It was a heartwarming sight at the IDP camp located at Area one, Durumi Abuja as  Rising Child Foundation paid a courtesy visit. The organization which is a Non-governmental organization run by its founder, Miss Taibat Aduragba Hussein and the selfless volunteers were at the camp to indoctrinate into the children, on the need to acquire a good education, telling them that, they should work past limitations and work hard to be better in school.


The headteacher at the school in the camp who was there to receive the organization, Mr.Aminu also reiterated the point and made an example of himself to the children, telling them that in order to become better and knowledgeable they had to work hard in school.

The organization whose main objective is to aid in the development of world leaders through harnessing their potentials and embellishing them in the art of public speaking and presentation through debates, spelling Bee’s, essays, storytelling sessions etc.


Representatives from the Youth-WASH were also at the event to educate the children on personal hygiene and the need to keep their surroundings clean. Miss Yahaya Ojonugwa spoke to the children on the importance of keeping their environment clean and bathing twice a day. Another representative Gift Ele Agwu also corroborated the points highlighted by her colleague stating that being clean brings about confidence, and with confidence they could amount to whatever they wanted to become, stating that confidence ensures success.


In attendance was also the youngest humanitarian in Nigeria, Miss Fatima Habib and she spoke to the kids on the need for them to do well in school so as to be able to instigate and Institute positive change in the society using herself as a model example, she told the kids that she was 14 years old when she started engaging in humanitarian activities,.The humanitarian who just turned 18 last week is the founder of the Advocacy for Human Value Foundation, a non-governmental organization that focuses on people with special disabilities, health and education. The humanitarian who is a 2nd year student of the University of Maiduguri studying Sociology and Anthropology spoke on the benefit of education and emphasized the importance of educating the girl child.


Speaking with the founder on the reason why she embarked on this project, she replied: "I want to see children in Nigeria, acquire the right skills, embraces their true potentials, and so embarked on this Reading Enrichment Project aimed at reviving and promoting reading culture amongst Nigerian students”. Speaking on the poor standard of education she said” It pains me that in Nigeria there is no optimal reward for academic excellence, hence I hope to organize competitions to this end that will reward academic excellence.

Miss Aduragba who has always had a penchant for teaching, sees this as a way of giving back to society saying she was given the opportunity to learn, hence she wants to give back in the same vein. In her own words” I don’t have any sad story time tell as most people who run such foundations do, I just want to give back to society, since I was then given the opportunity to learn. Hence, I wish to give this child same chance also.


The organization donated 120 pencils, 80 exercise books, and refreshment for the children. The headteacher expressed his happiness as he thanked the organization profusely for their support and encouragement towards the children saying that their presence would motivate the children to strive to do better in school. The foundation opined that in equipping these children with the tools of education, they hope that it goes a long way in conveying how much of their best interests they have at heart and it moves them to face their studies with dexterity and diligence.

At the end of the day the children were all excited, and when asked how they felt, they responded that they had learnt a lot about the benefit of education and how to keep themselves and their environment clean, and promised to teach their parents what they had learnt.
