Foundation to provide scholarships for orphanage children, less privileged
Canary Point Corporate Services has entered into a partnership agreement with Sponsor a Child Through School Foundation (SACTS) through its CSR initiative – Canary Foundation – to identify children in orphanages and less privileged communities for scholarship opportunities up to the tertiary institution.
Speaking at the Foundation’s launch, Chief Operating Officer, Canary Point Corporate Services, Tolu Oke, said: “The goal for us as a foundation and as a responsible organisation, is the full development of every child, we will continue to play our part in providing life-changing opportunities through quality education.”
Through the partnership, Canary Foundation has had opportunity to be part of the educational journey of some wonderful children; so far, they have 17 children on their sponsorship list who are in various stages of education in secondary and tertiary school system.
The Foundation’s mantra is ‘Securing the future of tomorrow’s leaders and it is hoped that the interaction with children will be a life-long journey to the point where beneficiaries become mentors and sponsors in future to ensure the sustainability of the vision.
A cheque of N5 million was presented to the SACTS foundation with an assurance of continued support towards the education of the beneficiaries.
Chief Operating Officer, SACTS, Nike Richie-Ogbodu, received the donation, and in her remarks said, “I am deeply grateful to the Foundation for coming through at the time that funds were needed to support the children.
The resultant effect of the pandemic made it hard for the beneficiaries who are late starters to get an education. On our part, we will ensure that the children get all the motivation they need to excel.”
