Our Dilemma. Call For Help. We are Moving.

  Dear Sir/Ma,

We are hoping that this mail meets you in good health. Thank you so much for all you do for poor children in under-served communities.

A Quick Recap
Two years ago, through your support we were able to meet the educational needs of some out-of-school children in a community where accessibility to government owned school is poor, and private schools, unaffordable due to lack.  We established a non-profit school to serve the community children amongst whom are vulnerable kids, orphans and house maid. We have grown from 3 kids to 120 scholars. We have donated textbooks, and provided other basic educational needs, and at present, they are served lunch, twice in a week. Fully sponsored by some of you! Thank YOU.

Our Dilemma
We have been fine, until on Monday afternoon, 20th of March.
There was boisterous wind and rainstorm. It shattered homes in the community. Wrecked structures. Deaths recorded of pregnant women and a bike rider. Our scholars' homes were affected as shown in attached photographs which was captured during our visit. Our classrooms flooded, books destroyed and extension classrooms, caved in. It was devastating.

Our Plan
We aspire to move the school to a safer environment, and, not close to high tensions as we presently have it. We hope to support families of our scholars affected. Almost all of the buildings close to it, were destroyed, and death recorded. We believe with your support, we can help give the children a better learning space.
We have reopened our gofundme page, for online donation. Kindly support....Every kobo counts and would be accounted for..Our Total Budget is N14,921,000

To donate in kind, please call YOMI 08067609794. Or send donation to Street to School Initiative GTBank, 0162126614. Donated items would be distributed according to affected families and every progressive update/report sent to you.

If we do not take these steps, some children aspirations may be truncated, and hope for formal education, dashed. Already, many of the affected families have contacted us, as an NGO for help. Your support during this time of need would be appreciated by the children, their parents and everyone of us.

Thank you in anticipation.

Maybe, for lack of hospital in the community.
Maybe, for lack of adequate knowledge.

It must be a spiritual attack.

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.
