Close of 2015 GCE Sponsorship Scheme

On the 22nd of August, we concluded the 2015 GCE Sponsorship Exercise, with 23 beneficiaries (14 female & 9 male) from Ogun and Lagos states. We had over 50 applicants, and, mock examination in English and Mathematics were conducted with series of interviews. [P.S: Our targets were basically disadvantaged young people who were SSS 3 school drop-outs or post secondary school students who aspire to write the examination, thereby taking a closer step to their  career aspiration.]

Huge thanks to Mr. S.A, Ms. Funmi Fadare, Mr. Emmanuel Isibor and Mr. Anonymous who donated a total sum of N266, 800. The donations received were in the order: N232,000, N11,600, N11,600, N11,600 respectively, and this was used to purchase the e-cards at N11,600 (bank rate) per student.

Once again, our huge appreciation to our Donors. Thank you for doing this for the less priviledged young people. We appreciate your kind gestures as we look forward to your magnanimous support again in 2016!  Gracias..
