Humanitarian Groups Empower Pupils


Mavrodi Mondial Movement (MMM), in conjunction with Hope Givers Humanitarian Services, an NGO, under an initiative tagged, ‘Welcome Back to School’ recently empowered pupils of FOA Primary School 2, Okokomaiko, Iba LCDA, Lagos, with donation of items. The organisers of the initiative said the objective was to empower the kids so that they will have a sense of belonging which will translate into a better learning attitude. Items donated to the students, who were obviously in dire need of essential educational materials, included school bags, exercise books, sandals and stationery, among other things. The organisers said they identified those in need and then contact corporate bodies for sponsorship. In this instance, Hope Givers Humanitarian Services contacted MMM and they responded promptly after a school was identified at Okokomaiko. 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: “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.” The school’s Headmistress, Mrs. Udensi, thanked the both groups for remembering children whose parents could not provide for them.
