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!

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…
