We remember meeting Taofeek 's widowed mum some 2-3 years back. She's heard about our Sponsorship programs and would want us to assist two of her out-of-high-school children back to school. They needed to write the West African Senior School Certificate Examination. She pleaded passionately..
Atlas, we registered the 2 children separately for the 2012/13 WASSCE and 2013 GCExamination. Thereafter, Mama sponsored them to register for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination -UTME. Then, we lost touch for some 8months.
This afternoon, mama called in to inform us that her two boys have successfully gained admission to study Science and Engineering-related courses at the Polytechnic. She was happy, thankful to all...
Interestingly, we do remember one of mama's initial questions...."Do you sponsor Muslim students?
"....Every child deserves a chance, regardless.." *winks*
