Unique Coincidence..with Photographs.

Tosin Writes…

After leaving the clinic today with some 'mixed feelings', unhappy. I decided to make some official transaction, by taking a trip to one of the authorized banks to purchase the GCE form for our  intended less-priviledged young people, as we would be issuing the forms out to potential beneficiaries, next week.

While at the bank, there came in a young man, Victor with his mum to purchase the GCE form, also! The mama looks fragile, having one of her hands, bandaged, with a piece of jacket covering it.

We waited patiently for the bank official to attend to us, together.

Eventually, it was Victor and his mama's turn to make the purchase, while, I waited for our receipt of transaction. Unfortunately, the bank official would not attend to Victor because mama had N7, 000 instead of N11, 600 for the purchase! She tried so much to explain to the bank official why she had insufficient funding, explaining her ordeals, and how Victor could not register for the 2015 WASSCE/WAEC with his colleagues earlier this year, still, because she could not afford the fee. Her story was touching, with tears in her eyes, I listened up.

Disappointedly, the bank official told mama, that there was nothing he could do to help …'well, what a great coincidence, as Street to School official, like me, was present!  This is our student, the kind of young people we seek to support', I thought. Eventually, I had a conversation with mama and son, assuring them of our sponsorship.  She least expected it, she was stunned, and SO appreciative. The smile on her face was enough to swiftly translate my initial mixed feeling to a happy moment. She expressed unspeakable joy..

On Monday, we would be giving Victor alongside other young people, the GCE e-cards for registration. Once again, our profound gratitude to YOU our sponsors for making this possible.  Thank you Mr. A.O, Ms. Funmi Fadare, Mr. Emmanuel and Mr. A. Thank you for doing this. Thank you SO much for rekindling hope.

We appreciate you all. God bless.

PS: Photographs attached show Victor, his mum and Tosin Taiwo.

So many things about the young man in this photograph, that inspires me. One of them? He believes I have solution to all of his academic home work! Aahh.



Interestingly, he is one of our sponsored children in high school who has been on sponsorship from nursery 2, till date! #terrificSponsors. God bless them. #Street2SchoolNG.

For every home work that he cannot solve. ScholarB would take the stress of walking down to my house with his 📚 books. He believes I am a genius. :D Hehehe. During his common entrance examination, maths was our favourite subject as weekends were set aside for problem solving. :)

Okay, It was going to be an interclass debate in his school today, and as one of the debaters..... ScholarB was around for hours yesterday, as we spent time developing points on why democratic governance is the best form of government. He is in JSS 1. Apparently, as shown in the photograph, (which was shot by my little one) lack of electrici…

When we lost one of our pupils last year, it was a difficult thing to bear. Till date, the pain still lingers. 
She was only 7years and, I could remember that morning she was brought to my office, she complained of headache. We asked if she had eaten, she answered 'No'. So, we got her some meal. She ate and slept in my office, afterwards. No class for that day. No class. Sorry. 
That day, she was the last pupil to leave school for home as mama came pretty late to pick her. Mary was off school for some days. To cut the story short. Little Mary died some two weeks, thereafter.

When a child is sick, we don't just send them home anymore, as we aren't sure of how much medical care they would be given, due to lack in the home. So we ensure we follow through. We get the children into the nearest private clinic, where laboratory tests are conducted, and necessary drugs prescribed. Often times we have had the children admitted for days. We would wait patiently…
