As John Oloyede Graduates...
Whilst we all prepare for a new week, ahead. We thought it would be nice to share with you a few update.
Primary School Graduation
Excitedly this month, one of our sponsored children, John Oloyede would be graduating from primary school. It’s such a swell moment for him. Special thanks to his sponsor, Mr. Olayemi Yemmsy for having his back and paying up his bills till date. Thank you so much, sir. We appreciate you. Attached herewith is John’s photograph. You remember him? J He was the young man who dropped out of school at primary 4 and had been out of school for some 12 months, living in an uncompleted building.
Registration of Haven Schools:
Last month, we did commence the registration exercise of Haven schools with the Corporate Affairs Commission. Hopefully, this week, we look forward to the result on the availability of the name for our use.
At present, our website, street2school.ng and the associated email address have been deactivated. This is because we have refused to renew the subscription rate, which entails a monthly recurring bill of $ 5 for email subscription and an annual bill of $ 140 for domain renewal. Unfortunately, we weren't well informed about these expenses by the web developer, from the onset. We have paid this bill until last two months!! Now, we hope to get a more cost effective, better deal.
According to government directive, all schools are expected to vacate, next week. Hence, we shall be rounding off this academic term with the Prize Giving Ceremony on Friday July 17th, 2015! Thanks to everyone for the magnanimous support. We appreciate you, and also cordially invite you all to the prize giving ceremony for the children! Date: 17th July. Time: 10:00am. To support with gift items, donation? Kindly call Praise on 07066274529. Thanks Mrs Taiye for this:here
GCE Sponsorship Scheme
The 2015 GCE sponsorship exercise would commence immediately after we have conducted qualifying test for the applicants on July 23rd, already we have some 25 applicants.
Thank you everyone. Do have a blessed week. We ask God in His abundance to bless you abundantly for all you do for the disadvantaged children.
She was only 7+years old.
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.
Mary couldn't move again.
Yesterday, Mary died in the church.
Where her parent had taken her to.
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.
