Merry Christmas!


Our Wishes for You

Over the last eleven months, we have engaged ourselves in some exciting projects in the communities. For example, for three terms, wpaid the school bills of some 15 children in private schools. We did sponsor 15 less priviledged students to register for the 2014 GCE and WAEC exams, we conducted Career Seminars for over 600 High School students. During Summer, we coordinated Computer Training programs for disadvantaged young people/girls in rural communities. We donated educational items to more than 800 children in rural schools. Yes, we raised some emergency funding to so we could clear our donated items and consignment from Denmark for the children, And, next week again, we would be having the grand finale project: Christmas on the Street, for vulnerable children! Interestingly, we would not have been able to do all we do without your support for the children.

All we want to say is T H A N K Y O U. Thank you for the children.

in 2015, we look forward to your partnership and continuous support. Thank you for ensuring with us that NO CHILD IS LEFT BEHIND in formal education. Thank you SO much for your sponsorship and support.

May the Year Ahead be Pleasant and Prosperous for YOU. May God Bless You and Meet Your Desires and Aspirations. And, May Your Efforts Be Duly Rewarded. Thank you, once again. God Bless.

Happy New Year in Advance.


Respectfully,

13Days to Year-End! Thank YOU.

A Thank You Note From Tosin Taiwo 
 

Growing up...as a child, I remember how much I love to keep to myself and would not want to bother anyone with a request for help. I just don't like the idea of 'bothering' people, maybe. I love to observe more than interact...**well, I feel i am still very guilty of this, though** smh. :)

 
 It's been some years now in the non-profit sector, and, we have been advocating for formal education for all children, regardless of the circumstance....however, in my widest imagination, I never knew 'bothering' people would be one of the skills I would have to develop. #fundraising4change.
 
Huge appreciation and admiration to all amazing friends on and off Facebook who have been supportive and responsive to our requests for vulnerable children and women. I wish I could tag you all...yes, you and you and YOU. Thank you. Truly, "One could only chase a thousand, but 2 would put ten thousand to flight.."
 
 It's some 13 days to the end of year 2014. And, on behalf of all the children whom we have supported, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to you our friends for your massive understanding and support. We can't thank you enough. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for being there. Just some weeks ago, one of the students whom we sponsored to write the GCE examination in 2009 graduated from the University. It was humbling reading his message of appreciation. yes, this is our desire. #ThankGod.
  
...what if every child got equal opportunity to education regardless of the circumstance? It's possible and we would keep driving at this, ensuring that every child lives a purpose-driven, fulfilled life given to them by God. 
 
 
****For every child deserves a chance..****

A Girl's #ChristmasWish

#Girl #Education

In this part of the world, it's almost a tradition for the Girl-Child to defer her admission into Higher Institution JUST because mama couldn't pay school bills for more than one children at once, hence, the bigger brother, especially would get the PASS mark to further his education, while the girl child seats at home, keeping hope alive!!!!

This evening, a lovely young friend and victim of such situation came a-visiting... Kemi attended our last summer computer training program for young people in rural community some months back!

Interestingly, she's written and passed her WAEC, JAMB and Post-JAMB exams. And, she's been offered admission to study Mass Communication in two different Polytechnic: Kwara State Poly and MKO Abiola Poly.

Sadly, Kemi has been told to seat back!!!! while her BIG brother who also got an admission to study Accountancy, furthers his career ambition!!! I am so so uncomfortable with this tradition. Aarrrgh.

Already, Kemi has lost one of the admissions, however, she got just few more days to ACT, else, the Second admission would slip off.

Her #ChristmasWish is to get a Sponsor, so she could pay the Acceptance Fee of N25,500 and School Fees N54,800.

Any Sponsor in the House, please? Her number: +2348161136164. Thanks, Thanks!

Education: The Miles, The Sacrifice.


Yesterday, we had a rural-walk, visiting another rural community where accessibility to school is so poor, such that children have to walk many miles, crossing this wooden bridge..which leads from one community/State to the other. 

Accessibility is Key to attaining education4all, absolutely. We need more schools...

Meanwhile, Congrats to our friend in the ***middle*** of first pics who has been registered for the next West African Examination for Senior Secondary School Students...

Breaking


**One of the breaking news you could give to a sponsored child is to tell him or her that "for certain reasons, your sponsor is not going to be there any more until we get another"... Sometimes, it is so hard to tell, but you got to tell it anyway...they got to know, too *** It could be breaking.
