Nigerian Turkish International Colleges Foundation (NTIC Foundation) has started distributing  to underprivileged students under the ‘I Support a Child’s Education’.
Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Mallam Muhammad Bello, who launched the project in Kayada Junior Secondary School, Kuje. Abuja, described it as “a means for our children to study harder and make us proud”.
The project, which started in October 2013, is supported by parents of students at NTIC, staff, Nigerian Turkish Nile University, Nigerian Turkish Nizamiye Hospital, ABINAT, Ufuk Dialogue Foundation, Galaxy Uni-Prep Centre, Vefa Travel and Tourism Ltd and Nusret Education Ltd.
Over 13,000 learning aids, including books, geometry sets pencils, sharpeners, erasers, and others  were prepared for distribution.
A beneficiary who simply identify herself as Amina, said: ‘I am so happy for this gift by the NTIC Foundation. We are happy. Our parents will be happy too. May God continue to bless them.’
Director of NTIC Foundation Mr. Fethullah Celik said they were “happy to make contribution to the students’ education life”.
He said: “Our contribution will continue. Since we just found out there is lack of water here, we are going to build a borehole for them.
“We are thankful to our parents, donors and supporters. This dream is becoming true with their contributions.”
