The support programme, which will run from October 2020 through September 2021, is a social impact effort to address the high rate of out-of-school teenage girls prevalent in Akwa Ibom State, as validated by relevant reports and studies.
It is funded by the Dew of Hope Foundation, private philanthropists and corporate partners and seeks to reach 300 out-of-school vulnerable girls in Essien Udim, Ikot Ekpene, and Ini Local Government Areas of Akwa Ibom State through ensuring the re-enrolment of the beneficiaries, provision of branded school materials, and support to stay in school. The beneficiaries will also be provided with HIV/AIDS awareness whilst complying with the health protocols issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am happy and fortunate to be a partner in this programme. Every child is our child and it is our duty to ensure that they resume their education in a condition that is safe, especially in view of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Oluleye said.
