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.
