HOW Foundation rewards outstanding students with laptops
The HOW Foundation, a non-profit organisation, with key focus on malaria, prostrate cancer, youth leadership and mentorship, recently rewarded two outstanding students with laptop gifts in Lagos.
Sometime at the end of 2016, a call was made for students, who have made excellent grades in their examinations, to send in their results so that they may receive a prize and on February 14, 2017 (Valentine’s Day), and the organization did just that.
For choosing to #BeTheBest, two brilliant students of St Gregory’s College, Ojeaga Aidenomoehi and Gbegaje Danrome, became proud recipients of brand new laptops as a result of their excellent performances. They could barely contain their excitement and their parents were beaming with joy as well.
Apart from the parents and guardians of the two students, CEO of The HOW Foundation, Ms Antonia Ally, also presented the prizes with the support of motivational speaker, Mr Joshua Ajitena, during the prize giving ceremony.
Ms Ally said: “There is nothing like working hard towards a goal, whatever it is, we want to give the children something to look forward to. Motivation and reward go hand in hand, we motivate the children to be the best and we reward the best, we believe it’s the best way to keep kids encouraged.”
The HOW Foundation is developing a strategic system where children with outstanding and consistent grades from public schools in Nigeria would be given an opportunity to apply for How Foundation scholarships to top Nigerian and international Universities in the future.
