery 2, till date! #terrificSponsors. God bless them. #Street2SchoolNG.

For every home work that he cannot solve. ScholarB would take the stress of walking down to my house with his 📚 books. He believes I am a genius. :D Hehehe. During his common entrance examination, maths was our favourite subject as weekends were set aside for problem solving. :)

Okay, It was going to be an interclass debate in his school today, and as one of the debaters..... ScholarB was around for hours yesterday, as we spent time developing points on why democratic governance is the best form of government. He is in JSS 1. Apparently, as shown in the photograph, (which was shot by my little one) lack of electrici…

The Transformed Health Centre

When we lost one of our pupils last year, it was a difficult thing to bear. Till date, the pain still lingers. 
She was only 7years and, I could remember that morning she was brought to my office, she complained of headache. We asked if she had eaten, she answered 'No'. So, we got her some meal. She ate and slept in my office, afterwards. No class for that day. No class. Sorry. 
That day, she was the last pupil to leave school for home as mama came pretty late to pick her. Mary was off school for some days. To cut the story short. Little Mary died some two weeks, thereafter.

When a child is sick, we don't just send them home anymore, as we aren't sure of how much medical care they would be given, due to lack in the home. So we ensure we follow through. We get the children into the nearest private clinic, where laboratory tests are conducted, and necessary drugs prescribed. Often times we have had the children admitted for days. We would wait patiently…
