EFA: Bring the School Closer to the Home and Community

"If education for all must be achieved, we still firmly believe that ACCESSIBILITY is key. Bring the School Closer to The Home and Communities.." -Tosin

This morning, we did visit some schools (3) in preparation for our monthly free tutorial classes for high school students in rural communities and also for some school-based mentoring session. At the High Schools, we had some exciting time with the students, especially girls as we talked about issues that girls are faced with and how to combat the challenges.

While transiting from one school to the other, we decided to visit a local government primary school...in the community. This is one public primary school that serves EIGHT communities and the population in each classes are better imagined than seen.  There were some 80-100 children in each classes, from Nursery class to Primary six! This is definitely not a conducive environment to learn...as the classes are densely populated.

As an advocate for Quality Education and Education for all, I strongly believe that accessibility to education is still a paramount parameter to attaining the MDGs and #Post2015 goals. 

The establishment of more dependent schools cannot be over emphasised especially in rural communities and under served areas. It is a new year, and we are hopeful, that the government would consider this for the benefit of all. :)

PS: it waas impressive to see one of our donated items -Water Tank to the school. It's got our name inscribed..(Resource Sharing Network)!

Maybe, for lack of hospital in the community.
Maybe, for lack of adequate knowledge.
The parent resolved into spiritual intervention.
It must be a spiritual attack.

Today, I crrrriiieeed. Still tear-dropping.
I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.

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…

Thank You.
