We are elated to share with you some of the activities that took place at Lend a Hand for the Development of Africa in August. Our efforts towards advancing the socio-economic development of Africa through education have been fruitful, and we want to update you on some of the exciting things that happened!
Apart from providing scholarships, we wanted the kids to experience a different holiday this year and we decided to organize summer camps to support the development of the kids in Agege and Ikorodu. Our summer camp activities included career pep talks, board games, SSDs enlightenment by guests like Leo da Silver, comedian Princewill, and Mr. Emmanuel, and a host of other fun activities that had over 50 kids in attendance from the host communities. The summer camp is geared towards creating an environment that promotes creativity, critical thinking, and teamwork, while also helping the kids build relationships and have fun.
At Lend a Hand, we believe that education is the key to unlocking Africa’s potential. We are proud to share that we are in the process of absorbing five children into our scholarship scheme. These children come from underprivileged backgrounds and are currently unable to afford an education. Through our scholarship scheme, we intend to provide them with access to quality education and the opportunity to build a brighter future for themselves.
One of our core values is the promotion of the welfare of our host communities. It is in line with this value that we initiated our food drive project. This project aims to provide relief to our beneficiaries in the communities to reduce the effects of food insecurity. We are happy to report that our food drive has been successful, and we have been able to reach a significant number of families.
Assessment from the Kids School and JAMB Scores
Lend a Hand is committed to ensuring that the children in our scholarship scheme receive a quality education that will enable them to reach their full potential. We take assessments from their schools to monitor their academic progress. We are pleased to report that the assessments we received from the schools have been overwhelmingly positive, and the kids are doing well. Also, our scholarship recipients took the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (AMB) exams, and their scores were impressive. We are confident that they will get into good universities and excel in their studies.
in conclusion, we remain grateful for your continued support, and we urge you to keep supporting us in our quest to promote development through education. Together, we can create a brighter future for Africa
