Trust YOU are keeping well. Thanks for all you do.
Today, our continuous appreciation goes to everyone of you reading this mail. Thanks for staying in touch and thank you for impacting lives of young people through us. It's been awesome having you as friend, sponsor, donor and youth mentor! You have been amazing! For example, today, we remember vividly some 2 years back, when a friend, showed up to mentor and sponsor the education programs of some 2 girls. And, till date, he still mentors, and consistently pay them a monthly stipend of 10,000 each!
To all Child Sponsors and Donors, thank you for rekindling hope of these young people. It means so much to all of us. Thank you, greatly! To our Amiable Volunteer Mentors, you are priceless. Thanks for your time and knowledge shared.
Interestingly, this week, we received the donations of Projector, Printer and Projection Screen from A Ray of Hope, UK, for our youth resource centre!! (Find Photo, Attached). Thank you hugely, Don McBurney for your support. Zillion thanks, always. :)

...I got a phone call from a mama this morning whose 13yo daughter was raped and she's asking for help, for justice. She was in tears...as her little girl has been ill. This is too much to bear!!, And then, I remember the abducted girls in some far away land. Whatever might be happening to them, their mamas, too. Thank you, Esther Ijewere Kalejaiye for all you do. #BringBackOurGirls. -Tosin
