Veronica: Is like a mother to 35 children

I got back from Trinity Primary School on July 30th, and I wanted to share an exceptional story from Trinity with you.

Everything was going as planned when we arrived - the children were singing and dancing in the playground during their break time. A good number of children had gathered, greeted us, and while others were enjoying their well-rehearsed physical exercise led by a teacher.

Then, all of  a sudden, Veronica made her way in the office of  a head teacher and asked if she could help identify the new children admitted into the program. I want to see these children practically, and Hope Ofiriha cannot pay school fees for children they don't know,  a rule must be followed strictly - and now I am here to clarify on these issues - William said.

The payment of school fees were delayed partly because of this, and the Board decided not to provide the money until the identity of the new children are established, then pay school fees for all children at once. Now these fees are paid!

She was like a master of 35 children studying at Trinity School because of your support! I wish you could have been in person to hear how well Veronica speaks English. " These children are happy at their new environment. Thank you" to people like you!
