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?
"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!
