ERNEST BEBENIMIBO FOUNDATION fulifills her promise to Communities in Riverine Communities in DELTA STATE on the 4th of October 2021
In pursuit of her core Objective of bringing hope to the hopeless, reaching the unreached and imparting lives one person at a time, EBF today embarked on the phase one of her Project KitUpToSchool 2021.
In the first phase, a total of 5 Schools in 5 Communities in the Riverine Communities in DELTA STATE was reached with over 2000 learners. The following Schools were beneficiaries:
1. Okpele-Ama Primary School,Tebujor
2. Toruyor Primary School,Opuede-bubor
3. Kupa Primary School, Ubefan
4. Kere Primary School, Egwa
5. Pepper-ama Primary School
All Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri south west Local Government area of Delta state. This project was carried out as a follow-up to our last year’s Project Street2School where we identified over 90% were lacking these items.
Items distributed includes: A Pair of School Uniforms, A Pair of School Sandals, Notebooks and Writing Materials.
The team of Volunteers from EBF was led by the President and Founder, Dcn ERNEST BEBENIMIBO, his wife and co-founder EBF, Mrs LOVETH ERNEST BEBENIMIBO, the Director General, Dcn OGAGA DARLINGTON OSSAI, The Director Riverine Communities, Mrs Augustina ODUDU, The Welfare Director, Ms Juliet Seiyefa, The Media Director, Hon GHARVAN WHITE OFUAFO and host of many others such as Micheal EFFIONG, Blessing Emmanuel, Dennis Sokoto and many more others too numerous to mention.
The DG, Deacon OGAGA DARLINGTON OSSAI used this medium to call on all Parents to prioritize the education of their children. Parents must understand that it is their primary responsiblity to cater for the Education of their children. Instead of waiting for aides and arms to help their kids, Parents should engage in any form of odd jobs if possible and see their children through school. Education gives your kids a better chance at Social Mobility.
We hereby appreciate all our donors, sponsors and board of trustee members for their support. We call them to support this move as we are just one phase gone. We intend to reach out to over 5000 kids after phase four is carried out.
The DG of EBF, Deacon OGAGA DARLINGTON OSSAI hereby use this privilege to call on Government and oil company to more partner with NGOs such EBF to reach those termed “unreached in the Society”.
