PART ONE: Visit to Some Public Schools As Children Resume New Academic Term..

[I do not know why I have to write this update, [grins] however, a good part of me felt like expressing some thoughts and experience, so I hope you do enjoy..reading]

As I made a quick visit to some schools yesterday and today. It was so exciting to watch the children hop from one place to the other, some with tattered uniform yet with glowing smiles... others with so clean ones, looking so brightly coloured like the rainbow. They play together, walk around the compound and in some cases scream so loudly, having so much fun! [Oh mine. Someone here is missing her childhood times  it truly feels good to be a child, so free.. with little or nothing to worry about. Certainly, adulthood presents a totally different ball game;) totally DIFFERENT...with so many things to be serious about :/]. 
The look in the eyes of the kids was so inviting, and it suggests they have missed the environment so much, and have lots of catching up to do with their friends and teachers.
And, while I stood by the do…

Customised Notebooks for Children.

In preparation for the #BagSwap event which would take place in some days away...we have got ourselves two thousand copies of writing pads for children in rural communities who cannot afford some educational items.
At the #BagSwap event, we hope to distribute school bags, sandals, pencils, pens, crayon, notebooks for the needy kids. We do this to promote education and encourage the kids to stay in school. This is profitable than wandering on the streets..
Huge admiration to our friends and donors. Thank you, always!

Celebrating 5years of BAGSWAP Project.

Did you know that our first "BagSwap" project happened in 2008 and the first recipients were kids with hearing challenge (DEAF) in Ikotun, Lagos State. Yes! we had some good time with the kids,learning sign language, played football and ate some sweet jollof rice...hohohoho 

Then, this initiative was named -GKC Foundation.  The photograph (ALBUM) below illustrates it better..#PreciousMemories..

Preschool Cancelled In Osun State. Thumbs Up or Down?

Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State on.Tuesday said that his administration had cancelled pre-nursery in all government owned public schools in the state.

Aregbesola said this in Ila Orangun during interactive forum with the people in the area. The governor, who addressed the crowd in Yoruba, said that his administration decided to cancel the pre-nursery because it was wrong for mothers to dump their babies in schools in the name of building careers.

He said, " We have cancelled pre-nursery in all public schools. Babies in pre-nursery schools should be under their mothers' care and not in school. Mothers should take care of their babies until they are six years old.

"Children from six years of age to 18 will enjoy free and qualitative education, we are committed to giving our children qualitative education and we won't compromise on this."
The governor also said that his administration was working on a bill to make it mandatory for any civil servan…

[Letter To A Volunteer Youth Mentor..:)]

Dear Mentor,

This morning, we received a 'Thank YOU' phone call from your Mentee - a young lady. And she was surprised that you have doubled the monthly stipend that you pay her.. She was so filled with excitement and appreciation for your support since the past one year. To her, your support has been awesome. Unbelievable! Unimaginable! You came into the picture when her hope of pursuing a University Degree was lost due to financial struggles, because momma could never afford such luxury nor her late dadda. Already, there was so much at the homefront to take care of.. But now, it is a different story, as you have consistently mentored and supported her..into furthering her education. Now, she is a prospective Undergraduate in one of the Universities in Nigeria.. #‎FullScholarship .

Aside, supporting/mentoring her and other students. You have given so much commitment, time. And, we can only ask God to bless you more for all you do. Likewise our appreciation goes to every other…
