Child Education Projects in Houston
Below are the pictures of the students receiving scholarship awards.
Chief Stephen O. Nwankwo Children’s Literacy Foundation International Incorporated in Houston Texas, USA holds various programs that cater to the needs of the deprived rural communities of Nigeria, especially the children. We focus on providing the underprivileged youth of these areas the means to attain a quality education and accessible health care that will strengthen and empower them for the rest of their lives. At our Non-Profit Organization in Houston, Texas, our duty is to focus on educating communities and make them aware of the importance of learning and how it can impact their future in so many ways.
Education Awareness Programs
Helps the people – the parents and the children – living in the deprived communities of Nigeria know how essential education is and how the further expansion of knowledge actually allows them to break away from the throes of poverty.
- Awarding of scholarship engenders unity and cooperation
During the presentation of the scholarship awards to all the benefiting children, their parents/guardians, leaders of the community, and representatives of the Post Primary School Management Board were in attendance.
A key-note address ‘VALUE OF EDUCATION IN A RURAL BASED ECONOMY” from the desk of the President/Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation Chief STEPHEN O. NWANKWO was presented by the secretary of local organizing committee, Mr. Herbert Okoye Nsude.
There are tons of kids in Nigeria whose families do not have the means to send them to school for a proper education. We seek to change that as much as we can by offering scholarship grants that give these children the much-needed chance to attend school and, eventually, improve their lives. Those who have an immense desire to learn should be given the chance to do so.
- Brief History of the Foundation
The foundation’s scholarship exercise started in the year 2014 with 45 children receiving scholarships i.e. 26 Senior Secondary III and SS I students. In 2015/2016, the foundation awarded 51 students with scholarship, SSIII 28 students and SS I 23 students. In 2016/2017 academic year, a total number of 85 students were given award, thus: SS III: 51 students while SS I – 34 students. In summary, the foundation has awarded scholarship to 184 students in its third year of existence. So far, between the year 2014/2015, 2015/2016, 2016/2017, 2017/2018, the foundation has offered secondary school scholarship award to 261 (two hundred and sixty one) students.
Health Education Programs
Education on health is crucial, especially for developing countries who have limited and even outdated information on how to properly take care of themselves. One of the things that have severely affected Nigerian communities is their lack of knowledge and access to health care in general. We seek to change this by providing the underprivileged parents with relevant information regarding all aspects of health.
Granting scholarships to the underprivileged kids of Nigerian communities requires proper funding from the right people. This is why our organization constantly works in the most effective ways to solicit for funds that enable us to facilitate the provision of these benefits to the people we serve.
Student Exchange Programs
We want to give Nigerian kids the chance to get an advanced education in some of the most developed countries of the world. For this reason, we organize student exchange programs with other nations so we can provide these opportunities to as many deserving Nigerian kids as we can.
In appreciation of the efforts of the Chief Executive Officer of the CSONCLIFI.ORG, the Enugu State Government Post Primary Schools Management Board (PPSMB) awarded the community secondary school with ten desktop computers, furniture, and electric generator.
