No Child Goes Hungry.

#JustSharing
In 2015 when this scholar (attached pics) joined us with his elder brother, all he could speak was Hausa language! Not a single sentence in English. Babu turanshi. They had moved to Lagos from Maiduguri due to BokoHaram insurgency, they lost their home... And, while their dad came to Lagos with two boys, no news about their mother's whereabout with other children till date.

These two young scholars joined us, with little to NO literacy nor numeracy knowledge. It was a difficult beginning for everyone of us as we had no translator! Lol.
This morning, guess who spoke fluent English to me while seated in this corner?!? Omg. I was transfixed. Elated. My heart bursting with enormous joy. Truly, #EveryChildCanLearn #EveryChildDeservesAchance.

Meanwhile, one of our goals this year is to get a better school environment. We want to move...  The population is increasing despite how much we scrutinise new intake. Every week, more children show up with their parents. Sadly, we can't admit all especially due to our present resources. Moreso, our present school structure is under HIGH TENSIONS. Although there are several buildings on this path, however, it isn't a good environment. We need to move. We need support. We need your help. More details shall be shared on this soon.
The attached pictures show children during lunch break, today.


Again, Special Thank You to friends who birthed the feeding Idea... Every Tuesday and Thursday NO child goes hungry, again. Thaaaank you, friends.

#Sponsors are reminded of their protégées' school fees, We have Basit, Tope, Bose, Mubarak, Abiodun, Esther etc...school bills to pay, please. #ThankYou

She was only 7+years old.

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.
