To reduce the number of out-of-school children in the country and help widows in society, Lawrence Grace Foundation has urged the Federal Government to formulate a policy that will keep children in school and a workable policy document that will cater for the widow’s well-being.

Speaking at the empowerment of 200 widows, free medical outreach, and payment for scores of school children whose parents cannot afford school fees in Agiliti, Mile 12 Area of Lagos state, with the theme, ‘No act of kindness is ever wasted,’ the convener, Oluyinka Adewoye urged government at all levels to create mechanisms through which the needy’s well being can be attended to.

 

 

 

 

 

She stated that the aim of the Foundation is to reduce the poverty rate in society to the minimum as well as the rate of out-of-school children in society. “Part of the foundation objectives is to also train widows in different types of handiwork, which will make them self-reliant and able to contribute their quota to nation-building at large.”

Adewoye pointed out that the Foundation started four years ago with the aim of reaching out to widows, and the less privileged in society as well as empowering more than 4000 indigent people.

 

 

 

Also speaking at the event, Programme Coordinator, Kemisola Adeyemi, urged the government to establish more old people’s homes for senior citizens in all the 774 local councils in Nigeria to cater to their needs.
