When I was in primary school, I remember that I had two sets of school uniforms and sport wear.
I would wear one of my uniforms on Monday and Tuesday and the other one on Thursday and Friday. The sportswear was usually worn on Wednesday which was the sports day.
I also remember how my parents worked so hard to provide us with food so that we wouldn’t go to bed hungry.
Years after, I volunteer as a Teach For Nigeria Fellow at Ogun State where I am a proud teacher of seventy-one super achievers in a public primary school. In my school, I work with another fellow who is also a proud teacher of fifty champions.
We have earlier taught in a compact private school where the pupils had more than one pair of school uniforms. Now, we teach in a public school where our kids have only one set of school uniform – most very tattered.
The kids we teach are largely from poor socioeconomic backgrounds where their parents are struggling to make ends meet. Most of them are termed ‘lucky’ to be in school, many of whom come to school without breakfast and sometimes with no hope for lunch.
The right to good food, good clothing, quality education should be the rights of every Nigerian child . We are using this opportunity to seek your financial support to provide scholarship to take care of some of the needs of our kids in school.
This scholarship will cover the cost of a new school uniform – One Thousand and Five Hundred Naira (N1500) and PTA support levy for this second term One Thousand and Five Hundred Naira (N1500) and the third term One Thousand and Five Hundred Naira (N1500).
That’s Four Thousand and Five Hundred Naira (N4500) per kid or a total of Five Hundred and Fourty-Four Thousand and Five Hundred Naira (N544500) for our One Hundred and Twenty-one kids.
Kindly support us to provide these basic needs for our kids in school. You can support by donating the total amount for a kid, pay for a set of uniform or for all the expense of the second and third terms for one child.
These kids deserve the best. Please support us to provide them with the materials that they need today.
