Notable Dates. Notable Changes. Gracias

On 20th of September, 2012. We did share a mail with you, about a young barber who
dropped out of school due to some outstanding school bills. Eventually, we got some money to support him back to school, but not without
paying/clearing all of his outstanding school bills from JSS 1 - JSS 3.
Emmanuel was enrolled into SSS 1 class, as shown in the attached pics.

In April 2016. It's exciting to see Emmanuel successfully graduate from high school -WAEC done, dusted. Attached herewith is a photograph of him when he visited our office recently. Huge admiration and appreciation to everyone who made this possible. Thank you.

Other photograph attached shows one of our pioneer Youth Mentors -Ms. Joke Kujenya (An Investigative Journalist with The NATION). She visited our school today, to meet with the children! A pleasant surprise...
Just a bit more on Ms. JK. 
On February 3rd, 2012, Ms. JK as she is fondly called was paired with an high school student, a young boy, whose career aspiration was to  be a Journalist! Now, after several years of meet ups and mentorship. Her mentee, Segun is an undergraduate of Mass Communication, also, he has been priviledged to have his internship in one of the media houses recommended by his mentor. - Ms JK. He's published several stories in the daily newspaper. etc. Yesterday was a special day for Segun (his only sister weds!) and Ms. JK found time to share in the moment with him and his family. It's really a BIG thank you to everyone who's got our back. We appreciate you.

In celebration of Children's Day & Helpers Academy @ ONE, on May 26th, we shall be having CAREER WORKSHOP as all the children are expected to dress 'professionally' in clothes of their prospective career path. Please, let us know if you would love to be our guest speaker on May 26th!

We need Doctors, Lawyers, Journalists, Engineers, Bankers, Nurses etc. We need you to support us.

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.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…

Thank You.
