In furtherance of our objective to support the education of indigent and outstanding students, our team recently visited 5 secondary schools in 3 states to award scholarships to 135 students.
The schools are:
- Ataoja Government High School, Osogbo, Osun State (20 students)
- Ogunnire Comprehensive High School, Ire- Ekiti, Ekiti State (20 students)
- Ado Grammar School, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State (21 students)
- Community Comprehensive High School, Ikaram-Akoko, Ondo State (27 students)
- Okeede High School, Supare-Akoko, Ondo State (47 students)
The presentation of the awards had in attendance students, parents, teachers, government officials, chiefs and kings, who were all very happy that such program was brought to their schools as a way of celebrating academic excellence and ameliorating poverty.
Overall, 74 of the total recipients are female and 61 male students. 87 were awarded based on excellent academic performance while 48 received the awards as indigent students whose parents were unable to pay their school fees.
The scholarship covers school fees including the Senior School Leaving Examination (WASSCE) fees for those in their final year. School bags, note books, and writing materials were also given to the students with a copy of “Maximize Your Potential for Academic Excellence” by Vincent Adeoba.
Many thanks to our team members who visited the schools - Vincent Adeoba, Yetunde Akinyosola, Novel Ndimele, Ibrahim Muktar and Segun Bamgbala.
We are grateful to all our donors and volunteers, you made it possible! We are committed to this cause and with your support we hope to reach out to more students in the next scholarship program.
