This exciting conversation happened some hours ago. And, I could remember our first meeting with this young man.

It was at a barber's shop some 4 years ago where he was an apprentice! He'd dropped out of school due to lack of fund. He was in JSS 3.

His peculiar story plunged us into action, immediately. As one of my Mentors (Dr. Titi Akinlade) volunteered to sponsor his education. #SpecialAdmiration to all Sponsors­čĺ»

Outstanding school debts for 3 years was paid for. New school fees, checked! Uniform, Textbooks, Notebooks, Back Pack, Sandals etc were all adequately provided.

In 2016, we had an high school graduate, who passed his #WAEC exams brilliantly. #Glory

#NowThis: 
We don't do all we do for accolades. No. 
We don't share stories like this for likes. Absolutely not. ☺
We are only persuaded that there are many young men and women out there who need a little push to stand tall on their two feet.

We are persuaded that education shouldn't be a priviledge but right of every child, regardless.

Thank you to everyone who sees this bigger picture with us.

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.
