JAKES: An Evident of Impact.
Jakes *not real name, was 10 years old when he joined us in 2015. He could not read, write nor was he good at numeracy. He had repeated classes several times while in public school and, his mum had literally given up on him. He was in Basic 3. So, we took him in with open arms.
Yesterday, we were pleasantly surprised when his mum showed up very early in the morning at the school (attached photograph). Not to request for a thing. But, to say a BIG thank you to all the teachers for the evident impact on Jakes . Now, he's greatly improved in his subjects and can now read, write. He's got one of the best teachers. Thank you United Parcel Service for the seed grant in kicking off this initiative in 2015. Thank you Ms. Taiye Faloju, Mrs. Patricia Igbokwe, Mr. Odewale Olaniyi, Mr. Efosa Obazee, Mr. Teslim Belo-Osagie, Mr. Tunde Majiyagbe, Mrs. Toroti, Mrs. Tolulope, Mrs. Damoye, Mrs. Adesike, Mrs. Falstrom, Mr. Kenny, Don McBurney, Ms. Kehinde Adebiyi, Mrs. Akinlade, Ms, Kujenya Joke, Mrs. Toyin, Mr. Chike, and everyone, too numerous to mention. Thank you all SO much for believing in our school cause. We would not have been able to do all we do without your concerted effort. You are incredibly awesome. Thank you.

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.
Dear Friends,Today, we would be on "Amazons on Radio" show on Classic FM Radio. And, we invite you to kindly tune in by 4:00pm to listen to us, as we shall be discussing Out of School Children.Once again, we wish to thank everyone of you for being there. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, kind wishes, prayers, donations and huge support to the cause of children from extremely low income earning families. Thank you very much.
