Our Christmas Wish: Posts From Facebook Updates...


































































































































On 20th of August, we had a publication of our story in the PUNCH newspaper. Read story here

Immediately after the publication... We got phonecalls from the Lagos State Government Public Advice Centre, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Youth and Social Development, Ministry of Health etc. Thereafter, we visited them to discuss the community challenges and how much we need the government to intervene in provision of basic social amenities for the populace.


Our requests were just..2: 
Provision of Health Centre and School for the community. Yeah, just 2 ;)


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On 23rd of September, we had a surprise visit of Senior Officials from the Ministry of Local Goverment Affairs. Woohoo! They came to our office, thereafter we toured the community... for some physical need assessment... Importantly, we showed them an abandoned MDG project, a health facility that was constructed some 4-5 years ago, but unused. :(


Also, we visited our 'make-shift' school for less priviledged children in the community etc.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After their visitation. We got to know that some other officials came visiting, to inspect the abandoned MDG health facility, also.

Interestingly, after some weeks, precisely November 12th, the health centre came ALIVE...for the first time in 5years!

Today, as we visited the centre, it was such a delight to watch as mothers with their children come into the clinic for some medical care. There were free treated nets for mothers, immunization procedures for children etc.

As we await the government to fully equip the centre, we wouldn't back down until our voices are heard, and heard clearly.

Every Child Counts...!

On our 2 request (school establishment for the concerned community)

We were told to go get a landed property by liasing with the community heads, LCDA chairman, 'Baale' etc. Ofcourse we have done this severally and the feedback is "we are sorry, there are no available land for schools, except you BUY one.." Woohoo! It's really sad that a community as huge as this in Alimosho LG does not have a public school.

So the search for a VERY affordable landed property to use as school for the children in this community, continues... Pray with us, maybe we could get one as Christmas gift. *smiles* Yeah! We need one so awful. As our number keeps growing, and there are more out-of-school children who need to get back to school to learn.




These photographs were shot, this morning. And, it's a big shout out from all of us to you all.

Once again, our heart-felt gratitude to all our friends and those who's got our back. God got yours, too. Thank YOU! God Bless.

Excerpt from Tosin Taiwo's Facebook Page. 

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…

The Transformed Health Centre

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…
