Against The Odds!

(Written by Njideka Raleke-Obiora) Typically, children from disadvantaged families are associated with poor performance in school or outright illiteracy.  However, we have come across children from impoverished homes who have a thousand and one reasons not to excel, but have totally defied these odds, and are excelling in their academics and many other skills.  One…

Building The Nigerian Future – One Child At A Time

(Co-written by Njideka Raleke-Obiora and Simran Daryanani) To say that the future of Nigeria lies in the children’s potentials cannot be overestimated.  Every parent’s dream is for the child to have better opportunities than they did.  As we celebrate Independence Day yet again, it is only proper that we evaluate what we as individuals have…
