The purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better. — Robert F. Kennedy.
No matter how rich and successful a man is, he has a responsibility to help the needy as that is the only way towards creating a better society.
“The essence of human existentialism is to add value and make life comfortable for our fellow humans who at one critical point or the other need such supportive gesture to live a meaningful life; for by doing so, we have served even the unseen God who gave us the privileges we enjoy”
ABUGU JONAS UGOCHUKWU is the PROGRAM OFFICER of Agnes Ekeh Foundation. He visited his village (IGBELLE COMMUNITY IN ENUGU EZIKE, ENUGU STATE) to spend four days with his parents. In the morning on his second day as he was admiring the quiet and peaceful atmospheric conditions of the community, he decided to share pleasantries with relations and old friends, while doing this; he met two sets of three children of his ALMA MATA, two of whom are twins, were with no school uniforms.
They greeted him just like every well-trained kids will do. On the no uniform issue, he felt may be they newly started school. Hoping the parents will make the school uniforms for them, he ignored more contemplation on the matter.
But on visiting his village again after one month, he noticed the same kids still go to school with no uniforms. On further inquiries, he realized that the parents had no money to make the school uniforms for them due to lack of fund.
Mr. Jonas brought the matter to AGNES EKEH FOUNDATION and we took the matter upon ourselves to make school uniforms for the SIX kids even though we lacked the resource at the time the issue came to our desk.
The pictures and video show the presentation of the new school uniforms and exercise books to the SIX pupils by our Program Officer, MR. ABUGU JONAS UGOCHUKWU. One of the kids did not come to school on the day of the presentation.
THIS MAY BE LITTLE BUT CERTAINLY DEMONSTRATES A SHOW OF LOVE AND KINDNESS.
Presenting the uniforms, the Program Officer on behalf of the Coordinator of Agnes Ekeh Foundation- Distinguished Humanitarian Mamah Celestine O, FIHSD, AMNIM, AMIPMA encouraged the pupils to be diligent and hardworking towards achieving academic excellence that will add values to their lives, families, community, and Nigeria as whole.
The Head Mistress, MRS. IDU ELIZABETH commended the efforts of AEF as they strive to create society where youth and indigent ones will have the opportunities and enabling atmosphere to reach their full potentials. She expressed deep appreciation to GOD for bringing AGNES EKEH FOUNDATION at a time when such initiative is needed to address the issues affecting the youth and indigent ones in the community.
Mrs. Elizabeth also brought to our attention the bushy school environment. She told us that the pupils are infants and as such, cannot clear the grasses and we promised to clear the school environment for them.
