StreetWalk is a time to launch out to the street, to identify with out of school children. This exercise is usually done DURING school hours when other kids have gone to school, already.

Meeting With Parents of Sponsored Kids
Our first meeting this year with parents of sponsored kids
was held last week Friday. Sad…
In 2009, we kicked off our first social program tagged Youth Mentoring Youth. It was out first program ever as a non governmental organisation whose objective is to improve on the academic performance of high school students through mentorship. Excitedly, we have over 60 going professionals and mature adults sign up yo mentor high school students through our platform.
One of such amazing volunteer mentors, was Mr. Tunde as shown in the attached Photographs. He was paired with young Farouq, as shown in the Photograph too!
Well, It has been 10years since we paired them, and officially closed the Mentoring scheme. However, the bond between both of them keeps growing stronger.
We Recreated this Photograph of One of Our Sponsored Children In Other Schools, Today.
SWIPE to See If There is Any Difference in the two photographs....While we wait for you to guess the year interval.
Bose Lives With Her Single Mum, with hearing disability. And, One Of The Ways We Thought We Could Help Momma Was By Empowering Our Friend Through Education Sponsorship. At Present, Our Little One is In Basic 4.

2018: We Got More Kids In Our Care To Serve. Still Serving Them😇😇 #Street2SchoolNG #10YearsChallenge
Today, we had two of our sponsored kids visit us. And, while one of them transited from elementary school to neighbouring High School last year, the other, transited two years ago.
They are two of the twenty two previously out of school children that have successfully transited to high school.
As an organisation that promotes quality education for all, regardless of the circumstance. We believe in the dream of every child.
So today, we are thankful for impactful #partnerships and support received.

THANK YOU NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER, TOSIN OLOWOYEYE-TAIWO.
Stumbling on these pictures this morning brings back load of memories. Wow! This was in 2013 during the Walter Carrington Youth Fellowship Award Program at the C.G's residence.
The recognition and award was LEAST expected, as I was too focused on getting the project done in good time, and lives, impacted. This day, walking to the podium was the biggest challenge. I could literarily feel the ground cracking up😆😆 Lol. If you still don't know, I am a very shy person.... 😊😎.
Today, I am SO thankful for every giant whose shoulder has been a standing point for me to see further. You are kind. Absolutely!
Thank you for believing in this girl's dream. Last year, I could remember how Mrs. @Adesola Ayo-aderele sent her undergraduate daughter to intern with us. Then, she brought some two more of her colleagues. Till date, their commitment towards community service and impact driven lifestyle would always be remembered.
