I am Adeola Samuel, an encourager here on World Pulse. I am a caregiver with Child Care Trust here in Nigeria, an Accountant by profession and also an enterpreneur.
I have passion for the less priveldeged, Which most vulnerable are teenage girls. I see their struggles everyday around me and it pains that I can't provide all the helps/support needed for them due to my financial status, I'm glad about the few lives had touched and still impacting but I feel hurt and saddened when money/finance pose a barrier against offering such help.
How do I tell Uju an 18years old girl that got pregnant at age 15, dropped out of school at junior class3 and gave birth to a special need child that I can no longer support her and her child again. The chances of her going back to school and the boy getting adequate medical help is now slim or is it Halimat, my dear daughter who had been a source of encouragement and huge support to since she lost her mother in 2013, she finally gained admission into university and finance still says no way.
Sometimes when people who heard I could be of help to them come to my house, I see in their eyes the surprise because of my small apartment where I live with my husband and son but their joy afterwards because I understand it's very hard to ask for help so I can never make anyone feel bad for seeking support but the issue is that I have limited resources to meet all these needs. There is high rate of poverty and hardship in this community which I can't turn my face away from.
My service to humanity is my calling, I am disturbed and so I am calling out to my well meaning sisters who can help me in whatsoever way in achieving my dream of giving hope to the hopeless. We hope to have a home, sponsor the less priviledged children especially girl child through school, have a training centre where we can also sell out our produce to generate fund...
I see people using gofundme but I discovered I can't make use of it from Nigeria except I get someone to do it on my behalf. I need to raise fund, I need support system that works. I need you world pulse family.
