LATEST WORK IN A LOCAL COMMUNITY!!!
Ok we know this is not the worse place in the Africa!But I am amazed at the way people are still leaving in this time, day and age.
Through the help of a young man Mr Daniel; making impact in his own way in this community called "Gbame" in Lagos state Nigeria, we were able to locate another point where we could reach out and meet needs again.
This community like I said is not the worse place but then again, we keep reaching them and impacting their world and lives in our own great ways. However the most interesting thing is that they are happy and full of life, as I and my team visited Gbame community, I asked myself one question 'why many people leaving in better houses, working and driving still complain / live in fear??? well that is not the point for today...
Well, we had just one aim this year before setting out on this mission and that is to support the great work of the Believers Loveworld Nation at the Innercity Mission; on the 'Back to School' Initiative.
The name of the School we are working with this year is Olutimi Int. School, this school is owned by a young great leader who saw the need to help educate the children of Gbame community.
Although we went with the aim to provide school uniforms, bags, shoes and water bottle and also introduce sport wears, but did we stick to the plan? hmmm
what baffles me is the fact that in this condition this children are learning so much, following the report we got from the friends and family, majority couldn't read, write or even speak English as some are from Sierra Leone, Liberia, Republic of Benin etc. But we say all thanks to Mr Olamide,
the Proprietor of Olutimi Int. School for his great works. 'see more pictures below'
first time they read the Rhapsody of Realities'.
the owner of the school was surprised...
Women In Focus Enterprise Media aka W.I.F.E MEDIA has decided support and change the current state of Olutimi Int. School, as we can see in the image, these kids are learning in hardship, but we would like to cover, rebuild and upgrade this school, so that Education can be more enjoyable and comfortable for them. So we have decided to start stay on this cause, complete the work and have at least 2-3 mobile toilets for the workers / pupils of Olutimi Int. School. This children will be so big and greater that they will become the success stories to the upcoming once and currently we are working on the roofing, expansion, flooring, study tables and chairs that can sit 4 students per one and whole body work to prevent rain from interfering during their sessions in class. Olutimi Int. School has over 300 pupils and yes we all know Education is KEY.
" WE ARE CALLING ON FRIENDS, FAMILIES, AMBASSADORS FOR CHANGE, ROLE MODELS, MOTHERS & FATHERS, TO JOIN US MAKE THIS GREAT CHANGE, WE WILL LAUNCH VARIOUS FUNDRAISING STRATEGIES TO HELP RAISE MORE FUNDS FOR THIS WORK".
Like I said we thought it was just uniforms and a little support that was required, but we couldn't do that and turn our backs on this community and its interest to educate her children from Primary to Secondary level, so we decided to help better their study environment, whilst impacting them with the word of God; remember when you feed one, you feed all!!!
