He said: ‘We strongly believe that when children lack their basic educational amenities it affects their academic performance and self-esteem.
‘’ The essence of the project is to support / sponsor out of school children back into school, provide educational  materials for children so they can be smart in school. There is a need to help children have a better opportunity to what education has to offer without having anything hindering them.”
The  Head Teacher of Evergreen Nursery and Primary School, a beneficiary school, appreciated the kind gesture of providing good schools bags to Children.
Expressing her joy, one of the students, Yewande Obogun said she ‘didn’t have notebooks for all subject before but now I am happy I received enough books for all subject’’.
