Children We Work With...

So yesterday, we had 3 children joined us in the school. #2Girls! #1Boy aged 7-10.  They have been out of school for some time, until today. Initially, dadda wouldn't want them to go, because there was literally no food in the house or fund to buy their necessary materials. Not a problem. I muttered. So, after much persuation, and assurance that their bill, breakfast + lunch for today was on us, we got them. (Y) (Y) (Y) #QED.

Last week, a mother met us on our way to school, she informed about the 'newest' girl in our school...and, in her words " school private ni omo yen n lo tele, sugbon ati igba ti mummy e ti iku recently, ko si eni to ounso owo school fees e mo. So, we decided to bring her to your school" (Translation : She used to go to a pricey private school before, however since her mum died, no one could afford to pay her bills, so we decided to bring her to your school.)

What about the dad?
I inquired.

"Aagburo daddy e mo tipe." She says.

(Translate: We have not heard from the dad for a long time.)

 It's a good thing, a privilege to have a safe place, a haven, a school where such girls would have the opportunity to learn. I thought.

We are taking education to every door step. It's a journey, and we are happy to have taken the first few steps.... #HelpersAcademy #Street2SchoolInitiative #PraiseReport #ChildrenWeWorkWith!

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…
