Education Liberates...



This morning, we enrolled our young friend Bamidele Oluwaseun in school. But before then, we had to change his tattered wears and sandal replacing them with the clothing items and school sandals received, yesterday. He really was so excited. He is in Basic 2.


#Education is a right of every child regardless of the circumstance, age, gender, ethnicity, religion. Education liberates the soul..

Why We Are Buying The Items..


Dear Sir/Ma,

Hoping that this mail meets you well. Best regards!

Need Assessment
In 2012, we visited some public primary schools in under-served communities, Lagos, and based on our interaction with the school officials and the children, we realized that a good number of the children do not have basic educational item. No backpack, no books, and, they seldom eat breakfast etc.. It seemed a different ball game. 

Intervention Program
Through the donations and support received from partnering Organisations and YOU, in the last few years, we have been able to donate thousands of educational items to these children in Agbado/Oke-Odo and Alimosho LGA, Lagos State. We donated items such as educational wallchart, school bags, stationary, notebooks, educational toys, school sandals et. At other time, we donated HUGE water tank for children in one of the schools. Thank you to A Ray of Hope, U.K; the United Parcel Service and YOU our friends for the unimaginable support for the children. Thank you, sir/ma. #BagSwap2014.
