MOST OF OUR CHILDREN NEED HELP : BEYOND MEET THE EYES.

A visit I made to some of our pupils' homes to know why they are not in school revealed so much. Indeed these children need urgent help.

Most of them do not come to school because not only due to lack of fees but food, clothes,sickness, sleeplessness just to mention a few. A good number sleep on the floor, very pathetic houses. Some are sick of malaria due to the recent heavy rains. We have plans to help at least 5 pupils from each class as from next year but this is still far too little as we continue to get more and more pupils everyday. This month alone, we have received 29 new pupils. Yet a good number of our old pupils are still loitering in the streets or are at home due to a number of reasons.
We are soon putting up a green house courtesy of a local donor and we hope this will help us to assist some of them. I wish to invite you and your friends to come up with ways to help these children. We are also having a fund raising soon to help these children.Most of the homes of our children are in the houses seen in the photos here below. A great pity.

What is the government doing in these places. The condition looks so pathetic. Atleast the humanitarian aid organizations should come up to help these kids...

We as a youth group we are trying to help out where the Government has not reached.We appreciate the free primary education by the government but we have to get deeper to help out those who have been forgotten.
Most of these children do not meet/ have the minimum entry requirements to join public schools for free education. Yet free education in most cases is not very free as the word implies. We as a community feel that we need to help where the government has failed and sek its support to help us.
Thank you for you comments.

I am just 20. I started helping others specially poor people in my local area. I know that this is not a big deal but I think every little effort put by every common man/woman can big a huge impact. I also run a free online teaching service, where I hire teachers to teach lectures and I have a video recording team that record,edit and publish on our website and we share it for free world wide.

Last month we denoted a huge library of speaking English course videos in villages for free.

Every effort helps.

Thanks
