Mavrodi Mondial Movement (MMM), in conjunction with Hope Givers Humanitarian Services, an NGO, under an initiative tagged: Welcome Back To School empowered pupils of FOA Primary School 2, Okokomaiko, Iba LCDA, Lagos, recently when they donated bags and stationary to needy students.
Speaking, an official of Hope Givers said that the objective was all about empowering the kids so that they will have a sense of belonging which will translate into a better learning environment.
Said the official: “My name is Saheed, I am a representative of Hope Givers, an NGO into humanitarian services. We are here today at FOA primary School under a programme tagged: Welcome Back To School which is sponsored by MMM.
“A lot of the students here are in dire need of critical educational materials so the aim is to donate school bags, exercise books, sandals and stationary among other items to needy students so that they can have a sense of belonging. What we do is to identify areas people are in need and once we do that we contact corporate platforms for sponsorship.
“For this case we contacted MMM for sponsorship since they are a humanitarian platform and they responded. We told them we had identified a school in our community that is in need hence we have provided all these for the betterment of the pupils today.”
Addressing the students, MMM representative, Amaka Benson said that MMM is a charity platform that believes in empowering the needy, taking care of the sick and also runs skills acquisition centres: “Today we were brought here by Hope Givers Humanitarian Services and we are saying welcome back to school. Today you are going back home with brand new school bags, school sandals and stationary as MMM in conjunction with Hope Givers is welcoming you all back to school. MMM is a charity platform and we are known for putting smiles on people’s faces. Carry on with your learning so that you can do better and strive to achieve your dreams because you are the leaders of tomorrow.”
Responding, Mrs. Udensi, Head Mistress of the school thanked the officials of MMM and Hope Givers. She said: “Thanks for remembering our children whose parents could not provide for them,. May God bless you and replenish your pockets.”
