As part of the efforts to impact the world positively and help the disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the public, Feed Needy World Initiative, a Non-Governmental Organisation embarked on a program to give financial assistance to pupils of Sought After Creative Academy, Adigbe in Abeokuta on Wednesday 16th December, 2020.
At least, 60 students benefited from the initiative when Feed Needy World Initiative donated the sum of N250,000 cash and other gift items as palliatives for the beneficiaries.
With tears of joy, Mrs Tolulope Anfela-Jacob, the proprietress of the beneficiary school, expressed gratitude to Feed Needy World Initiative for deeming it fit to support the school, highlighting that the school – Sought After Creative Academy is a tuition-free school, which has been battling to pay staff salaries and keep up with running the school.
Mrs Anfela-Jacob said, “this is the first time an NGO is supporting the children and the school”.
“We are really grateful to the Feed Needy World Initiative for locating the school despite our remote location. I am very encouraged and I pray that God almighty blesses the Chief Executive and Founder of Feed Needy World Initiative, Mr. Eromosele Isaac Oluwafemi as well as other volunteers and people involved in Feed Needy World Initiative”, she said.
While fielding questions from newsmen at the venue, Eniola Damiliola Majekodunmi, the Director of Events and Operations for Feed Needy World Initiative, said the NGO’s main aim is to help the needy where they needed it most and add value to the lives of vulnerable members of the society.
Eniola Majekodunmi said, “Feed Needy Wold Initiative is here to give cash and gift items to these children today, to support them and encourage them because they are the future of this nation. We believe government alone cannot do everything and it is our role as partners in progress and as NGO to fill some vacuums where government is lagging behind, particularly on education and welfare for the less privileged”.
Feed Needy World Initiative also has the goal to be an organization that supports and assists vulnerable and socially disadvantaged children, widows, people living with disabilities, orphans and others who might need help. We also have plans to cover a lot of places where our assistance might be needed, including Ibara Prison in Abeokuta, Eniola expressed.
