Students Are Enrolled From The Emergency Education Project – Nigeria
The Emergency Education Project of Nigeria aimed to raise tuition for four children to continue enrollment in school through the StayInSchooling Initiative. Due to the Ebola outbreak in Nigeria, schools were temporarily closed so the children have just been officially enrolled. Please, enjoy the photos below of the four top scoring students that were able to go to school because donors like you care about their future. Their names are Hannah Akintewe, Precious Onipede, Emmanuela Okonkwo, and David Adediran.
1) Hannah Titilayo Akintewe – Ejigbo Junior High School Lagos
2) Precious Aanuoluwapo Onipede – Ejigbo Junior High School Lagos
3) Emmanuela Okonkwo – Eko Junior High school Okota
4) David Adediran – Ijeshatedo Junior Grammar school Lagos.
You may remember that two of the students that we had hoped to enroll were named Gabriel and Sunday. Based on previous academics, these children were believed to be the front runners for the scholarships, however, when the scholarship examination which was modeled after the Nigerian Common Entrance examinations was administered to all of the children by an external body (www.passnownow.com) they were not in the top five students. The StayInSchooling Initiative felt a responsibility to the children who did score the highest and so decided to grant them the scholarships.
The fifth child is being given tuition from donations made directly with the StayInSchooling Initiative and not through Aura’s House. They are still hoping to be able to internally raise more money for tuition for Gabriel since he tested sixth amongst the students. Aura’s House would like to extend our apologies for the confusion with the recipients as we always do our very best to maintain complete transparency with our donors.
This project is now complete, but there are other active projects that could benefit from your donations.
I prefer to donate offline.
