*Today, we welcome the 23rd child into our learning centre -Haven Schools,** a
non-profit school, strictly for vulnerable, out-of-school children in Ikola Odunsi Community, Alimosho.** We truly wouldn't have been able to do this so swiftly without the timely support received from our Sponsor -UPS. Huge appreciation, always!*

We Never Fully Understood...

...We understand she stays with her granny. Yesterday, granny brought her to our learning centre so she could learn. And, so today, we were going to ask her a few questions (interview) so we could know what class to put her.

The long history of abuse of this category of chil­dren is an open secret in the country. The question had always been when the country would rise in the defence of these vulnerable children? Thank God, a reprieve has finally come their way. To be sure, the situation has always been a complicated one. The exigen­cies of modern living and the rise in the incidence of working mot…

Nursery rhyme we sang..
Five little monkeys jumping on the bed,  One fell off and bumped his head.  Mama called the Doctor and the Doctor said,  "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!'.
