In line with our vision to support the education of financially disadvantaged children, last Friday, the Impact Africa Foundation team visited The Abolarin College, Oke-Ila Orangun, Osun State.

Abolarin College was founded by the 'Kabiyesi' Orangun of Oke-Ila Orangun, Oba Adedokun Omoniyi Abolarin. His mission is to use his royal stool to redefine the face of education in Nigeria.

The school is completely free including the boarding facilities. The school was founded with the vision of providing free world class quality education to children picked from the streets and those from poor homes whose parents cannot afford their education.

The school presently has 74 students who are learning in a conducive academic environment and have access to necessary education materials which include personal laptops, library, textbooks, school bags, uniforms, writing materials and others. All the students are in the boarding house and eat quality meals daily.

This school isn’t a run of the mill regular school, students at the Abolarin College speaks at least 3 languages fluently English, French and Yoruba. They are groomed to approach the future without fear or trepidation.With a specially designed and regulated curriculum, students receive all round education that extends beyond the walls of the classroom. They are not only intellectually sound, they are trained to be independent, entrepreneurs and equally excellent agriculturists. They spend 1 hour daily on the school farm to produce part of the food they eat.

Impact Africa Foundation identifies with the vision of the founder of the school and joined efforts with him to continue the noble work of giving quality education to the disadvantaged students.

The academic and mentorship seminar organised for the students had Taiwo Oyedele, Head of Tax and Regulatory Services, PwC Nigeria who is also the Founder and President of Impact Africa Foundation as the guest speaker. He shared his story to inspire the students to dream big and not to allow their humble backgrounds to limit their aspirations but rather to be an inspiration to dream big with a 'can-do' spirit that is unstoppable.

IAF also donated foodstuffs, school bags, books and 'scholarships' funds to the school. We do not want this to be a one-off event, so please join us in sustaining the dream of making the indigent students 'leaders of tomorrow'. See details for donation in our profile.

Remember, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" - Edmund Burke.

We at Impact Africa Foundation continue to drive and achieve our objective of providing support to the less privileged children in Africa. This time, we were in Rivers State, Nigeria to visit Godknows Atata, a 15 year old, JSS 2 student of Government Secondary School, Okarki, Rivers State.

Godknows Atata was born with Amelia and has lived without aid but found convenience in his condition. He attends school like every normal kid, writes and socializes. Our attention was drawn to this kid by a National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) member, Aron Smiggle Blaresyn who currently serves as a teacher in Godknows’ school. The visit was championed by the Education Ambassador for Impact Africa Foundation, Vincent Adeoba.

The visit to GodKnows was welcomed and appreciated by the students and teachers of the school. With the support of the public via donations and suggestions, a wheelchair was donated to Godknows and a scholarship to sponsor his education up to University level.

This action undertaken by us with your support further buttresses the fact that disability is no excuse for failure. In disability lies ability and it takes determination and our collective responsibility to provide for the less privileged in our society, see beyond the present and work towards a better future.

We do not take for granted your support in helping dreams come true and we appreciate you.

Below are pictures from the visit.

Thank you all.

As part of the objectives of the foundation in supporting the education of less privileged children, we are pleased to bring to you the first beneficiary of the Impact Africa Foundation (IAF) scholarship.

His name is Bisi Olajuyigbe. He is thirteen (13) years old and an indigene of Ekiti State whose creativity was admired by the IAF team while showcasing a piece at an event in Ekiti State. This lad had produced a portable mobile fan from recycled materials including a plastic soap case, a pet bottle and other materials.

The IAF team engaged him in a conversation and experienced a communication gap as he had little understanding of English and answered questions in his dialect (Yoruba) which he spoke eloquently. We got in touch with his mother who confirmed to the team that Bisi had to drop out of school as a result of her inability to pay his tuition.

We are giving Bisi a chance to achieve his dreams of becoming an engineer and have proceeded to enroll him at Our Lady of Fatima International College in Ekiti State. He has taken the entry examination and he is to begin Junior Secondary School (JSS) One by September 18, 2016 at. Asides regular school, an arrangement for extra lessons have been made to re-orientate him and speed up his learning process.

This is a step in the right direction and we have started with one.

Represent a good cause and let us rebuild a foundation together. Please support this cause by volunteering to be part of the Foundation’s activities and you are sure of positively impacting an individual.

We are funded by donations from the public and the proceeds from the sale of a book written by Taiwo Oyedele President IAF titled ‘Insights on Taxation and Fiscal Policy’. To purchase please click -------> PURCHASE BOOK

We seek donations to fund education related activities like this. Please make donations to IAF Naira account with details below:
ACCOUNT NUMBER: 1014295529
Thank you for your support always.
