Sung-Bawiara Foundation supported three at-risk girls of the Wechiau Girls Model Junior High School with bicycles to facilitate their movement to school and back.
The initiative is the organisation’s self-initiated Girls Education Support (GES) Project. The project is aimed at empowering girls who are very brilliant and at-risk to falling out of school giving their vulnerability to lacking basic needs to attend school or acquire skills.
The team from Sung-Bawiara Foundation was led by Tahiru Lukman a consultant to the organisation. He noted that, the bicycles are strictly not for sales and is also the exclusive property of the girls. He added “no parent or guardian or teacher have the right to seized the bicycles from the girls to use, especially during week days”
The brief ceremony includes teaching staff and management of the school, the guardians/parents of the girls and the Wa West District education deputy director of education incharge of finance and administration.
The parents pledge to support in maintaining the bicycles for the girls as they expressed gratitude to Sung-Bawiara Foundation and the Headmistress for facility to ensure their daughters benefit from the gesture.
