Mentors Bond So Well With Their Mentee

It was her first time. Her first time to be on video call, chatting so excitedly with her mentor who is in faraway, Denmark while she lives in Lagos, Nigeria.

Praise, as she is fondly called is an High School student in one of the target rural schools where Street2School Initiative coordinates a 6-month mentoring program tagged PROJECT25 for girls in rural high schools. And, for the past four months, some 25 High School Girls in rural communities have been paired with 25Mentors across the globe. Young girls, who despite the challenges they face each day to staying in school still have some great future ambitions. They want to be accountant, medical personnels, bankers etc.

As an organization, our sole aim is to support the education programs of disadvantaged young people, especially the girl child. And, aside education sponsorship programs, we coordinate an annual youth mentoring scheme and empowerment schemes for vulnerable women and mothers of children whom we sponsor..

Today, Praise like other girls have been paired with amazing individuals who have volunteered to mentor, direct and be a 'BIG' Sister. They have bonded so well with their mentors through a scheduled weekly e-mentoring at our Resource Centre.

As the Women History Month ends, our shout out goes to every BIG sister we have got ourselves! Thank you for sharing, caring and volunteering. Thank you for being our Mentor.

....Mentor A Child, Touch A Life. ♥ ♥

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…
