The governor’s wife, ably represented by her Personal Private Secretary, Hajiya Samira Bappa, applaud the foundation for works done so far and also sponsoring 60 orphans to acquire education.
I congratulate the management and staff of Juvenile Aid Foundation for celebrating their two years of existence and achievements recorded during the period under review.
I observe that this year is a year of celebration with a difference because we are making arrangements with this foundation to see how we can partner to boost grassroots education.
I am aware that the foundation is currently sponsoring the education of about 60 orphans in this state, this is a welcome development.
I commend and appreciate the giant efforts of Juvenile Aid Foundation for their positive thinking about the future of our children particularly the vulnerable groups.
The state government, recently approved foreign scholarship to 200 indigenes of this state to study Medicine, Paramedical, Engineering courses and Computer Sciences among others in India, Sudan, China and Cyprus.
As we all know, government alone cannot take care of all the educational needs of the citizens.
l am appealing to well-meaning individuals and other NGOs in this state to emulate the Juvenile Aid Foundation in this regard.
the Governor's wife said.
Mr Kamal Dalhatu, the Chairman of the Foundation, appreciated Mrs Matawalle for her pledge to support the foundation.
