New Being Foundation distributes school uniforms, shoes to 100 indigent school children in Sokoto
A research-based Non-Governmental Organisation, New Being Foundation, Nigeria, has put smiles on the faces of the less privileged children in Sokoto State.
As a means of promoting Sustainable Development Goals, the foundation provided school uniforms and shoes to no fewer than one hundred indigent school children in Sokoto State.
Considering the myriad of challenges facing Nigeria, The New Being Foundation, Nigeria, a research-based NGO, has been more concerned about promoting quality education and improving school children learning outcome that brings about the safety and well-being of school children who go to school without school uniforms, shoes and basic amenities.
Emmanuel Ayodeji Ayeni, the Founder of the New Being Foundation and a PhD candidate at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing and Oluwaseyi Mathew Adetoba, a graduate from Obafemi Awolowo University and a master’s student at Usmanu Dan Fodio University, embarked on a school clothing project in Sokoto State, Nigeria, as a way of achieving the annual sustainable development Goals of goals #3 and #4 on behalf of the foundation.
Through the New Being Foundation, the duo aimed to promote inclusive, quality education, good health and well-being among pre-teens and teenagers in Nigeria.
This year, through the research-based NGO, they have helped bring a sense of belonging to indigent students who have no wherewithal to wear uniforms, making them inferior and unidentifiable in case of insecurity challenges. Over One hundred (100) schools children who are indigent, frail and orphans were reached in the following schools (A. A Raji Special School, Yakubu Muhazu Junior Secondary School and Labo Dogo Daji Junior Secondary school) in Sokoto state metropolis.
The school administrators assisted in selecting the 100 beneficiaries (males and females) as the school uniform project targeted only vulnerable school children. The independent team of the New Being Foundation carried out the physical evaluation of these school children and took their measurements. The school uniform materials and shoe sizes measurements were collected and purchased newly, and the organisation supervised the sowing to meet the school standards.
Emmanuel Ayeni and Mathew Oluwaseyi Adetoba were applauded for their humanitarian actions and are hopeful that an inclusive, equitable, safe classroom environment and that quality education will be accessible irrespective of social-economic status https://newbeingfoundation.org/
