    ****************************************************************************************


    In 2017, we established a groundbreaking initiative through our foundation—a free nursery and primary school for children in our local community of Edjeba. We aimed to educate indigent children from low-income backgrounds in our immediate vicinity and beyond. Recognizing the pressing need, we expanded our efforts in 2021 by completing our second free school for indigent children in a slum area within the Warri South LGA of Delta State, Nigeria.

    Today, our free schools, owned and operated by our foundation, educate and transform the lives of 325 students from low-income families. However, we require your support to enhance their educational experience further. The project urgently requires books, toys, school supplies, mentors, and volunteer teachers who can contribute their time and expertise.

    Aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 4, we aspire to provide quality education to children in the most rural parts of Africa, with a particular focus on our home country, Nigeria. We envision replicating these low-cost schools across various remote areas in Africa.

    In a remarkable collaboration, we recently completed the first-ever STEM and Innovation Lab in partnership with the King of our city, the Olu & Olori of Warri Kingdom. This exceptional STEM lab will serve over 1000 children from various slum areas in Delta State, Nigeria. To make this endeavour a success, we are seeking volunteers from around the world who possess experience in technology. Together, we can guide and inspire indigent children during their visit to our school, providing them with invaluable knowledge and skills.

    We want to assure you that during your volunteer experience, we will provide adequate security, food, and accommodation free of charge. Your volunteer spirit will not be burdened with any fees for your time and travel.

    Mr. Zion, the founder of our foundation, is a dedicated advocate for educating out-of-school children. He is passionate about ensuring that no child is left behind. To pursue this vision, Mr. Zion established our foundation, actively promoting initiatives to make education affordable for low-income families. Additionally, we operate a free nursery and primary school for vulnerable street kids, where more than 325 pupils receive formal education.

    As a proud father, Mr. Zion has a son named Jason, born in February, just like him, and a daughter named Melissa. He had chosen their names before their birth. Mr. Zion's wife, Elohor, is integral to our team. Our location is conveniently located just 20 minutes away from our school.

    We are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to you in our communities. By joining us, you will be making a profound impact on the lives of these deserving children. We can't wait to embrace your volunteer spirit and witness the positive change we can create together.
