BACK TO SCHOOL
By Sam Ajufoh – Project leader
Children in class
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.
