As schools open on January 7th in Edo state of Nigeria and with a lot of work still left to be done on this project. We went quickly back to the schools on 14th at 1pm to check what we could do for the children.when we went to give the school supply to the pupils the last time we discovered that many of the children still needed school sandals, so we took a clobber to the school to try and mend some of the sandal of these shoes prior to getting new ones for them as soon as funds are available. The children were very happy to see us.We were also able to give school bags to 7 pupils. The teachers in also on ground to call out the children to be receive support.Our medical team was also on ground to see children that needed medical attention. Action for Community Development say a big thank you to all donors who believe that these children need support and they continue to keep this children in school.
For us in Action for Community Development, community service is a calling and with this passion we do our work. On september 20, our staff was sent meet the teachers in Ugiagbe primary school to discuss with them ways of supporting the orphans. On 17th of October, we went back to ugiagbe primary school to provide educational materials and psychosocial support for the orphans in the school.Our team got to the school at10.30.am. Just a few minutes to their break time. The children were overjoyed to see us again in their school.we were able to reach 110 pupils. since we have not raise enough money for the project yet, we felt it will be good to try and provide some basic support first, for the children since schools have resumed. 25 pupils were given 2 note books, 7 pupils got school bags and 10 pupils got a pair sandal each. All the 200 pupils got a pencil and ruler each. Those that needed school uniform since their uniform were torn and tetarred, had their names written on a separate sheet. we were not able to provide these uniforms yet since we are yet to recieve funding support .Then we are also yet to reach out to those in secondary schools. we hope to do so soon. we sincerely hope we will able to reach out to these pupils and students once we recieve support to do so.we still have a lot do and we are counting on our partners to help us to reach these children. we sincerely want to thank our partners who have given on-line and off - line to this project. please continue to support us. The " thank you" from the pupils was RESOUNDING. Niye Amandasun said "I had no bag to use to bring my books to school. but this one you have given me is very good, i like it". Again, another pupil Felix Efeloghor said '' It was my teacher's biro, i was using to write, thank you for given me mine" we also our medical personnel on ground to acess the children medically .
