Government Senior Secondary School, Eneka in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State went agog over the weekend as Glory Foundation, a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) held a hope-giving programme tagged, “Gathering of Eagles”.
The programme, which had the girl-child as its target witnessed a thread of events including molestation, rape, sexual misconduct among others.
The founder of the NGO, Miss. Oyebola Glory Boluwatife who served in Rivers State as a Corp member said, “even if the girl- child has been molested, sexually abused and lost her virginity, there is still hope for her, she can still soar high, she can still be who God wants her to be”.
The girl-child advocate, Boluwatife stressed that the Glory Foundation was borne out of passion and that this edition of the programme was funded by her.
“The funding was out of my purse. I also got assisted by some close friends and members of my family. I cannot do it alone; the government, corporate organisation and private individuals are welcome to support this programme. The library is empty; I want to fill it up with books”.
The highpoint of the occasion was the presentation of a shelf for library to the school.
The Principal, teachers and excited students expressed joy over the success of the programme and the impact on the students and entire school.
Miss Timipre Ruth George, the founder of CampusHelp, Readers Function, Engineer Aborisade Adetola, founder of Child and Green Foundation were among those that graced the occasion.
