NGO Funds 1,000 drop-outs back to school
A Non Governmental Organization Dreams from the Slum Initiative in partnership with Transform a Life Initiative have funded at least 1,000 children back to classrooms.
The project tagged; ‘Back to School’ recorded huge successes in Lagos, Delta and Kogi States.
Speaking on its impact, Omoyele Success, founder Dreams from the Slum Initiative said the project was initiated in a bid to extend the right of education to vulnerable children.
He said: ‘We strongly believe that when children lack their basic educational amenities it affects their academic performance and self-esteem.
‘’ The essence of the project is to support / sponsor out of school children back into school, provide educational materials for children so they can be smart in school. There is a need to help children have a better opportunity to what education has to offer without having anything hindering them.”
The Head Teacher of Evergreen Nursery and Primary School, a beneficiary school, appreciated the kind gesture of providing good schools bags to Children.
Expressing her joy, one of the students, Yewande Obogun said she ‘didn’t have notebooks for all subject before but now I am happy I received enough books for all subject’’.
