Rotary gives scholarship to IDP schoolchildren

The Rotary Club of Abuja has, in collaboration with Aunty Jumoke Education Foundation, given full scholarship to 60 Chibok community children, from the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp, Pegi, Abuja, to study at the city’s Pegi Primary and Secondary School.
In addition to the scholarship, they were given school bags, 10 exercise books each, school uniforms, sportswear, cardigans and berets. Speaking on the occasion, President, Rotary Club of Abuja, Grandfathers Club, Olajumoke Okpo, noted that, “it is not their fault that they are in this condition. They were displaced, and the least Nigerians can do for them is to help put them back in school. We don’t want them to just see soldier as the best they can be, we want them to have education and be great people in the future because they are the future.”
The Director General, Rotary Club District 9125, Mike Omotosho, called for more projects to put the kids in school as putting them in school leads to, not only bridging a gap for people in need, but also giving Nigerian children opportunity to be who they truly want to be. The Leader of the Pegi IDP camp, Sunday Moses, while thanking them for their immense help noted that they have given them hope.
