Update on WLFF/LOTS project
Hope the first couple of months of this year have been very exciting and you have all started the year with lots of good cheer!
We again would like to say a huge Thank You! to everyone who supported us at the "Old Hollywood" fundraising ball in October 2011.
With the £4,305 raised, £3,800 has been put aside in a secure account, for the education of our young friend and sponsoree Emmanuel Idegbe.
- Emmanuel is a brilliant young man who despite his academic abilities had been held back by sub-par education due to his financial background
- Thanks to WLFF supporters, Emmanuel started in JSS1 (UK Year 7) at the private school, CARO Favoured secondary school in Ajegunle, Lagos in November 2011
- His school fees, uniform, notebooks, textbooks and daily lunch are being sponsored by WLFF in addition to regular checks on his welfare
- We plan to support him for the next 6 years until he finishes secondary school and we believe he will complete his secondary school education with a better chance at future success.
The remaining £505 has been spent on enhancing the educational experience of the remainder of the children who attend LOTS after-school resource centre in Ajegunle. These 125 children are unable to attend quality primary and secondary schools and LOTS provide them with daily classes in Maths, English, Personal Hygiene, Computer studies etc.
- WLFF purchased a 42-inch LG Television alongside a home theatre system for use by the entire centre for education
- We also purchased a series of educational DVDs on Phonetics, Maths, The Alphabet, and Shapes to provide a fun and interactive way for the kids to learn the basic concepts (more photos to follow soon!)
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you again soon
With Love, From Friends
