89 Children from Nigerian Rural Community in Ogun State Sponsored Back-to-School

Partners of the InnerCity Mission secure the future of 89 children through free education.

There was unrestrained joy in Odoraboyejo Ojowo Community, Ijebu-Igbo, in Ogun State, Nigeria, on Tuesday, the 9th of May, as 89 children who could not attend school due to lack of financial resources were sent back to school by the InnerCity Mission.

This gesture was extended in commemoration of Nigeria's upcoming May 27 Children's Day when partners advocate for the rights of children in Nigeria and beyond, in this case by meeting the educational needs of indigent children. The children were enrolled in the community school, Saint Matthews Anglican Primary School, and received free Back-to-School kits, containing brand new school uniforms, backpacks, shoes and stationery.

Local government chairman expresses his gratitude to partners of the InnerCity Mission.

The local government chairman, community leaders, parents and partners of the InnerCity Mission in Ijebu-Igbo were present, along with staff of the local government's educational parastatal including the Educational Director for Ijebu North and representatives of the School-Based Management Council (SBMC).

Parents give their hearts to Christ at the altar call.

A call to salvation was made during the Back-to-School ceremony, to which over 130 adults and children responded, receiving Jesus as their Lord and Savior. All new converts received free copies of materials by the man of God, Pastor Chris, to help guide them in the new life they have received.
