We at Impact Africa Foundation continue to drive and achieve our objective of providing support to the less privileged children in Africa. This time, we were in Rivers State, Nigeria to visit Godknows Atata, a 15 year old, JSS 2 student of Government Secondary School, Okarki, Rivers State.
Godknows Atata was born with Amelia and has lived without aid but found convenience in his condition. He attends school like every normal kid, writes and socializes. Our attention was drawn to this kid by a National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) member, Aron Smiggle Blaresyn who currently serves as a teacher in Godknows’ school. The visit was championed by the Education Ambassador for Impact Africa Foundation, Vincent Adeoba.
The visit to GodKnows was welcomed and appreciated by the students and teachers of the school. With the support of the public via donations and suggestions, a wheelchair was donated to Godknows and a scholarship to sponsor his education up to University level.
This action undertaken by us with your support further buttresses the fact that disability is no excuse for failure. In disability lies ability and it takes determination and our collective responsibility to provide for the less privileged in our society, see beyond the present and work towards a better future.
We do not take for granted your support in helping dreams come true and we appreciate you.
Below are pictures from the visit.
Thank you all.
