Opemipo Wishes to Go Back To School.

9 years  old Opemipo stopped attending school last year when her guardian could not pay her accumulated school fees of N16,500. While other children go to school every weekdays, Opemipo stays at home, playing with her sister, who is an out-of-school girl, also! 

In rural community, there is a growing statistics of out of school children, due to lack of government-owned schools which are usually free and very affordable. From our observation and interaction with school proprietresses, private school owners, parents in the community, we realised that children who 'struggle' to attend private schools in the community tend to drop out of these schools after some few academic term and either move on to another school to continue the cycle or stay completely out of school. This is due to lack of funding to meet up with  accumulating school bills. 


Opemipo and her 2siblings are examples of such children who had to drop out of private schools after some terms due to accumulated school bills which their guardian cannot afford, anymore. 

Opemipo wishes to go back to school so she could register for her examinations in preparation for high school next year. 

Opemipo needs a Sponsor, so does her sister! To meet with Opemipo and sponsor her? Kindly send a mail to info@street2school.ng

She fell ill 2weeks ago.
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.

Yesterday, Mary died in the church.

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.
