Haven: Place of Refuge, Safety!

 

"At 8 years, Ibrahim is just learning to write Numbers and Alphabets as shown in the photograph attached while Kolade and his brother stopped schooling since 2013 due to lack of funding. etc"*

*Today, we welcome the 23rd child into our learning centre -Haven Schools,** a
non-profit school, strictly for vulnerable, out-of-school children in Ikola Odunsi Community, Alimosho.** We truly wouldn't have been able to do this so swiftly without the timely support received from our Sponsor -UPS. Huge appreciation, always!*

Tomorrow, 19th of May, we would be having meeting with guardians, parents of the children. PS: Haven Schools is a non-paying school for vulnerable, out-of-school children. Teachers salaries are paid from donations received while we hope to get sponsors for most of the children as soon as new academic term begins in September.

To Sponsor a Child in Haven Schools would cost N20,000 per term, this would cover textbooks, notebooks, uniform, cardigan and sometimes lunch!

Our Wishlist: Computer Systems, Chairs and Desks and a BLUE BOX!!

For support, kindly contact us at: rsnnigeria@ gmail.com!

Thank you always for being our Friend, Child Sponsor, Mentor, and Donor.

We Never Fully Understood...

...We understand she stays with her granny. Yesterday, granny brought her to our learning centre so she could learn. And, so today, we were going to ask her a few questions (interview) so we could know what class to put her. After a brief introduction...and question about her level of education, we asked about her momma...there was a tear-drop...'she is dead'. Then, about her father...her eyes were soaked, already. He is dead, too. I feel so touched. Now, I wish we never asked her. That was the end of our interview session with her. [Memorable Moment At Our learning centre, today, 12th May, 2015]
