Giving hope to the girl child

Kelechi, her brother and I (1/2)

When I met Kelechi Davidson and her brother in 2019, She wasn't going to school.

 

Each time she saw her fellow kids back from school, or going to school she would always cry, and plead with her mom to take her to school. She really wanted education, but her background wasn't making it easy on her.

 

The mom who is a petty trader, with little or nothing she makes from her business, was only able to send Kelechi's Elder brother to school. She kept telling her daughter that one day she will go to school. 

 

Kelechi's mom who is also a single mom with three little children, has been finding it very difficult to take care of her kids and also feed.

 

In September 2019, one of the partners (Pastor Onyeka Ogwu), in the NGO reached out to me about he's interested in SUPPORTING a number of kids back to school that term.

 

I was so excited because it was an answered prayer. I quickly picked  Kelechi and two other girls as beneficiaries. 

 

 

 

​​​My goal is to keep giving hope to the girl child, SUPPORTING her to bring her dreams to reality.n

 

Since then my team and I have been Supporting not just Kelechi back to school but also feeding, clothing and taking care of her family and other girl childs.child

 

It's been such a great privilege for me seeing Kelechi doing excellently well in her academics.

 

I'll keep you all updated on Kelechi and other girls.

 

I believe that girls education is now it can't wait.

 

Join me add more value to humanity especially the girl child.

Dear Sister,
What a beautiful story, beautiful work. There is no excuse for any of the governments of the world to allow this treatment of anyone. What a change thanks to you, the NGO, and to any NGO who is making school possible.

Thank you so much lovely for your beautiful words of encouragement.

Sadly the government of some African countries are not even concerned about giving free quality education to their citizens but as dedicated NGO workers/humanitarians, we will keep doing our own part.

Thank you once more sis .

Love always

Hello sister. Beautiful story, beautiful heart and beautiful little Kelechi! I am so, so happy that this child was given an opportunity to go to school. A life is changed because somebody cared and we praise God for this miracle. Thank you for reaching out and for giving her hope and for reviving her spirit. Well done!

Bonjour chère sœur,
C'est triste d'entendre que certains enfants sont exclus à la scolarité et pourquoi? L’éducation des enfants sous entendue instruction et scolarité est droit garanti.
Merci de continuer à soutenir les enfants exclus à la scolarité.
