This year has been an exciting year to say the least for Adegrange Child Foundation (ACF). After our first successful program (Peer-to-Peer Dialogue) in the summer of 2017 in Lagos, Nigeria, we quietly struck a chord with an organization called Young Shapers Club (YSC), in which the mission of YSC is strongly focused on providing quality education to vulnerable children. With an all-inclusive mission of bridging the gap, YSC seeks out to provide mentorship, scholarships and educational materials, in addition, to education the young about their health, nutrition and environmental safety. Under the UN SDG's goal 4: Quality Education , ACF goal is to make sure that children who are not fortunate have an opportunity to become educated. We believe that every child, despite of, should be given an opportunity to have good educational structure that is based on developing their knowledge at a foundational stage. We also believe that every child should have a safe environment in which they can truly function among their peers, higher authorities and in society at large.
With this in mind, AdeGrange Child Foundation is glad to partner with an organization that is making a solid stand in providing quality education, mentorship, scholarships and serves as a bridge in order to provide a hopeful future for children. Thank you Young Shapers Club!
