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.

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…
