Every Child Counts.


This picture shows one of our 'sponsored' girls in front of her residence. She's got a cute smile, right?.

She desired to go to school, and got her desire met. Thanks to her sponsor -Mrs A. She showed up at a good time. Thank you. Special shout out to all..

Unfortunately, not every child like our young friend gets their request granted. Today, I remember with deep sense of empathy, another young friend...whose guardian wouldn't let us have her, because she has been 'bought' with a price.

 'Oh well, I have paid for her service, already and can't afford to release her to attend any school, now. She got so many things to do for me' says her guardian! Woowow! I was shocked by her response. (Abeg na who send me o. Thank God she didn't pour hot water on my head. lol). This was one little girl that hawks from morning till evening. You needed to see the heavy 'goods' she carries to sell on the street! She was one very strong 9 year old girl. My interaction with her instigated the eventual visit to her abode. And, I had to drive down that evening. smh. Sadly, all efforts to convince her guardian of the importance of granting her wishes, failed. It's been some months, already. And, I don't see my little friend anymore... #FateOfCotonouChildren#Maid

Another, was the youngest 'vulcaniser' I have ever met... I wouldn't forget him in a jiffy, too. His desire was ALMOST granted..until, ]>*#_:@-;'".,!)T.

God bless them wherever they are, granting their wishes...!

I believe in every child is an iota of potential, waiting to be explored.

Show me an out-of-school child, and I would show you a child with dreams, and great aspiration, too.#EveryChildCanLearn#EveryChildDeservesAChance

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…

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…
