Furthermore, as our custom, we took to mentoring and counselling the students to be worthy ambassadors by inculcating excellence in their studies.
In the 2022 project, we extended the scholarship to Ibadan by providing over 21 textbooks and 70 exercise books to the young dancers of the Chrysolite Dance Crew. A grateful note from the children, “God still answers prayers’’, if you know how much those books and textbooks cost now, you will say a word of prayer to the foundation that donated it to us….” -The Chrysolite Crew
Indeed, the economic hardship bites hard on everyone, yet we believe that the little you can offer will make a great impact in the lives of needy. We can sure do much more with your little help.
