I first heard about Otto Orondaam and Slum2School in 2011. We happened to serve in the same NYSC batch. S2S was his service year project. I was so inspired by his passion and work. If you don’t know what S2S is/does, please click on the link to find out.
Over the years, Slum2School has enrolled over 500 kids from slums while providing them with all the support they need. A new school year is starting up next month, so the S2S work continues. As you begin back-to-school preparations for the children in your lives (new clothes, shoes, uniforms, stationery, and the works 😉 ), remember to sponsor a child and help S2S reach even more children. Let’s invest in the future of our society, and help these children to get an education.
In the new 2015/2016 school-calendar-year, Slum2school Africa has four major goals:
- To keep up the support and provide all the educational needs for Slum2school Africa beneficiaries currently in school.
- Slum2school Africa earlier adopted three (3) government schools in Makoko Yaba and our goal is to improve the quality of education in these schools.
- Provision of scholarships, and construction of a school, for 500 children living in camps for internally displaced people within Abuja and other northern states.
- Our fourth goal for the year is the construction of the ARK School (An innovative solar-powered low-cost school in the shape of an ark) within Makoko community, a community that still has over 5000 out-of-school children.
Your help is needed to meet this goals. All donations help.
