Deadline for the online registration of the 2013 GCE is only 2 days away... and, we have sponsored 9 students, already... despite the fact that the examination fee for this year was pretty expensive. (N10, 500 per child). We do express our profound gratitude to God for the opportunity and to all our friends and sponsors for the push-ups. Thank you so very much.PS: The GCE Sponsorship Scheme is a branch of the RSN -Education Sponsorship Scheme. It got started in year 2010...when we sponsored Twenty One (21) students. In 2011...we sponsored nine (9)...In 2012 we did sponsor seventeen (17) and here again...we have nine promising young people...ready to take the examinations. We wish them the best preparation..and results.Thank you our friends.. May God bless the works of your hands, always... :#EveryPennyCountsIn the main news, one of our Street2School kids (SADIQ) has received DOUBLE promotion, from Nursery 1 - Primary 1...instead of Nursery 2. He got an aggregate of 95.8%.Do have a great week, our Friend...

It is a very cool evening from here. We are hoping that you had a fantastic day at work, too! Thank you for all you do for young people. Truly, we would not have been able to achieve much without your great support. It means so much to us all, Thank you. God Bless you, always!
Just A Quick Update, Please
Thus far, we have registered 9 (qualified) less privileged students for the 2013 GCE. And, we have one slot left. Our zillion thanks to YOU -Mr. S.A & Mrs. ‘Anonymous’ for the huge Support! It makes a whole lot of difference.
Tomorrow, some of our sponsored kids would be having their End-of-Session party. We hope to send you some update. Interestingly, one of them is in the drama group.. We just learnt that little Blessing would be acting the role of a Nurse tomorrow! Woohooo!! :D
PS: Blessing is the 5years Old little girl who got a Sponsor (Mr. Belo) some few months back.
Perhaps this might interest you too that, Basit –the pioneer beneficiary of our Primary Education Sponsorship Scheme would be moving to Primary 2! He is no longer the 10year old boy in Nursery 2. How time flies, really…J Already, we have received a note from his School Management that we’ve got a total bill of N69, 100 (School Fees + Textbooks + Notebooks + Summer School + Christmas Party) for his next class.
We got the following mail this afternoon from a potential Sponsor and we thought it good enough to share…with you.
I made a covenant with God to sponsor a child if i get a summer job and yes i got not just 1 but 2 summer jobs. I know how it feels not to be able to pay ones fees or go to school. I have been there myself it was friends and the church that paid my fees and saw me through school at a point prostitution was almost the only optional. Anyway that is a story for another day.
Thanks for your prayers…
As a New Academic begins in few weeks time, we are hoping to get more Sponsors for our kids…It’s “One Child-One Sponsor” and we encourage Sponsors to support a child’s education for at least two years for the child’s stability. Pls, let us know if you would be willing to be a Child’s Sponsor, too. We have got some kids on our waiting list. We need Sponsors.
Thank you, everyone for all you do.

SENATOR AHMED SANI YARIMAN BAKURA REPLIES HIS ENEMIES
In Islam, marriage is not only about sex, it is about family and helping one another in achieving their goals, which is the attainment of Paradise.
In Islam, a girl can be given out in marriage as early as 6 years old, but consummation of the marriage can only be done when the girl becomes physically mature and she gives her consent to it because unlike English law, it is not permissible for a man to rape his wife in Shari'ah Law.
So what can anybody tell me?
~ I live in a City where primary school children disvirgin themselves behind toilets on Valentine day.
~ I live in a city where young girls flood the street at night looking for men that would give them N500 to have sex with them.
~ I live in a city where parents send their daughters out overseas to prostitute and send dollars down.
~ I live in a City where Government officials pick undergraduates from University car parks with Coastal Buses to wild sex parties.
~ I live in a city where abortion is so common that even a Chemist shore owner can perform abortion with just N2,500.
These are your daughters, and this should worry you and not Yerima's private matters. So ask me again why I support early marriage and I will slap the Jinn out of your head''.
- Senator Ahmad Sani Yarima
Maybe, it is not enough for him to tell us HOW girls behave in his city. He needs to tell us WHY they behave the way they do..as this would help proferr necessary solution to the moral decadence in HIS city...and NOT compound it. Already, there are 800,000 suffering from Vesicovaginal fistula. This is epidemic and not a national pride. Let's save young people, let us save ourselves. As age of 9,10 etc aren't suitable for marriage! They are Kids, Not Brides #ChildNotBride

We enroll kids in Private Schools for some quality education. And the estimated
School Bill for A full Academic Session (One year) is N100, 000 or $670. This could be split out per term (N35, 000) per term. We encourage sponsors to sponsor a child for at least the first two years, as this would assist the child's concentration and stability. Pls let us know if you would love to sponsor a child.. Thank you!
For further information and sponsorship details kindly send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

... Last year, a lady came to us; she was practically a 'house-help' with a family in Lagos. And, she was so desirous to write the examination last year. She didn't mind the distance to our office...she came down with her Madam's 3-4year-old baby. At first, we felt reluctant because it seems she had her hands filled already.
On Friday, listening to her speak was so inspiring.. exciting... Yes! She made her outstanding papers in the exam and now an undergraduate student (Part-time) in Yaba College of Technology.
This morning, we had a 17years old young man visit us at the Resource Centre.. He needed to know if we could get him the GCE form, also! From our conversation, this is one young man who was moved from a high-brow private school to a public one some years ago when Daddy lost his job...and, eventually his dad died some weeks back. At such a young age, he looks strong, courageous despite the loss of loved one.. However, the inspiring thing about him is his faith, he said.. "I don't have anything to say, but to thank God".
Truly, we have met with thousands of students...but, there's so much about this guy that inspires. He is e x c e p t I o n a l l y different. He is intelligent. Well knowledgeable. Confident. Courageous. Willing to climb the academic ladder which his father couldn't climb...despite a Master Degree Holder. Young Caleb talked about the academic height his father aspired to gain...but couldn't. Some research works begging to be published etc... He aspires to do much more. We see a great mind in a young body.. #PerfectlyPurposeDriven. J
Okay, what if we have a greater percentage of our youths with such mind...seeing challenges as stepping stones, pressing on, regardless? Just thinking out loud..:). All these truly motivate us to reach out to more young people...they need it.
On Wednesday 10th day of July, we shall be hosting High School students of Estate Grammar School, Oke-Isagun, Alimosho Area to a Career Talkshow & Passing Examination Tips... Interestingly, we have got Mr. Teslim Belo-Osagie the Head Client Coverage Generalists, Standard Chartered Bank as our Chief Guest Speaker…with other terrific RSN Friends.
Thank YOU everyone for your Extremely Valuable Support.
It has been awesome. Absolutely!
God bless you. Amen.
