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.
