National Newspaper Reports..

I have not done excellently yet —Taiwo

Tosin Taiwo is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the 'Street to School Initiative' (formerly known as the Resource Sharing Network). The NGO which focuses on sponsoring the education of the less privileged; especially the girl child, has over the years, afforded many secondary school students the opportunity of furthering their education into higher institutions. The NGO has also taken up the financial responsibility of some children in primary schools, as well as help some out of school children, get into the classroom. Taiwo's work has earned her several recognitions including the U.S Consul-General Award, as a fellow of the Carrington Youth Fellowship Initiative (CYFI), in 2013. She recently returned from the United States of American, where she was nominated to represent Nigeria in a two-week professional exchange program, tagged 'International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP)', a multi-regional project – sponsored by the U.S Department of States – focused on the role of NGOs in promoting global women issues. Taiwo shares her experience and future plans with UZEZI ADESITE. Excerpts:

Grade A Position.

For the first time after attending school for some two years, Basit Kamoru, one of our sponsored children could have grade A position in his class! This is a great improvement compared to when he started school and could not read the alphabets correctly nor write the numbers at 10 years old. But, now, he could  read and write, too! 

Now, that's d spirit! For every child can learn. We are inspired and motivated to reach out to more Basits and children out there who needs our support!

Please, donate to our cause. Let's reach out to more young people. Thank you!

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. ♥ ♥
